Aurora Early Life
Aurora Aksnes was born in Stavanger University Hospital on June 15, 1996, as the youngest of three children to midwife May-Britt and garage door salesman Jan oystein Aksnes. Miranda, her eldest sister, is a cosmetics artist and former teacher. Viktoria, her other sister, is a fashion designer, stylist, and blogger. Her first three years were spent in Hle, a little village where her parents had resided for 15 years. Aurora acquired an appreciation for the outdoors, music, and traditional clothes, like caps and long skirts, in her Hle home.
Later, the family relocated to western Norway, to a residence in Drange, a small town in the Os highlands, a rural municipality in Hordaland near Bergen and Lysefjord. “When there are hardly any vehicles moving around, the roads are narrow and uneven, and there are plenty of trees everywhere; it’s extremely peaceful, and the internet is poor,” Aurora says. She’s also likened it to the imaginary world of Narnia.

Aurora resides in Bergen, but she regularly visits her parents in Os. She describes herself as an introvert. She had numerous loved ones taken away from her at a young age.

Aurora also mentioned collecting dead insects, especially moths such as “Nightcrawler.”
