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.

Well, I´ve got my home-made Bømlo-souvenirs in place! As I mentioned in an earlier post, my friend Anita at Marinaden (Sekstanten kjøpesenter, Sortland, Bømlo) wanted some original souvenirs to sell from her delicatessen-shop. The poem written on the black wall behind the display is part of my Bømlo-poem.  It´s not so much, but it will […]

Everyday life…

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Yesterday I received this beautiful orchid, delivered at my door. Curious to why, the card said it was a thank-you for singing at a friends wedding last weekend. I love to sing, and am happy to sing whenever the chance appears, so I was thankful I was asked to sing! And very happily surprised about […]

Inspire Me Thursday this week´s theme is Ticket. Directly inspired by the previous post (Arrival-Departure-ad), which  had posted just before  got the theme, I decided to explore the virtual ticket we all receive at the beginning of life: the Life-ticket. It admits one, and gives you the right to travel on down your own unknown […]

Marianne´s wedding!

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

I just received some pictures from Marianne from her wedding in Cobenhagen, and just  couldn´t wait until tomorrow to share! For those of you who haven´t followed the process: I made the bride´s dress.  The bride is a well-qualified sower, and made the brides-maids dresses herself.

SP: Guatemalan hammock

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

Calm seas never produce able seamen. – African Proverb. On days when life seems chaotic and unfair, this might be a good quote to remember. Not to ask for an easy life, but an interesting life, might be another way of saying it.  Axel just put up the hammock I bought in Guatemala some years […]

Just a little note to remind you of the Goody-giveaways: This months main giveaways deadline is the 20th.  And this months little extra: I asked for help in finding a good name for this little thing below, and got some good suggestions already. One of you giving me suggestions, I´ll send a little something.  I […]

The magic art of Agneta Burnett and Ida Austad Naasen

Monday, June 15th, 2009

One of my years teaching at Olavskulen Bømlo Folk High School, I had two very creative students in my Costume-and Fashion-design class. They didn´t limit themselves to sowing. Late in the fall we put aside all other classes, and had a “creative week”. They started by painting on a wall in the staircase down to […]
