ABOUT meet Marte Charlotte

Hi you!

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!


I I love community Some of the greatest gifts in life is getting to know other peoples stories, the good as well as the bad! Community is created when stories are shared.
II My sidekick Ilia, the Alaskan Malamute is my partner in crime and great joy in life. This dog changed my world! You will see her a lot in here, be warned..
III I love the ocean I've had a obssession with the ocean for as long as I can remember. There is not much that gives me greater peace than to sit and listen to the crashing waves.
