Ina Otzko

I am born in Sandnessjøen, a small town on an island in the arctic Norway.
I balance my time between the visual and the healing arts and recieved my masters in arts from Goldsmiths College in UK and UdK in Berlin, Germany. You can find more about my art here.


I have lived most of my adult life abroad nomadically following my flow. I have two sisters, where I am the oldest and have a tight bond with them, my mother and my daughter, which I gave birth to in 1997. We share our spiritual belief and its more than the eye can see. Everything is connected.


I love life, being a mother, my work and the changing seasons, the rain, honesty, spending time with my loved ones, being alone, morning yoga, talking with strangers, floating in the sea, the smell of salty sun kissed skin, champagne on Tuesdays, walking barefoot in dew wet grass a summer morning and on dry icy snow, strong winds, wild sea, unknown forests, listening to birds singing in the morning while drinking coffee in bed, inspiring and meaningful conversations, new experiences, cooking dinner together, kissing, finding new ways of exploring life and the world, energy exchange, driving fast, long road trips, contemplating on stillness, reading, gazing into the horizon, the light of the full moon reflecting on the sea, the desert, a bonfire and sparkling wide open eyes.
