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.

Particle-physics exhibition!

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

School doesn´t really start until Tuesday, but today I had a very exciting and interesting day, volunteering to help put up an exhibition. All next week there will be a science-conference at the college, and the old auditorium is the place to be! Last night an Austrian artist/particle physicist(/ski-instructor) came to Stord and today´s task was […]

Starting to gear up

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

All of a sudden (it seems) summer is ending. It´s time to gear up! The past weeks I´ve started studying again (trying to catch up on some reading), I´ve worked with the fall´s workshops, designing and sewing costumes. I´ve been interviewed by the local newspaper about my up-coming trip to Japan in October. And I´ve […]

Le Déjeuner sur l’Herbe (The Picnic)

Monday, June 27th, 2016

The title is inspired by the French painter Manet, and his painting of four friends having a picnic in the woods. No woods here, but the tranquility is the same. Lying on the gras with the hay-“fence” around you. The sweet smell of drying grass. Looking up, two sea-eagles are floating by high above. Saturday we […]

the new bags

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

The 2016-collection of tote-bags are finally here! Two new designs this year. The fabric came already a month ago, but I haven´t had the time to sew them until now. (Post-exam-sewing!) The golden bag is from the islands out west, with a viking-ship sailing by. Below os the text, as usual from my 1000-islands-poem: Where the […]

From dust-bunnies to costume

Monday, June 6th, 2016

As the exam-exhibition is getting closer, Ia m intensifying my practical work. I am trying to complete a costume. Honestly, I am making it up as I go along. I should of course made a proper design, drawn up patterns and first then started to sew. But why be obvious?! So now I am making […]

self-centered

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Photos fram our practical group-exam in performance.    You know that something is wrong. You know that you can do something about it. You know that you won´t because it is too uncomfortable. You choose to self-centre.

Creativity vs. productivity

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

It´s getting closer. Two exams delivered yesterday. Two more next Monday. And a performance in between. Then it´s just the exhibition left. Above is my new book, that I´ve hardly had the time to write in. Not hat anything outside of sitting at my desk below, working hard at gaining new understanding, competence and skills. […]

Reading and writing

Sunday, May 22nd, 2016

Being the world´s most boring blogger, not posting anything… I guess that´s the price to pay for being a student. Exams are closing in, and almost all my time is devoted to reading and writing. Luckily, part of one of the exams has a practical part to it. So I will be sewing at least […]

It is art

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

The kids from Sveio Art-school had a creative filed-trip to Leirvik to make art! Det er kunst directly translates to it is art. Their teacher was inspired by the upcoming embroidery-exhibition, and taught the kids to embroider cross-stitch directly onto the park-bench-chairs. And the result is SO cool! The kids are from 8 to 16 […]

The art of curating

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

Making an art-exhibition is a pretty big job. The main part of it certainly being the making-process. But there are other, important parts as well. Like curating it, choosing which pieces to include and which to leave out, and where everything goes. (Especially when working with your own art when you have feelings connected to […]
