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.

This weekend is the big birdhouse-day! The art-guerilia is had a creative family-get-together on Saturday where we´ll all make birdhouses. Sunday, we´ll take a walk in nature and hang them all up, inviting the birds to move in.


This is my birdhouse. My Dad built it for me (Times are so busy!) and I decorated it. I decided to use petit-point embroidery. Sewn with woolen thread, I have heaps of these old embroidered crafts lying around, waiting for me to get to work on my next big creative adventure. Just need to get some work done first. Above it is still work in progress. Using wood-glue, I stuck down the textiles and pinned them in place until it was all dry.


Open day at the culture house. I think there must have been 60-70 people there. We ran out of material, and had to get more.


Such a good thing to see, generations building something together. The parents helped, and the children got to hammer the houses together, and paint of course!


Some of the finished inspirational houses.


This boy worked so concentrated with his painting, he was just fascinating to watch 🙂


A few of the finished houses, airing for the paint to dry before they are hung in the trees by the tour-trail in Stongervåg.

Now even the birds have designer homes! 😉
