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 Beaverly Hills!

Saturday, November 21st, 2015

No, that is not a spelling mistake. I just wanted to share this commercial with you. I made the beaver-costumes years ago for Narnia, and earlier this fall, I was asked by an advertising company if they could use them in a commercial. Well, here is the result. Click the link, and you´ll see it: […]

not creative at all

Wednesday, November 11th, 2015

Well, what do you know?! Studying for exams takes time! So if you´re wondering why I am so quiet, it´s simply because there is very little time to be creative. All my days are now focused on my 5 exams before Christmas. There is a surprising amount of theory for these practical subjects. It´s ok, […]

Embroidery workshop

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

What a great day! A whole day with 10 arts and crafts-collegues! I held a practical and inspirational workshop for FOS (Forum for Oppvekst i Sunnhordland) embroidery. Both hand- and freestyle machine embroidery. While we were hand-embroidering it was quiet enough for us to discuss the daily challenges of the trade. 5 schools were represented. […]

Photo at school

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

A photo-workshop at school! And I got to do 2 first-timers! 3, come to think of it. First, taking photos with a home-made pin-hole camera. Using an old tin-can, with a tiny hole drilled through the side of it. Adding a lid of a black plastic and aluminum-foil, and exposing the photo-paper placed inside to […]

Building boats with kids

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

Bømlo Art group just had it´s annual family-day at the culture-house (which just celebrated it´s 10th anniversary this weekend) This year we decided to build boats, and take them for a “swim” at the beach the next day. Martha is in charge, sawing wooden pieces for the kids, who use a hammer to nail it […]

Melting stuff is fun! So much fun. And metal But melting metal is especially fun! Last Friday, this is what we learned at school. Using a homemade form, filling it with fine sand, mixed with a bit of oil, we pressed hard objects into the sand, leaving an imprint. Carefully carving a canal for the melted […]

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 […]

wallpapering the mall

Sunday, October 4th, 2015

I have a pretty cool family! They help out, when needed. Especially my Dad. He´s helped me in so many projects, I´ve lost track! Today he, my sister and my brother-in-law helped me with getting up the big wallpaper in HSD. Me dusting down the wall in preparation. My brother-in-law added glue to the wall, […]

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 […]
