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.

Inside the calendar-book

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

I said in the last post that I wanted to add color to my days. The base-color is is just that: a base. After the book is bound, I start adding all the collage, mainly around the edges, before stamping the dates on. A lot of the collage-material comes from Teesha and Tracy Moores´s Artstronauts-club, […]

Art-journal entries

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

  My art-journal is at times lonely, not getting much attention. But I did make a few entries this over the past weeks. The two eyes are practices with color-combination and brush-strokes. This page is a solid annoyance and a quite despair of how much we KNOW and yet how little we DO about climate change. […]

Jessica and Cole´s wedding

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

Happy occasions! Jessica and her Cole are getting married and I am invited to the wedding! Visiting my American family, for such a beautiful wedding, so many lovely people. The whole week went into preparations, as Michelle and her family wanted to make it personal. I tried to help, and made lots of flag-garlands for […]

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

Friday, March 17th, 2017

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 […]
