Early in her career she produced illustrations for collections of her father's poetry. Then in 1968 she entered a vocational school in Kerteminde in Denmark to become a teacher of embroidery. In 1970 she took a job as a therapist in Tórshavn hospital where she worked with mentally handicapped people, teaching them embroidery and other art forms.

From 1982 she learned scientific illustration at the Academy of Arts in Århus, and became illustrator specialising in marine animals at the Jerlesborg School in Tjarnö, Sweden in 1990. She is currently the only artist at the Faroese Natural History Museum, and has gained international recognition through illustrations she has produced for Postverk Føroya to use on many series of postage stamps.
