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.

Stril Luna

Friday, July 25th, 2014

Stril Luna is the name of Simon Møkster Shipping´s new offshore vessel. It´s a beautiful supply-ship, about 80 meters long, with accommodation for about 25 people. I am very honored and happy to deliver the artwork for this ship. The ship was Christened a month ago, but is still not finished for another couple of […]

Today is the Christening of a new fishing vessel, and it´s name will be Østervind which means Eastern-wind. This picture was given as a gift to the ship from one of their suppliers. “Slåtterøy fyr”(/ Slåtterøy lighthouse) 40×60 cm

Øyfjord and Øysund

Bømlo brønnbåtservice are Christening two new ships today: Øyfjord and Øysund, and two of their suppliers wanted to give them gifts on the big day.

Skandi Iceman video presentation

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

If you´ve ever wondered about these ships that I keep telling you about. Click on the video below with a presentation of Skandi Iceman. It gives a better impression than I ever could, of exactly how awesome these great vessels are! Skandi Iceman is owned by DOF, the world´s largest offshore shipping company.  I am […]

Normand Vision

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014

“In the middle of a longing/ Longing home, longing away” 35×70 cm Today is the Christening of Normand Vision, Solstad Shipping´s newest ship in their fleet. Wärtsila Norway AS  delivered the engine solution to the ship. And as a gift on the big day, they chose to give the shipping company this picture. It is from […]


Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

A new big commission is soon on it´s way out of the door. But first, varnishing, drying and framing the pictures… Not to mention the packing process. Shipping them requires extra attention on the packing. It seems dull, but a lot more time goes into this part of the process than you´d think. So not all […]

My Grandparents

Saturday, June 28th, 2014

This is my Grandparents on my mother´s side. My Granddad died half a year before I was born, so I obviously don´t know him. But my Grandmother was one of my absolute favorite people! She died about eight years ago, but would have been 100 years in 3 days. So to celebrate her memory, the […]

More Juanita

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

“I spy with my little eye”, 40×50 cm I just learned that there was another picture onboard Juanita that I made! It was also a gift, this time from Wärtsila Norway AS, the company who delivered the engine system. They bought it from a gallery, that´s why I didn´t know until afterwards.

Kikki´s picture

Friday, June 13th, 2014

My latest commissioned family picture. A composition including lots of details from their summer-house and their family. A truly wonderful family, might I add! I spent a whole day with them, celebrating a birthday. The bright yellow is a low-growing moss, and it´s not enhanced, it really is that bright in real life. The size […]

Juanita is Ugland Offshore´s new vessel, and this picture is a gift from Juanita´s Godmother to the shipping company. This is the first picture I have onboard an Ugland ship and I am very honored for this commission. My hope and wish is for safe journeys for all those who work and live onboard! “Green Sea, Golden […]
