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.

17th of May banner finished

Monday, May 9th, 2011

Let the National day celebration begin! Førde School´s new banner is finished! I designed the two-sided silk banner a while ago, and have spent the past weeks sewing, appliqueing, machine-embroidering and fabric-painting. The main side is an ocean-view of the town of Førde in Sveio. Mainly painted on silk, but the text is appliqued on. […]

Stavanger, art and costumes

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Stavanger is Norway´s third largest city, and the nations´oil capitol. Only 3 hours drive from where I live, and yet for some reason, I hardly ever visit this hidden treasure of a city. With a mix of of tiny, old wooden houses and hyper-modern offshore-financed architecture, you´re bound to find something you like. This is […]

A new round of students working on acrylic portraits. Oh, some of them look like so much fun to work with! Combinations of portraits from art-history and family-portraits. How about this mix of bob Dylan and Edward Munch? Or these lovely skin-tones. At first they thought the big size was intimidating, but now they think […]

on the other side

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

I´m working on the other side of the banner, eagerly working toward the finishing details. This side is of the same heavy satin silk, this time in sky-blue. In the middle of the school-yard in Førde, there is a small bump with trees on, the kids call it the crows´ nest. This is silk-printed onto […]

the fishy picture

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

Ok. Time to start finishing some projects, don´t you think? A least, part of them… The painted fish-skin is dry, and I´ve started sewing it together. I actually really like the raw shape of it, but the plan is to make a very strict picture, with sharp edges. All painted, and all sewn together. It´s […]

flea-market finds

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

Nr 22 on my 42-list is to go to a flea-market. The season has arrived, and just in time: I need new closets for my new office. At Solgry I found this oak -closet, which I very much plan to paint. All wood, and with loads of tiny drawers inside. Stay tuned, it will change […]

Inspired by Carla Sonheim´s art postcard-exchange idea a year back, and Elizabeth´s telling me about mail-art, I thought this might be the perfect opportunity to try it out. In other words, I´d love to do a little artmail-exchange with you. So here´s the deal: if you send me a handmade artsy-postcard, I´ll send you a […]
