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.

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 […]

ARTing in Portland

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

I´ve already been home for a couple of weeks, but wanted to share some great days in Portland with you. Some of my favorite ARTing-friends were gathered at Michelle´s studio above her office for a whole day of brownies, painting, talking and creating and just plain old having fun! Karla, Elizabeth, Michelle, Lulu, Janet, Deirdra, […]

A World of glass and sew on

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

I went to experience Terje Isungset and Arve Henriksen´s magical concert last night: World of glass. Without a doubt, one of this years absolute esthetical highlights! All the instruments were made of glass by Estonian glassblowers. The music is so visual! Not only all the instruments, bathed in a cold blue light, but the music itself. […]

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 […]
