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 magical, mystical, the weird and wonderful world of books!

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

A good book is a treasure. It can take you deep inside yourself, or far, far away. To other other worlds, to other cultures, to other minds. It can broaden your horizon and it can broaden your mind, your imagination, your talents, in addition to your knowledge. It can make you forget yourself, forget time […]

Arting in the time of Covid-19

Sunday, April 12th, 2020

These are strange times! Over 40% of the world´s population is now under quarantine or restrictions related to the Corona-pandemic. Myself, I am in voluntary lock-down, staying at home, only shopping for necessities. This must be the biggest social experiment of all times, at least in peace-time, and we have no idea where we will […]

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 […]

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)
