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.

Today is the opening of my exhibition in the Mill-park at Tau, right outside Stavanger. The exhibition is placed in an old barn, where the cows used to be. Thick stone-walls add to the atmosphere.
