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.

Friday, February 7th, 2020

Today is the opening night of The Full Monty (I blanke messingen) with Kompani Andersen. A small group of amateur-theatre-enthusiasts decided to stage the musical about the unemployed Sheffield-workers who put on a strip-show to earn some fast cash. Not unexpectedly, they discover that one thing is to undress, another thing is to do it […]

The Prague Quadrennial

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

I first heard of the Prague Quadrennial a couple of decades ago, my baby-sister was there when she studied costume-design, but I had never been. This year, I decided it was time! It was a wonderment of lectures, exhibitions, national pavilions, workshops, talks …. And sustainability was clearly becoming a topic which more and more […]

One Ocean

Mowgli

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Mowgli, or the Jungle-book, as it called in Norwegian, is Haugesund teatre´s big family-show this spring. I am in charge of props, and some of the really fun things have to be made by hand. Like the fishing rod and the hand-held fishing-net. I had a trip into the jungle in my back-yard and got […]

Creative meeting

2018 promises to be both busy and fun. The first creative meeting at Kilden Teater, where I am the costume-designer for “The boys in the Christmas-tree-hut” (loosely translated). It´s a family-show and the premiere is not until November. But you know how you can tell it´s going to be a great production, when the whole […]

Backstage life

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Today I´m sharing a few photos from my Spindelmaker Instagram-account, showing what the the theatre looks like when you´re working backstage. Personally I have several functions in Haugesund Teater´s staging of Jesus Christ Superstar. I´m the props-manager, the dresser and part of the technical stage-crew. What the audience sees is the magic that happens on […]

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 […]
