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.

the answer and then some

Friday, May 18th, 2012

The answer to yesterday´s little quiz is: It´s a giraffe! The neck of a giraffe to be exact. Yesterday was the Norwegian National day, and I celebrated at home quietly painting and drawing giraffes 🙂 At the bottom I´ll reveal the winner of the little goody give-away and a the prize. Giraffes have the funniest faces! […]

quiz and goody give-away

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

The quiz is simple: What is this? The best answer will win a little goody give-away, but I can´t reveal it just yet… 🙂 You have to be quick tough, I´ll draw a winner tomorrow!

recycled jewelry

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

In the spirit of recycling instead of buying new: 2 necklaces, two pairs of earrings, beads and stones that have been lying around unused for a long time are now put together into one “brand new” necklace. Now maybe I´ll have to dig out my old gypsy-hippie tunics to match 😉

Madam Prom

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Let me introduce you to Madam Prom. A grand old lady proudly situated in Steinkjellergaten in Bergen from the 18th century. The ever-energetic Rita of UniqueDesigns opened another store, this time in the heart of Bergen, just above Bryggen. It opened just a week ago, and I am proud to be presented in her new […]

A real treasure map!

Monday, May 14th, 2012

I´ve made this treasure map over Bømlo, my little island, filled with treasures. And the best part is that they´re for real! In all 12 locations spread around the island there will be an art-in-nature-treasure. Kjøpholmen I´ve told you about already. And the Draugr eyes. The third project I´ll tell you more about as it […]

New silk and vintage lace

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

On my work-desk right now: A new cream silk dress and vintage, hand-crochet lace. The dress was a real bargain at a sale, and the lace I got at a London vintage textile fair. Putting them together hopefully makes a happy union.

A few small pendants made for upcoming birthdays 🙂 The corals and the turquoise I got in Mexico, the red wooden bead is from China.

Draugr is the name of one of Bømlo Art Group´s Art-in-nature-projects. It´s the name of a Nordic  sea-ghost. One of the members, Bjørn Inge Gåsland, is a glass-artist, and he´s made the big glass-baubles, looking like eyes. Today, I was so lucky I got to go with him, when he was mounting a pair of […]

two light towers

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

A couple of light towers painted with acrylics. One a miniature of 4×4 cm… The second one is in a journal I need to send on. As you can see, light-houses and -towers are on my mind 🙂
