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.

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 […]

Rain on a hit summer´s day

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

“Rain on a hot summer´s day” is the title of this acrylic painting I made tonight. I had two friends over for a creative evening. I´ve said it before, I´ll say it again: it´s so nice to create with someone else! This is maybe an odd painting. I decided to combine a naturalistic  picture with […]

Friday, July 17th, 2015

Cold winter

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

It seems like a strange title, now well into June, doesn´t it? I don´t know if it´s global warming or what it is, but the past decade or so, the weather has been increasingly strange. This year has hardly had any winter, I can´t remember if there has been snow at all (where I live, […]

This seasons tote-bags

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Two new tote-bags are here! Both sewn in heavy cotton fabric, and the print is of my art. The government has induced a fee on plastic bags here, so using textile tote-bags when we go shopping is good for both the environment and the wallet. The green bag has it´s main motif from Hespriholmen, a […]

The Fearless Art-festival

Sunday, May 31st, 2015

I´ve spent the weekend in Voss, at the Fearless Art-festival. Made in cooperation with the annual national meeting for visual art groups/organizations in Norway. Four of us came up from Bømlo Art group, and during the three days we´ve had some interesting discussions about what provokes us (this was the underlying theme of the festival), […]

Coastal culture

Thursday, May 28th, 2015

It´s almost time for a new exhibition! Time i flying, and I am making some new pictures for the summer-exhibition at Bekkjarvik Gallery. It opens June 7th. Here is one of them, simply a warm collage inspired by our coastal culture. Looking at it, it gives me fond memories of favorite summer days by the […]
