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.

Roadtrip to Ålesund

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

To be perfectly honest, it´s more a business-trip than a road-trip per say. But road-trip sounds more fun. This time my sister kept me company and helped me. She´d never been to this part of the country, and the scenery is actually absolutely stunning, and we were driving, so in many ways it was a […]

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 […]
