Welcome to my site! I work as a costume-designer, an artist, and a teacher, 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.

Inspiration Florian Nicolle

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

I am utterly mesmerized by these illustrations by French  artist Florian Nicolle. Please visit his web-site for more beauty!

Experiment gone not-so-great…

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

I bought this nice accordion book in London at an Art Studio-shop, and wanted to do something special with it. I´ve been wanting a bright, hot pink book for my calender, and had read that one can dye paper with textile dye. The color is reactive, meaning it will go in to the fiber instead […]

me. collage.

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

I´m about to start a new project at teacher´s college, so maybe I should finish the last one post-wise… One of the assignments I gave to my students, was to make a visual presentation of themselves, in form of a collage. Here is my own answer to that challenge. There are lots of elements in […]

Life is…

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced.

Inspiration: Andrew Finnie

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Here is another inspiration-post for you. Andrew is one of my blog-buddies, all the way from Australia. I think we “met” through Illustration Friday, and have been visiting each others´ blogs since. He´s trained as a fine arts artist, but also works digitally with exploring his darker side, making illustrations for a book 😉 Here […]

IF- spooky

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is Spooky. I don´t know how spooky my illustration is, but if they decide to start playing, it could turn scary… Here´s Dusty Springfield´s Spooky. Personally I think the music is cool, and the hair-do is the frightening part!

my new calender book

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

After being creative with my Mac for seven hours straight, my back told me it was high time to do something else. Preferably not sitting down. So I gathered a few bits and pieces to see what I could do with them. They´re very wintery in color, aren´t they? I need a new calender-book next […]

Have a healthy Friday!

Friday, October 15th, 2010

I read an article in a Health-magazine today about how one can “exercise” the brain. Of course all the obvious things were there, stay away from toxics like tobacco and alcohol, eat healthy and get enough sleep and keep the rest of the body exercised as well. But one thing caught my eye. You make […]

My Dad

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Today I want to share with you a portrait I made some years ago of my Dad. It´s a mix of fabric paint, applique and machine-embroidery. It´s about 25×35 cm. This is certainly one of my favorite means of expression, and I´ve been wanting to do more pictures like this. One day… I learned this […]

Good news!

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Lots of times I think that I don´t want to watch the news, it´s all just bad news anyway, and sometimes it feels like I reach a limit of how much bad news I want to think about. So when really good news happens, when the happy endings reach the news headlines, when the world […]
