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.

The Sound of Music

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Today my creative outlet has been singing! I´ve been part of the all-female choir of nuns(!) backing Maria Arredondo and Bjørn Skagestad in their tour of The Sound of Music. The Sound of Music is celebrating it´s 50 year anniversary this year, and it is probably the most well-known musical in the world. Even if […]

power-tooling

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

Power-tooling is fun! I think that´s why some old-fashioned men insist it´s difficult and hard work, (read: not suited for women.) They simply want to have all the fun for themselves Well, it´s not difficult, and it´s not even particularly heavy. What it is, is dusty! Incredibly dusty! Getting ready for a new skill to be learned: […]

GREASE – ON AIR

Thursday, January 29th, 2015

Tonight´s the night! The grand opening of GREASE! A couple of photos from the rehearsals below. This is backstage right now: the girls are in make-up/hair-styling. In about 10 minutes it´s the boys´ turn. This “ON AIR” sign is one of the last props made. In co-operation with the light-designer. I found a metal cookie-box […]

Viking Neptun by night

Saturday, January 17th, 2015

We interrupt these backstage theatre reports with a completely different matter. I´m in Ulsteinvik a couple of days to hang a truck-load of pictures. Both my own art, two colleagues art and children´s art. The Christening isn´t until the end of February, but the ship will be at sea until right before, so the decorations […]

A new year is here, and I want to take time to celebrate some of my favorite memories from the year that´s gone. Here are some of my highlights: January: PERPLEKS, costume-design for Perpleks at Rogaland Teater. In June, it wins Hedda for best show! February: Optiship, reception art for a new shipping company. March: The biggest […]

Hardanger

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Hardanger is famous for two things. It´s fjord and it´s embroidery. The fjord is very scenic, and is frequently visited by large cruise-ships. The embroidery has gotten it´s international name for their own version of white-work-embroidery, used in their bunads. It´s also used in interior textiles, such as table-cloths. This weekend I am once again […]

The shamer´s daughter

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Tonight was the opeing night of The Shamer´s Daugther at HSH, the teacher´s college. The Danish author Lene Kaaberbøl´s fantasy-novel was the inspiration for this year´s “write-an-opera”-project. So welcome to Dunark, a mediaeval county, and Drakan´s dreaded rule. Drakan´s dungeon houses a courtyard filled with dragons! You can almost see the dragon here behind the […]

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 […]
