Welcome to my site! I work as a costume-designer, an artist, and a teacher, 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.

Time for the annual Falturiltu-project at HSH (the teacher´s college). The book the arts and crafts and music-students are working with this year is “Tonje Glimmerdal”. She´s a crazy-cool-strong-willed girl in a small winter-village. The students make the music for the opera, write the lyrics, make the set, the costumes, do all the PR, basically […]

Embroidery workshop

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

What a great day! A whole day with 10 arts and crafts-collegues! I held a practical and inspirational workshop for FOS (Forum for Oppvekst i Sunnhordland) embroidery. Both hand- and freestyle machine embroidery. While we were hand-embroidering it was quiet enough for us to discuss the daily challenges of the trade. 5 schools were represented. […]

Photo at school

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

A photo-workshop at school! And I got to do 2 first-timers! 3, come to think of it. First, taking photos with a home-made pin-hole camera. Using an old tin-can, with a tiny hole drilled through the side of it. Adding a lid of a black plastic and aluminum-foil, and exposing the photo-paper placed inside to […]

Building boats with kids

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Bømlo Art group just had it´s annual family-day at the culture-house (which just celebrated it´s 10th anniversary this weekend) This year we decided to build boats, and take them for a “swim” at the beach the next day. Martha is in charge, sawing wooden pieces for the kids, who use a hammer to nail it […]

Melting stuff is fun! So much fun. And metal But melting metal is especially fun! Last Friday, this is what we learned at school. Using a homemade form, filling it with fine sand, mixed with a bit of oil, we pressed hard objects into the sand, leaving an imprint. Carefully carving a canal for the melted […]

Making a new old world

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Building a world, one stage at a time…   The pictures above start Sunday evening and end Tuesday evening. Below is the finished set, just waiting to be played with by the actors! And I cannot say this loud enough: I couldn´t have done it without my fantastic building-team: Joakim, John Olav, Erling and my […]

HSD – café og brasserie

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Thursday October 8th was the grand opening of the brand new shopping-centre in Bømlo. Hundreds and hundreds of people where lined up outside when the doors opened at noon. Why am I telling you about this? In addition to being an important, local place of employment, which I salute, I had the great honor of […]

The painting gang

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

No less than 12 volunteers came to paint the set today! 3 hours and lots of busy activity, and we got SO much done! Not nearly finished, but it´s the closed we´ve ever been 😉 Seriously. Volunteer work is a great thing. Lots of people working and talking, laughing and having fun. It´s quite social, […]

cozying the café

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Biggest event today was hanging up all the pictures in the café in the new shopping mall that opens in Bømlo in 3 days. It takes some time to drill into cement… good thing I had help! I´ll show you all the pictures on Thursday, when the centre opens. What else? The carpenters mounted the […]

On an ordinary Sunday
