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.

I´ve just had the best adventure! Talk about dream-come-true! I´ve made my very own glass! I mean, I´ve blown and shaped my own glass! That is just amazing! On the evening before our Master class-trip to Bergen, there was an introduction-workshop in glass-blowing at S12Galleri. Two hours, and only room for four people, which is […]

suspended hipsters

Wednesday, April 20th, 2016

Another hipster done. I found this 60s suspender-briefs at a flee-market years ago, and they´ve been lying around just waiting for me to put them to use. They are a bit to big for the mannequin, but hopefully you can see them all right.

How to make your very own hipster-knicker: You take one pair of vintage suspender-knickers from the late 60s. You find a couple of portrait-photos of some cool hipsters, and draw them onto the water-souble-fabric. Sew. A lot. Freestyle machine embroidery. In a slightly darker color than the vintage fabric. After the algaenat is gone, you´re left […]

Stril Mar

Thursday, March 10th, 2016

Simon Møkster Shipping newest offshore vessel just arrived to Norway from the building site in Spain. I made the art for her sister-ship, Stril Luna. And I am so proud to having been asked back to decorate her “twin”. So let me introduce you to Still Mar: She´s looking a bit intimidating on that dry-dock, […]

International Women´s day

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

March 8th is the International Women´s day. This day is celebrated in our neighbor-municipaly, with a demonstration-martch, an art-exhibition and an evening of talks and appeals. Very interesting! I am ashamed to say that at my ripe age, it´s the first time I´ve attended an event like this. (It was about time!) But I am […]

the wedding present

Tuesday, February 16th, 2016

This is a commissioned picture from a newly wed couple. Actually it was a gift from their friends, but they got to choose the elements in the picture themselves. Which is why Brooklyn bridge all of a sudden is on the other side of the Atlantic, on the west-coast of Norway It´s the fun part […]

February´s flying by

Monday, February 15th, 2016

I´ve a great idea: why don´t we swap February for another month of summer. Squeeze it in between June and July. We can call it Jusy! (Or something) However, days seem to going by at double speed, and I´m not getting all done that I should. So it may have to wait until next year. Ok. […]

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 […]
