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.

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 […]

The Boys in the Christmas tree house

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. I had the costume-design for this wonderful, imaginative, absurd and silly show. With an abundance of quirky characters, there was preferably no limit to our […]

Preparations

Currently I am working on my upcoming exhibition. In March, Ida Fugli, Sara Birgitte Øfsti and I will be responsible for the Women´s day exhibition in Stord Kunstlag. We´ve named the exhibition “Undress my Ego” and working with our own ambivalent relationship towards clothes. Below is one of my pieces, which I finished today. It´s […]

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 […]

The anual paint-day with my favorite kids

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

It´s become a dear tradition: inviting the kids over for a Christmas-gift-workshop. They all make one painting each, a present for their Dads. Elisabeth is now almost 2, and enjoyed it so much. When the other kids were done with their paintings, and started to paint their hands, so did she. And when she was […]

Cozy & lazy

Sunday, December 6th, 2015

A long, lazy and cosy weekend, spent knitting Christmas gifts. There´s a storm outside. I always feels extra lucky to be inside a warm house, with a cup of tea and candles (it is 2nd Sunday of advent after all). I really enjoy making gifts for others, and I think that today, people appreciate handmade […]
