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.

Veidekke at the Heathhouse

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

Back in Haugesund, I finally had the time to stop by the Health house, and have a look at my two new pieces there. On behalf of the constructor, I was asked to make art as a gift from them to the owners, to be placed in the house. I made these two pictures from […]

A window towards tomorrow

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

A new year, new hopes and wishes. What will 2016 bring? Like most other years, both good and bad. I need to remember that bad things that happen in the world doesn´t mean that all is bad, and that I can do much in my own little world and for the people around me, by […]

Skandi Acu

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

DOF s newest multipurpose-ship is almost ready for the seven seas! And just before Christmas I was onboard to decorate the mess and all the cabins onboard. This is another HUGE ship (it´s sister won the Ship of the year-award 2015 in Norway), and it will be based out of Brazil. Acu I believe is a […]

Freestyle machine embroidered drawing

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

(Oh no, now I see a spelling mistake!) This is the first in my brand new series of How-To books. Actually it´s a free fantasy type of log-book for my drawing-exam. I chose to draw with a sewing thread via a sewing machine. So of course the whole book had to be textile. I wanted […]

A calm day at sea

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

I am calm. Outside there´s wind and rain. My calendar is filled with deadlines. I am calm. Luckily I´ve trained myself to concentrate on one task at a time. I´ve delivered two written semester-exams, and sent off several dozens of  pictures to the printers today. I could also tell you about all the things I haven´t […]

Winter starry sky

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

I did actually see stars the other day… but ´tis the season of rain, so that´s pretty much the deal. ( I don´t mind) Exam due-dates are closing in, and you´d think I´d spend every available moment studying. I´m not. This whole weekend I´ve been making art. I have a new ship to decorate just […]

HSD – café og brasserie

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Thursday October 8th was the grand opening of the brand new shopping-centre in Bømlo. Hundreds and hundreds of people where lined up outside when the doors opened at noon. Why am I telling you about this? In addition to being an important, local place of employment, which I salute, I had the great honor of […]

cozying the café

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Biggest event today was hanging up all the pictures in the café in the new shopping mall that opens in Bømlo in 3 days. It takes some time to drill into cement… good thing I had help! I´ll show you all the pictures on Thursday, when the centre opens. What else? The carpenters mounted the […]

On an ordinary Sunday

Monday, October 5th, 2015

… I have breakfast with my best friend visiting from Svalbard (celebrating my birthday last night), plan an outing to Harry Potter world in London with my nephew, have lunch with my family, glue up a 14 meter long wallpaper in a shopping mall (I´ll tell you more about this later), dinner at a pizza-restaurant again […]

The Haugesund Health house

Monday, October 5th, 2015

Welcome to the new Health House in Haugesund (Helsehuset). It´s an oasis of service-providers in the centre of town. A big food-store, a post-office, an optician, a physiotherapy-centre, a training-centre, a private hospital and 21 apartments for the elderly. Over 150 people working here, and around 2500 visitor every day! I was so honored when I […]
