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.

The 2019 Christmas ornaments

Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

If you have been following me for a while, you know that every Christmas I make one new Christmas tree ornament. (And that I swap with some of my artist-friends). Why a suitcase? I wanted the ornament to reflect my 2019, if possible. And a suitcase may or not be representative of that. In the […]

Advent 2019

Sunday, December 1st, 2019

Maybe you, just like me, really enjoy Christmas and want o make the most of this time of waiting – the advent. If you click on the picture above, it will take you to a post I wrote back in 2010-2011, where I basically aim to celebrate everyday, by noticing and appreciating what is around […]

Christmas ornaments 2018

Tuesday, January 1st, 2019

First: Happy new year! This year´s Christmas ornament is a small bird-house. I totally admit to cheating, using pre-made paper-houses, and decorating them with salvaged wool needle-point embroidery. I added details in neon-pink, since the colors of the embroidery were quite muted. Below you can see photos from the process. The knitted mini-mittens are in […]

Friday, November 30th, 2018

The Boys in the Christmas tree house, by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, adapted to stage by director Birgit Amalie Nilsen, had it´s  world premiere at Kilden Teater in Kristiansand.

Christmas sweater

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

The past 10 years I´ve spent December 23rd helping my sister in her store, wrapping presents. This year, she´s closed her shop, and we were talking about what we´d do this year. I suggested we should make our own Christmas sweaters, after all, we are creative people! 😉 It´s been SO incredibly busy the past […]

Christmas at the museum

Saturday, December 3rd, 2016

This weekend Sunnhordlan Museum are opening their doors, inviting to a pre-Christmas event. Exhibitions, activities and cafés… I was present during part of the opening hours at my embroidery exhibition. And to no surprise, the over-sized textile building blocks were once again an attraction among the children. I saw forts and towers, cottages and prisons […]

Dizzy days off

Monday, January 4th, 2016

My sister Astri and my very own tradition, is for me to help her wrap gifts in her store the day before Christmas. We´ve been doing this for a decade now. This is the last time however, as she will close down her store. (She´ll still have the web-shop). So now we are busy thinking […]
