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.

On an ordinary Sunday

Monday, October 5th, 2015

… I have breakfast with my best friend visiting from Svalbard (celebrating my birthday last night), plan an outing to Harry Potter world in London with my nephew, have lunch with my family, glue up a 14 meter long wallpaper in a shopping mall (I´ll tell you more about this later), dinner at a pizza-restaurant again […]

Almost ready…

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

The past two days I´ve been in Haugesund, at the new Health-house, putting up artwork on the walls and in the ceiling! On the 7th floor is the cantina for all the employees. Two long walls are covered with windows, I thought I´d add a little bit of a view on the 3rd and 4th […]

ain´t no mountain high enough…

Saturday, September 12th, 2015

Well, this was not my average start of a Saturday: going mountain hiking. It´s no big deal really, the mountain is just 400 meters or so. But since it´s the only big mountain we have here on the island, it´s perfect for taking photos all around the island. Later I will try to merge them […]

3D printing

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Well this is something I´ve never done before! Two weeks into my Masters and I am trying to learn a new computer program in 3D modeling. Being an old lady, it´s taking it´s time 😉 But the fun part is, when I get it right, I can actually print the design in hard plastic in […]

new project(s)…

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Today included a professional photo-shoot for a theatre poster. “Pieta” will be staged in a hotel-suite (!) in the beginning of December. I´ll be in charge of costumes and props. We won´t start working with it for weeks yet, but it´s always exciting to be in the starting pit of a project, especially with nice people […]

Negative – positive

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

I´m back working with lace and freestyle machine embroidery again. This time, I´m experimenting with the contrasts of a negative vs a positive image. As in old-fashioned photo-film. I embroidered this face with white silk thread on white silk organza and white tulle. You can certainly see the shapes and you understand that it´s a […]

Soft Monuments, soft moments

Monday, August 31st, 2015

I visited the exhibition “Soft Monuments” at KODE in Bergen today. A big exhibition with textile works, both wallhangings and sculptures. It was so inspiring walking among these great pieces of art, and so calming. They are soft on the soul, but still leave food for thought. I just wanted to share a couple of […]

a new life

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

I´m spending my days trying to adjust to my new life. Juggling jobs and commissions, and studying, learning new things. First thing I´ve learned, or maybe realized is a better word, is that I know quite a bit how-to, and hardly anything about my subject. Which is interesting in itself. I have a strong feeling […]


Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

I´m a student! 22 years since i graduated Teachers College, with my arts and crafts-teacher degree. And now, I have started the Master studies. I´ve been putting off thinking much about it until now when it all of a sudden started yesterday.. I´ve felt like the biggest gambler getting into this. The past 8 years […]

Building inspection!

Friday, August 14th, 2015

I think I´ve already mentioned it. Haugesund city is getting a new health house. With a private hospital, physiotherapy, optician, a gym, a post-office, a grocery-store, a café… and 24 apartments on top! An all-in-building, in the middle of Haugesund centre. It´s a 7 story-building, and it is SO lovely formed and planned – kudos […]
