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.

This beautiful painting is made by Sylva Marwoll and it hangs above the kitchen table at my friend´s house. Two young boys of 4 had spent some time looking at the maps in an atlas. Afterwards when they are eating supper where this picture is hanging, the following conversation takes place: Jonas: Look, your picture […]

Today was my first real day of work on Marilyn, a show Haugesund Theatre is staging in March. Karin Sundvall is the costume-designer, and for once I am the seamstress 🙂 Karin is so talented, with heaps of great ideas, and such a pleasure to be with. I am so happy and honored to be […]

building the land

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Or building the landscape is more correct. One of the coolest things ever is to make a creative plan, and then watch it come to life. Below is part of the set-design for Fiddler on the roof. My little cardboard model. And then the real thing being built! The guys in the front left in […]

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life. Pablo Picasso One of my favorite quotes. And one of my favorite kids.

A new group of teachers-to-be are deep into their reply-painting project. Here´s a glimpse of a few works-in-progress. Kristin is painting Munch´s Madonna in a very pregnant version. Another Munch-picture in a brighter and cheerier mood being painted by Rebekka. Rebecca is making a Face-book-profile for Mona Lisa… 🙂 And Inger Marie is working on […]

backdrop progress

Tuesday, January 25th, 2011

Bits and pieces and baby-steps. As more and more of the background is covered by a backing-color, the progress will only show in smaller parts of the backdrop. I´ve laid gold-leaf on God´s eye. I thought about what I had read, that no one could see God, because the light surrounding him would be so […]

Monday, January 24th, 2011

I promise this will be my last Christmas-post! But I just have to share with you all the wonders I got in my surprise-trade-package from my artist-friend Tammy McGee in Canada. Now don´t you just love this little snow-girl she´s made from an old salt-shaker?!! You can see more of them right here. Her body […]

Redesign weekend

Monday, January 24th, 2011

Let´s start the weekend with Nina´s own design. This is her birch from the garden that instead of ending up as fire-wood, turned into a jewelry-ladder. Anyone who´s ever been a scout recognizes the knots and can see that this is an easy-make. Practical, natural and beautiful. Nina´s doilies made into table-runner. Looks good, doesn´t […]
