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.

more marques letters

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

It´s a bi project, making all the letters for the Grease-set. These are some of the guys making them. They are hard-working, and I am trying to be ahead of them, getting more letters designed, to make sure they can keep busy. They´re really getting the hang of it! Aren´t the letters below kinda cool?!

inspiration: AnniesRags

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

AnniesRags is one of my favorite Etsy-shops! She makes unique jewelry, pieced together by treasures gathered from around the world, joined with her own self-made beads. Whenever I wear her jewelry, I hum to myself from West Side Story: “I feel pretty!” 🙂

Manhattan skyline

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

A friend of mine renewed his kitchen. Above his stove he wanted a urban motif: the Manhatten skyline. I helped him in the process, finding a photo, having it printed and mounted onto the wall. Looks pretty cool, huh?! 🙂 (this is before he´s actually moved back into the room, so it´s a bit empty […]

Exhibition opening Austevoll

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Today was the opening of the autumn-exhibition. I have almost all of my art gathered on the second floor in this old country grocery-store. Here are some photos from the room. I have a variety of techniques here: oil-painting, acrylic painting, silkscreen printing, freestyle machine embroidery, mica-collage, mixed media collage, acrylic on plaster and digital […]

My first mica-picture. A mixed media piece with leather, metal, paper and seashells, in addition to the mica. Both natural and man-made mica. It´s about 14 x 30 cm.

gallery work

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

I´ve spent the day at Austevoll, bringing my artwork up to the gallery. I didn´t think I had all that many pictures with me, but when they were all up, it turned out to be 40 pictures all in all. Grouping them and hanging them on the walls… it takes longer than one would think, […]

the TOU tote bag

Monday, September 8th, 2014

Mølleparken Tau, where I now have my exhibition, is a former mill and brewery. When I first visited the place in January, I got an old paper bag, the kind they used to have flour in when I was a kid. Well, up until 20 years ago. Now others have taken over the flour-marked, and […]

TAU exhibition

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Today is the opening of my exhibition in the Mill-park at Tau, right outside Stavanger. The exhibition is placed in an old barn, where the cows used to be. Thick stone-walls add to the atmosphere. Despite the age of the building, it´s all newly refurbished and bright and quite lovely. I made space for the […]

A fun day filled with painting and making art for the new Eidesvik-ship. It´s not being Christened until November, but arting takes time!And today 15 kids in the Eidesvik-club joined me in making the days brighter for the people who will be working onboard. Most of these kids have parents working onboard on one of […]

Marquee letters!

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

For an upcoming musical we need marquee-letter-laps. And what better way to get them, than to have them made specially by young students, learning the trade of welding and electro-installation! It´s a win-win situation 🙂 This is the result of the first part  of the making: the welding. (Another thing I want to learn!) These […]
