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.

A bit late for Valentine´s day, but LOVE is never out of place.

Painting-workshop with Brian Wallace in September. 48 hours on one the most characteristic islands on the west-coast of Norway! With a great artist!

9. The front door is guarded by my Arizonan lizard door-knocker. 10. self-portrait. In the local newspaper last Monday. Couldn´t have taken a better self-portrait if I´d tried 🙂 Through a glass-bowl with my art-friends. 11. makes me happy: stacks of silk fabric! For beauty and warmth. 12. inside my closet. Just a very small […]

the traveling viking

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Inspired by Matthew Cusick´s art, I snumbled head-over-heels into my old world atlas, scissors first! Old, as in out-dated. Countries have come and gone since this was new, when I was kid… Well, since it´s all about vikings here these days, I thought I´d have a go at a map-portrait. Cut, glued and collaged down. […]

Last week I delivered art for Stril Polar, this week it´s time to concentrate my attention to Viking Prince. I´ve already started, with good help from the 6th grade at Hasund Elementary School. Today I started piecing together their big viking-quilt. I need to stock up on my supply of velcro and backing-fabric to finish […]

Art-in-Natur: Kjopholmen

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Bømlo art group is celebrating it´s 30th anniversary this year. Double the amount of exhibitions, workshops, and a big Art-In-nature project. This is SO cool to be a part of! If you can read in Norwegian, click on the pictures, and read for yourself. For the rest of you, I´ll give a short introduction. There […]

Stril Polar

Friday, February 10th, 2012

Today is the Christening of STRIL POLAR. Earlier this week I was onboard getting all the artwork in place. So let me show you the ship and the art: Let´s start in the mess. This picture of a sea-house from Hareid. Another little sea-house, this one in Dimna. And this is what they look like […]

Continuing on the February Photo-challenge (which also sums up what I´ve been doing the past days): 4. A stranger. (The photo is a bit boring, but how do you take an exciting and interesting photo of a choir-rehearsal?) There is more than one stranger in the photo, common for all of them: they are turning […]

A brand new lap-top for my travels; I remembered the cords, the camera, and forgot to install Photoshop! Which means there´ll be a delay in the photos of my adventures the first half of the week. Oh no! I will reveal this much though. I am out on a little adventure 😉

I´m running a little behind on my posts here, it´s been a busy weekend. I´ll have to come back to that tomorrow 🙂 The other evening a friend visited me, wanting to learn how to make stamps. She´d brought a photo of her daughter, which we via Photoshop turned into a black&white version to base […]
