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.

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 […]

book covers

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

A new year, a new book. A new book, new covers. Since I make my books like an accordion, I need two covers, that way there is no front or back, just two fronts. I wanted to make something slightly different this time, combining freestyle sewing and painting. I made a girl dressed up with […]

journal girls

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

I don´t often paint in my art-journal.

The first girl I´m painting with a quite thick brush and […]

paint your days bright

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Don´t these colors just make you happy? I was thrilled when I found that my local paint-shop finally could make really bright-colored interior paints! I´ve already bought two of the colors for upcoming projects, but look at the rainbow! How can one limit oneself to only two colors?!? My friend Shelly Massey hasn´t! She´s the […]

fruits

And  talking of painting wooden things…: Here´s what Nina and I did the night before getting started on all her cabinets. I had a couple of wooden serving plates, found at a charity shop, that I think was a little outdated and dreary in the colors. The wood itself is a good quality balsa. (These […]

Shades of summer

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

I can´t NOT work, even though it´s Sunday, so why not do something absolutely, positively fun: paint! With a summer palette, I´ve made backgrounds both on paper for collages and a couple of pages in my art-journal. The colors are so yummy, I just want to continue working with them, painting, collaging, adding text, thoughts, […]
