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

Ivar Aasen

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

My very first platform! I am so excited to share with you the news: today I have been onboard a oil-platform, more precisely the sleeping quarters of a new platform. And I left empty-handed 😉 It may seem small in the picture above, but it isn´t at all. 16 floors and about 70 meters above […]

drying in the rain

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

The “hesje” is drying, even when rain is pouring down. That´s the beauty of this technique of hay-making. The rain falls on the top and slides down the sides, leaving all the hay on the inside dry. A little bit of wind helps too. Yesterday we were interviewed by the regional radio. You can listen […]

Pippi-poster

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Made this for the Pippi (Longstocking) festival.

Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe (The Picnic)

Monday, June 27th, 2016

The title is inspired by the French painter Manet, and his painting of four friends having a picnic in the woods. No woods here, but the tranquility is the same. Lying on the gras with the hay-“fence” around you. The sweet smell of drying grass. Looking up, two sea-eagles are floating by high above. Saturday we […]

Guerrillla land-art, farmer-style

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Today we´ve made some seriously large art! Outdoor, we made a hay-piles, in the traditional, Norwegian style called “hesje”. Between fence-rods you suspend rows of wire, and on each wire you hang fresh grass to dry. I´ve been thinking of this for a couple of years now, and this year everything came into place. On […]

the new bags

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

The 2016-collection of tote-bags are finally here! Two new designs this year. The fabric came already a month ago, but I haven´t had the time to sew them until now. (Post-exam-sewing!) The golden bag is from the islands out west, with a viking-ship sailing by. Below os the text, as usual from my 1000-islands-poem: Where the […]

The exam-exhibition

Saturday, June 11th, 2016

The final exam of the year was an exhibition made with the springs assignments. Martha is here mounting her photo-series “Absence of life”. Laila and Sarah are figuring out where to put the art. In addition to the four of us in the Arts and crafts-master class, 34 other students exhibit some of their things […]

The silk-rabbit vest

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

The vest is made with a big rabbit-fur vest I bought at a charity-shop. It smelled like an ashtray, so I put a lot of effort into removing the stench. First, I tried my ozone-cabinet, without any effect (Which is the first time!) Then I had it on a hanger in a dry-cleaner plastic bag, […]

Leather belt

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

My new red leather belt! Sewn from a piece of leather I got at a charity-shop. I found inspiration on Pinterest and made a pattern that resembled the original. It is shaped so that it glides over itself, and is therefor adjustable to several sizes. It ties around itself, and  into a buckle in the […]

Silk belt

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

My green belt is sewn in silk brocade, a piece I bought when I was in China years ago. The color is more like in the last photo, a lovely olive green. I wish I could tell you that I made a pattern for this, but I just winged it as I went along. The inside […]
