In the early 1990's, Rokne started to paint. Some of these paintings featured Frank Zappa.

After various exhibitions all over Scandinavia, she did her first Zappa-dedicated expo in 2011 at The Yellow Snow Festival in Larvik.
This "Zappa-In-Zappa" exhibit showed paintings and collages.

In 2012, she held another Zappa-inspired art exposition at the Larvik Yellow Snow Festival, and she also contributed several works to the Zappanale exposition in Bad Doberan, Germany.

It was the first time that I saw her work in real life.
Quite exceptional.
The paintings are impressive, but it's the collages that make you go 'Wow!'.

The website says that she will have another expo at the Zappa-Union Festival, later this year.

Here are some samples of her work:

"Dumb All Over" by Rokne.
