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.

Open day at the workshop

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Saturday, we invited the public to an open house at the workshop. It was a social event, and lots of people stopped by. Everyone that came, had to drill a screw into the fish, as a symbolic participation and ownership in the project. Old and young! The kids also had the opportunity to make their […]

ARTing journal 7

The last pages in this round. Google-image of Native American indian used as inspiration. And Pinterest-inspired images of eye and man. And some free pages to paint! 🙂

ARTing journal 6

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Yet a few ARTing journal-pages. The angry men are freestyle machine-embroidered and is a sample made for a workshop. Pinterest-inspired landscapes, focusing on clouds and abstract landscapes. Bottom girl with red hair is an experiment seeing how many colors I can get by just mixing two colors: read and green. (Made years ago, and recycled […]

ARTing journal 4

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

And then some more… it´s all about the ARTing journal here… Pinterest-inspired paintings and experiments with acrylic paints. The first two, I think what is their connection? Does she live here? Is this the place she dreams of? Is it a place she´s never been, but will see some time in the future?? The second […]

ARTing journal 3

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Still more ARTing journal-pages. Trying out different techniques and tools. Pencil vs paint, naturalistic vs abstract, minimalist vs maximalist and so on. (The blank page isn´t blank, it´s just really hard to see what´s on there)

ARTing journal 2

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Continuing yesterday´s sharing of ARTing journal-pages. “A line is a dot that went for a walk”. The chimp and the bird is inspired by Pinterest. The eco-chic is probably more with a focus on my studies in eco-design. Mind you this not only looks nothing like me, it doesn´t look anything like the inner me either […]

ARTing journal 1

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

My days are filled with less creative activities, as I am working on my research. Lots of reading, writing and trying to understand. But just so you won´t think I´ve completely disappeared from the surface of the earth, you are welcome to follow me on Instagram, where I try to post something everyday… Or you […]

ARTing in Portland

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

I´ve already been home for a couple of weeks, but wanted to share some great days in Portland with you. Some of my favorite ARTing-friends were gathered at Michelle´s studio above her office for a whole day of brownies, painting, talking and creating and just plain old having fun! Karla, Elizabeth, Michelle, Lulu, Janet, Deirdra, […]

A World of glass and sew on

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

I went to experience Terje Isungset and Arve Henriksen´s magical concert last night: World of glass. Without a doubt, one of this years absolute esthetical highlights! All the instruments were made of glass by Estonian glassblowers. The music is so visual! Not only all the instruments, bathed in a cold blue light, but the music itself. […]

Welcome!

I am trying to explore different options, different techniques and different expressions before the big embroidery exhibition next summer. One thing that´s been quite common around here, a generation or two ago, are these embroidered wall-hangings. Some of them have a saying from the Bible, and other, like this one, welcomes you into the home. […]
