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.

I can see the light!

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

This is also a journal page, and I am quite happy with it. The picture is transferred from a photo in the local newspaper onto fabric via glue-varnish and a rub-off technique. I´ve used acrylics to soften the edges. Oh, summer is coming! I know it is! (Which is a good thing to be sure […]

A somewhat abstract image this week. Feathers, homemade marbled paper, paint and text. Just playing around in the journal.

Meeting myself in the door

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

Yesterday I attended a comtemporary, classical concert at the Borealis-Festival in Bergen. I was so full of pre-justice, thinking it would all be random “plings” and “plongs” with no rhyme or rhythm. I had to eat my harsh words, because I really enjoyed it! Oh, don´t you just hate it when your horizon is widened! […]

Evolution, baby!

or… The pillar of society The different conditions and roles for women have been on my mind this week, and I guess this is a comment on women´s “value”.

a new skirt!

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

I´ve been playing around with my sewing machine today. I made a copy of the UNO-skirts we used in Brytningstid. I had this wonderful lime-and-pink rayon fabric that´s been lying around for years, and it was just enough fabric for the skirt. It doesn´t really show on the pictures, but the pattern is a true […]

I attended ARTFEST last year, and had such an interesting and fun time, meeting so many wonderful people, I really wanted to go back. What […]

Funky-Monkey and Party-Penguin

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Isn´t this fabric just fun? With all the crazy-little-party-penguins!? And the funky-monkeys!? I already made a sweater with the funky-monkey-fabric, so now it was time to check out the party-penguins. I used the same pattern (more or less) for my second sweater, but this one has a hood.

My niese, age 6, and nephew, age 4, painted these pictures on one of their Christmas-visits. I had them framed for my sister´s (their mother) birthday. Acrylics on watercolor paper. When you give kids proper equipment & tools, it´s amazing how “professional” their art can look. Especially when you frame their work. I am so […]

Unfortunately this is not my original image, I have merely altered it, and added the text.
