Lene Kilde grew up in Rælingen outside Oslo. She has a master's degree in production design from Oslo and Akershus College at Kjeller. She has also studied at Einar Granum's Art School and Asker Art School. Lene was recently awarded the Norwegian Culture Council's three-year scholarship for young artists.

Early on, Lene mainly worked with figurative steel wire sculptures, through the steel wire sculptures she challenges ideas about the differences between sculpture and drawing.

Lene Kilde creates sculptures inspired by children and their emotions. She thinks that children's body language is their purest form of communication. This is visualized by showing very few body parts, usually just the hands and feet, which are then placed in proportion to each other using metal mesh. Her intention is to invite the audience to use their own imagination so that they can complete the sculptures themselves and fill in the lines and volume. The sculptures are made of concrete, metal mesh and air.
