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.

birdhouses

Sunday, October 12th, 2014

This weekend is the big birdhouse-day! The art-guerilia is had a creative family-get-together on Saturday where we´ll all make birdhouses. Sunday, we´ll take a walk in nature and hang them all up, inviting the birds to move in. This is my birdhouse. My Dad built it for me (Times are so busy!) and I decorated […]

felt

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

I visited my friend Nina the other day. She´s a professional felt-maker, and has published several books on the subject. She makes incredible and colorful landscapes in the her felted work. Patterns and colors melting into each other. NinaFiltmaker is her web-site. I really like these loose neck-capes. Like a big necklace, but warm Yet […]

new homes

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

Earlier this week I went back to Tau to take down the exhibition that´s´´been there the past month. But not all the pictures are coming back home with me. Here are some of them. “You can´t see the forrest for the trees”, (ca 15×20+passepartou and frame cm), Acrylic paint on watercolor paper and oxidized brass. The lady […]

Naalebinding

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

A new workshop at the textile culture course, and another technique I have never tried before. Nålebinding is an old thread-binding technique, which the vikings used. So this is one of the original techniques, long before crochet and knitting. Knitting, which is popular today, didn´t become a common knowledge/skill until the 17th century. This is what […]

printing workshop

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

One of the fun projects that will go throughout the year, is visiting a arts and crafts class at one of the local schools. It will only be a short visit in each of the 4 groups during the year, where I show and tell a bit about printing. I notice that I am used […]

Familylife exhibition in Aalesund

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

The Family-life exhibition opened at Sunnmøre Museum in Ålesund September 14th. Tone Anda, the museum-curator, has made the most wonderful display! By adding tables filled with everyday things from the 50s and 60s, it´s a trip down memory-lane. It adds so much to the pictures, when they are placed into a whole of cultural history! […]

The idea-process illustrated

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

Task at hand: Make a bird-house. Decorate it. Be creative.  The bird-house will be part of an art-project, but it will be placed in the woods and inhabited by real birds. Everyone in the art-gurilia-group is making one each. To be honest: I asked my Dad to build the birdhouse for me. He´s got more tools. […]

Pippi-weekend

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

This has been my weekend: Unpacking a truckload (literary) of costumes and props for Pippi Longstocking. The show will premiere November 1st, and I´m helping out with the costumes. So this weekend, we´ve been trying on the rented costumes, trying to find something that fits for all the young actors.

Techical building and art

Saturday, September 20th, 2014

Bremnes Seashore has built a new building for the technical department. We´ve used some of the old photographs from their archive to decorate the stairwell. So many great portraits here of people at work. They all seem to really like their workplace. And a couple of yummy salmon dishes decorate the meeting room.

National treasures – the buildings

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

The last in the National treasures-series is about buildings. Mind you, these are only a couple I´ve seen in the past weeks, there are tons more of interesting places and spaces.  Halsnøy Convent is from way back in the 11th century, I think. None of the buildings have survived completely, but there are cellars. And […]
