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 wonderful, colorful Teesha Moore is once again arranging ARTFEST in Port Townsend. If you ever need inspiration on a rainy day, have a look at her site! Or her blog!

I attended ARTFEST last year, and had such an interesting and fun time, meeting so many wonderful people, I really wanted to go back. What I learned in the workshops have really come in handt this past year too, I´ve used several of the techniques in my art this year. Especially what I learned from Misty Mawn and L. K. Ludwig

So it is no wonder that I want to go back!

This year I will be attending Jesse Reno´s class “Free to Create”. He was recommended by friends, and as I most of the time feel very constricted in what I make (believe it or not), I thought this might be good. I´m hoping. It´s probably an either-or and not an inbetween-thing.

I´ll also attend Michael DeMeng´s class “Mad Masks” This is perfect for the costume designer in me! I love to explore new techniques, and especially if I can use them in my work. It looks kind of weird, but in a good way 🙂

The third class I´m taking is Patricia Seggebrugge´s class i Encaustic Journaling. Last year, walking through one gallery after another in Seattle, I noticed some pictures I thought were just so beautiful, and they were all in this technique, and now I´m gonna learn it! Yay!

    Oh how I wish I was going back to Artfest this year and taking all the same classes as you dear Janne. I’m looking forward to your posts about your adventures when you get back.
