Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

Art by accident

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

This is a picture I made with my friend and fellow artist, Tanja Huglen.  Last year I visited her, and after the kids were sent off to bed, we found all her paint and started to play. She was unhappy about some etchings she had made, but had kept them to use the back of […]

Mariannes wedding dress

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Here is a peak of what will become Mariannes wedding dress. The fabrics are silk crepe de chine and silk chiffons. And she made the glass beads herself! I always like asking the bride to contribute in the making of her own dress, and this is perfect! She is very into symbols, and the wide […]

A relatively big job, but who doesn´t like a challenge?!! […]

Textile Treasures

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

I am still unpacking from my trip to the States, and unraveled these treasures today. I don´t know what I am going to make of them, but I can´t wait to get started, no matter what it is! I´ll probably use them for textile necklaces and aprons.  Oh, and here is another picture of me […]

Here are a couple of my pictures I made in Misty Mawns / L.K.Ludwigs classes. They are not fully assembled yet, but I like them anyway. And it was such fun making them. Metal is cool! I could tell you the technique, but it all seems like  alchemy to me, so I wouldn´t really know […]
