Kristine Norlander was born in Oslo 1972, and have been teaching visual arts, media and communications in an upper secondary school in Akershus, Norway since 1997. She have always loved to express herself through different medias – like drawing, paint, clay – and lately – through her iPhone. In 2014 she finished a MA in Art & Design Education. Her research was about how to use smartphones as a creative tool, focusing on Instagram as a creative network and how it influenced the ways to express oneself through photography. To her - using the phone to frame and embrace the beauty of everyday surroundings and transform them into digital sketches has becomed a way of living. Photography has turned into a language she loves to speak. A language that tend to be minimalistic, sometimes abstract.
