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.

summer and such

Monday, July 6th, 2015

I didn´t think I was taking a summer-break from the blog, but it seems it´s just happened anyway. I´ve been working on Peter Pan. There is a lot of planning to do. Sketching and thinking and calculating. And of course the occational alligator to tend to 😉 I got this one via eBay, and he […]

Love and marriage

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

My baby sister got married this weekend! And my blog-absence is mainly because of her, the preparations, and all the family-gatherings. It´s been so much fun! photo: Jane Alfredsen It was such a lovely wedding. My baby-sister happens to be my next-door neighbor, and I am so happy about that! Her husband is already like […]

Sri Lanka – first impressions

Friday, May 8th, 2015

Summer came early this year! I´m in Sri Lanka with my dear friend Anne. We arrived yesterday, so I only have a couple of random impressions to share with you. All I can say is so far I really like this country! The man above is hand-embroidered, and I actually saw him in Oslo, before […]

The Peace Festival

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

The students at Bømlo Folk High School arrange a Peace-festival every year. This is the 19th year, and this year´s theme is “Refugees”.   Bømlo Folk High School is the school I thought at for 13 years, so naturally it´s close to my heart. I have so many wonderful memories from this place, moments with […]

Yo-ho, yo-ho, a sailor´s life for me!

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Guess where I am?! I´ll give you a clue: it´s one of the biggest ports in the world! I´ll give you another clue: that´s my shoes in the picture. And 17 meters below me there is water. I´ll tell you tomorrow 😉

cocktail umbrella lamp shade

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

For the Salmon Conveyor set I made three cocktail-umbrella lampshades for the party-scene. Here is a little DIY-guide, so you cn make your very own party-lamp. You need a rice-paper lampshade (they have affordable ones at IKEA), about 250 cocktail umbrellas for a shade with 50 cm in diameter. A hot glue-gun with plenty of […]

A world of Artist Journal pages

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

I´ve known for a long time now, and am happy to finally share with you the great news! I am appearing in Dawn DeVries Sokol´s new book A World of Artist Journal Pages. I haven´t seen the book myself yet, as it doesn´t release until April 21st. Some of the pages featured will be from […]

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 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 […]
