Marte was born in 1988 in Norway. She lives in a little red cabin at Hadeland and is dreaming of big adventures with a sleddog team. She has a degree in photojournalism and previously worked for UTEmagasinet. Marte does mainly outdoor-friendly assignments, as well as being a dog musher for the last ten years. Marte has the pictures in the book «Hundekjøring – For oss som ennå ikke har vunnet Finnmarksløpet» and had her first exhibition at «Revir» march 2017.
Animals and especially the relations to dogs have always had a significant part in her life, and when life got rough, the dogsledding became a necessary and important part of her recovery. Being outdoor and in nature is like meditation for her. In 2015 and 2017 she raced the Finnmarksløpet 500, but her race in 2017 had a wider meaning then any race before.
