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.

My little world

Monday, July 13th, 2020

Sometimes the news brings so much chaos. It´s a big world out there, and there is so much going on, sometimes it´s too much to take it all in. Wars, corruption, selfish people in the time of a pandemic, climate change, elephants dying and  birds disappearing mysteriously… I recognize the need to stay aware and […]

The magical, mystical, the weird and wonderful world of books!

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

A good book is a treasure. It can take you deep inside yourself, or far, far away. To other other worlds, to other cultures, to other minds. It can broaden your horizon and it can broaden your mind, your imagination, your talents, in addition to your knowledge. It can make you forget yourself, forget time […]

Family-life in the lighthouses in Sør-Trøndelag

Wednesday, November 27th, 2019

My family-life at the Light-house exhibition visited Kystmuseet (The Coastal Museum) in Sør-Trøndelag Museum this fall. Unfortunately I wasn´t able to travel and see it myself, but the museum kindly shared some photos of the exhibition with me.

Book illustration

Monday, November 25th, 2019

This fall one of my dreams came through, when I was asked to illustrate a book! To be precise it is a sheet-music book with soft covers, but it is published and it is a big deal to me! 😀 My dear friend Joakim Vikanes has arranged all the music in and edited the book. […]

Portable metal-brush or embroidered x-ray

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

I have what looks like a portable paint-brush inside my right arm. It´s not. It´s made of metal. And the brushy-part is metal screws. No big deal. I broke my wrist. Slightly bigger deal, it´s my right arm. As an artist, my right arm is rather valuable to me. But again, no big deal. I […]

Summer

Monday, May 20th, 2019

“The summer-warmth on newly baked naked rock faces…” 80×120 cm This is the picture that will adorn one of the walls at the new NAV in Bømlo (public social office). They just moved into a new location, and this was the commissioned gift from the builders. I am so honoured that people still think of […]

Bremnes Ungdomsskule

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

Bremens has built a new middle-high school. I was asked to help design frosted window-foils, to shield the students and teachers from the traffic in the hallways outside the classrooms. Every one of the 21 classrooms has different names, all places in the Bømlo municipality. So each window has a different design. Here are a […]

All three pictures are based on old photographs, kindly provided by the Etne Historical Group (Etne Historielag), the two first are form Etne, the last one is from Kyrping. I really […]
