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.

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 […]

Cold winter

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

It seems like a strange title, now well into June, doesn´t it? I don´t know if it´s global warming or what it is, but the past decade or so, the weather has been increasingly strange. This year has hardly had any winter, I can´t remember if there has been snow at all (where I live, […]

This seasons tote-bags

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Two new tote-bags are here! Both sewn in heavy cotton fabric, and the print is of my art. The government has induced a fee on plastic bags here, so using textile tote-bags when we go shopping is good for both the environment and the wallet. The green bag has it´s main motif from Hespriholmen, a […]

The Fearless Art-festival

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

I´ve spent the weekend in Voss, at the Fearless Art-festival. Made in cooperation with the annual national meeting for visual art groups/organizations in Norway. Four of us came up from Bømlo Art group, and during the three days we´ve had some interesting discussions about what provokes us (this was the underlying theme of the festival), […]

Coastal culture

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

It´s almost time for a new exhibition! Time i flying, and I am making some new pictures for the summer-exhibition at Bekkjarvik Gallery. It opens June 7th. Here is one of them, simply a warm collage inspired by our coastal culture. Looking at it, it gives me fond memories of favorite summer days by the […]

Skandi Africa is the newest and biggest offshore-vessel in DOF. It´s 33 meters wide and 130 meters long! (Thats´108 feet wide and 426 feet long). It is currently in the Netherlands, where a giant crane and an even bigger tower is being mounted. The crane alone can lift 900 tons! It is huge, this ship! […]

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

Congratulations to Eidesvik! Today was the name-giving ceremony of Viking Neptun, Eidesvik´s newest and biggest and most beautiful and modern ship! I was very honored to be selected to help decorate this ship. The architects have done a great job here, I was even invited along to a creative meeting with them and the furniture-supplier […]
