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.

Welcome!

Monday, August 10th, 2015

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. […]

Rain on a hit summer´s day

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

“Rain on a hot summer´s day” is the title of this acrylic painting I made tonight. I had two friends over for a creative evening. I´ve said it before, I´ll say it again: it´s so nice to create with someone else! This is maybe an odd painting. I decided to combine a naturalistic  picture with […]

Super-Sunday

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

I took a double Sunday this weekend, just relaxing and spending some quality-time with my art-journal. That is to say, my old art-journal, that´s been following me the past four year finally got filled to the last pages, and I made a new one. The last two pages of my old journal. The details of […]

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 […]

A world of Artist Journal pages

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

I´ve known for a long time now, and am happy to finally share with you the great news! I am appearing in Dawn DeVries Sokol´s new book A World of Artist Journal Pages. I haven´t seen the book myself yet, as it doesn´t release until April 21st. Some of the pages featured will be from […]

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. […]
