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.

more pink

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

I won! I won, and I got a prize! A hot pink, home-made, crochet duster. All the way from down-under! From the generous Deborah at Homemaker Honey. I have to admit, as a textile-artist, I sometimes feel my true title should be dust-producer! Working with textiles really does produce more dust than a lot of […]

Calender accordion

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Oh, I thought I´d posted this ages ago! This is the beginning of my pink accordion book. Seems a bit awkward posting this now, after I just posted the finished pages. But I know some of you are interested in the process, seeing how things develope, so i thought I´d post it anyway. So, here […]

Inspired by Tracy Moore´s lomo-group meeting at the Artfest Annex: My new orange Blackbird Fly camera. Isn´t she a beauty?! And I´m gonna take some pretty cool pictures with her, if all goes after plan. The black tracks on the side of the film will be visible. Like this one taken by Patrick Ng. I´m very […]

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is journey, so I thought maybe a travel-journal might be appropriate? My calender/travel-journal/art-journal with workshop-notes and Artfest-trades. (Love my pink pages after the pale pages of winter!) Not all pages are finished yet, this is a work-in-progress. Some stamps, some scraps, some tape, some paint… … some crayons, some lettering, […]

Glass and oil

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

Yesterday´s exploration field-trip went to Tacoma, south of Seattle. We visited Museum of Glass, first stop was the hot-hut, where the glass-art was made. The best part of the exhibition was named Kids Design Glass, the name should say it all. Like the funky “Shark Attack”  based on the drawing by Erica Hankins, age 8,below. […]

We all know that arting without chocolate is like swimming without water. Or something similar. Yesterday Anita and I visited Theo Chocolate Factory in Seattle. (Our guide assured us none of us would turn into blueberries) All natural ingredients, fair-trade and organic. Couldn´t be better! Dried cocoa-beans on their way to this big, magical machine: […]

Lines- Photo Friday

Friday, April 15th, 2011

Inside an abandoned bunker at Fort Warden in Port Townsend I found these beautiful withered lines. Please click for a bigger version, it looks better big 🙂 .

Lomo-meet at the Artfest annex

Friday, April 15th, 2011

What goes on in Pioneer Square in downtown Seattle? Teesha and Tracy Moore has THE coolest art-studio there, the Artfest Annex. Almost every Wednesday evening they have a gathering. This week Tracy had a Lomography-meeting. Lucky me, who just happend to be in Seattle this week 🙂 Tiphoni Moore is also an artist and she […]

Seattle- antiques

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Tyler and I on an exploration tour in Seattle, looking at antiques and art-supplies. The antique-malls here are huge! This is Pacific Galleries. This shows the almost the full length of the room one way, the other is longer. So what would you like, huh? This beautiful quilt made from silk cigar-labels. Or a ball […]

Arting with Tyler

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

This is the beautiful Tyler and her Mom, Pam, in Tyler´s workspace. I´ve stayed with Tyler a couple of days in Seattle. We had a wonderful day out exploring Seattle. (I´ll show you the pictures soon) And another day, arting in her house. I´ve showed you my little pendant-book. I made another one for Tyler. […]
