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.

“Perpleks” won! We won! We won the Hedda-prize for Best Show!!! (The Hedda prize is the Norwegian theatre-prize, equivalent to the American Tony.) Perpleks was staged at Rogaland Teater this winter, and I was fortunate enough to be part of the wonderful creative team as the costume-designer. Glenn Andre Kaada, the director, with the Hedda-prize. […]

Kikki´s picture

Friday, June 13th, 2014

My latest commissioned family picture. A composition including lots of details from their summer-house and their family. A truly wonderful family, might I add! I spent a whole day with them, celebrating a birthday. The bright yellow is a low-growing moss, and it´s not enhanced, it really is that bright in real life. The size […]

World Environment Day

Thursday, June 5th, 2014

World Environment Day is today. There are so many important areas to focus on. Greening the Blue´s slogan is Raise your voice, not the Sea Level.

Constructing a wearable ocean….

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

A costume that matches the sea. The dress of a galloon-figure. A moveable costume for a very pregnant dancer. Using only natural fibers, so that I can dye them later in the same thunder-ocean-blue. The top is made in raw silk jersey, so it will stretch and adapt to her changing size. The arms reach […]

Kong Kødd

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

“Kong Kødd” or “Herding the King´s Rabbits” premiered at the StoryTellers Festival in Oslo on Saturday. Three excellent story tellers had joined forces in this version of the traditional fairytale. Kristine Haugland, Øystein Vestre and Sara Birgitte Øfsti wanted to challenge themselves, by working with a voice-instrumentalist, a choreographer and adding costumes and set. And […]
