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.

Sri Lanka travel journal

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

I´m home! After 10 wonderfully relaxing days, I´m back to my normal, sometimes-crazy-busy days. One of my favorite things to come home to, was a big package in the mail from Dawn Sokol. A big book inside, with a handwritten bookmark, guiding me to my page 😀 Author´s note to me (hi-hi..) I am not […]

cocktail umbrella lamp shade

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

For the Salmon Conveyor set I made three cocktail-umbrella lampshades for the party-scene. Here is a little DIY-guide, so you cn make your very own party-lamp. You need a rice-paper lampshade (they have affordable ones at IKEA), about 250 cocktail umbrellas for a shade with 50 cm in diameter. A hot glue-gun with plenty of […]

Caroline Erigine Weidel Rasmussen

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

This is Caroline Erigine, the wife of a former lighthouse-keeper Rasmussen at Bovbjerg. She had a parrot that could talk. (For real, I´m not making it up!) Of course, it´s impossible not to be intrigued by a lady like this.   So I added some color to her serious black & white portrait, and the […]

painting with the coolest kids

Monday, September 29th, 2014

Painting with my niece and nephew, who just happens to be two of the coolest kids I know! It looked so much fun, that when I got back home, I started my own painting-project: my new calendar-book. This time a little different again. Making all the pages separately first, then sewing them together, first in […]

printing workshop

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

One of the fun projects that will go throughout the year, is visiting a arts and crafts class at one of the local schools. It will only be a short visit in each of the 4 groups during the year, where I show and tell a bit about printing. I notice that I am used […]

The idea-process illustrated

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Task at hand: Make a bird-house. Decorate it. Be creative.  The bird-house will be part of an art-project, but it will be placed in the woods and inhabited by real birds. Everyone in the art-gurilia-group is making one each. To be honest: I asked my Dad to build the birdhouse for me. He´s got more tools. […]

stamping

Tuesday, August 12th, 2014

The evening I´ve been helping a neighbor to make her own stamp. She´s a teacher, and together we´ll teach her class, but first she wanted to make her own. She choose a Japanese twin-bird motif, and it came out quite beautiful I think! Very elegant, The process from paper-copy via stamp to finished print. And […]

The girly-girl gang

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

More girly-girls in the making. They might be wearing autumn-colors, but there´s something a bit summer-ish about them. These will probably go on Etsy  soon.

New girly-girl in the making

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Digging into my smallest scraps of fabrics; silks, laces, organzas, feathers and leathers… Looking at the back, you can see some of all the lines sewn to hold it all together: And here she is! Looking a bit majestic in that hat, I think. Actually, I´m not sure if it is a “she” or a […]
