I'm so glad that you are here! My name is Marte Charlotte and I'm the person behind Dreaming up North.
I'm a photographer, videographer and graphic designer from the coast of Helgeland, in Norway.
Even though I've always loved the outdoors and been a creative person, this love grew during a season in life when I was battling severe mental health issues. For years I've been chained to my house or bed, not being able to do anything other than just be dreaming about the future I would have. This dream kept me going through the darkest of times.
During better periods I would build my skills and work gradually towards my goals. I can truly tell you that nature and art changed my life. Dreaming up North is the outcome of this journey, and I'm so proud of it!
On this website I will sell high quality products and art, but I will also use this platform to share my story and hopefully be of help to someone and break some stigmas related to mental health. If I can get better, then so can you!
I would love to get to know you and hear about your story as well!
