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 guides at Moster

Sunday, July 13th, 2014

It´s already been some years ago that I designed the work uniforms for the guides at Moster. Based on a late medieval silhouette, the dresses are sewn in matka silk, which is a scrap-silk, very comfortable to wear. The belts have a text from the old church-bell, and old catholic prayer of “Ave Maria…” The […]

Bømlo brønnbåtservice are Christening two new ships today: Øyfjord and Øysund, and two of their suppliers wanted to give them gifts on the big day.

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

It´s only the second time around that I ship my art abroad, but it´s still such a thrill! These boxes are off to Spain, and in two weeks I´m joining them again. Onboard. In Spain. Cool, huh?!? 😉

Fabric swatch book

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

I´ve attended a couple of fabric painting and printing workshops, and all the swatches and trials have been floating around making a mess. I wanted to somehow make a system where I could have them all in one place, and still have the opportunity to remove one of them if I needed to. So I […]

DIY: Indian cushions

Friday, July 4th, 2014

Do you want to make your own Indian sitting cushions? Here´s how: I have a couple of old saris in my treasure-chest, and wanted to use them for something practical. Using an ordinary 45x45cm cushion, I made an equally ordinary pillow-case in the same size (actually it works better if the cad is a couple […]

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

A new big commission is soon on it´s way out of the door. But first, varnishing, drying and framing the pictures… Not to mention the packing process. Shipping them requires extra attention on the packing. It seems dull, but a lot more time goes into this part of the process than you´d think. So not all […]
