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.

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 […]

I´ve just had the best adventure! Talk about dream-come-true! I´ve made my very own glass! I mean, I´ve blown and shaped my own glass! That is just amazing! On the evening before our Master class-trip to Bergen, there was an introduction-workshop in glass-blowing at S12Galleri. Two hours, and only room for four people, which is […]

a matter of perspective

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

We´ve been lied to. In School. For generations. We are all sure we know what the world looks like. We´ve seen it so many times. And then it turns out… it´s a lie. The proportions are completely contorted. THIS is much closer to the truth. Why is it so? That we´re introduced the the other […]

the little Eco-Ninja

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Time to finish the little Eco-Ninja-costume! After a few alterings, this is what it will look like. It´s been so interesting to be a part of this process, an active part, contributing with both my knowledge of textile and costumes, but also about the sustainability of textiles. And my teaching-experience comes in handy too. You gotta […]

the embroidered car!

Sunday, April 17th, 2016

How fun is this?! A go-kart-car was delivered on my doorstep yesterday, to be embellished with embroidery! All for the exhibition, and commissioned by the museum. Hopefully it will be an eye-catcher at the entrance. But before that, I intend to have a lot of fun making it! The car itself is made by Paul […]

new net

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Finding the perfect shades to attract a mermaid… Sewing them down, 4 cm apart, on the water-soluble fiber… And sewing some more… And some more… Hopefully I´ll finish tomorrow, adding all the seams of gold on the net. Three seams for every piece of fabric, for over 3 meters. It´s taking it´s time. So I […]

Circles and squares

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

I just have to share with you the wonderful collages my niece and nephew made after yesterday´s photo-safari. One of the assignments were to choose a form and see how many versions they could find of it nearby. He choose circles, and she choose squares. When we got back to the house, I taught them […]

Everyday is workday.

Monday, March 21st, 2016

As my 4-year-old nephew says: “I like work!”. He was especially excited when his uncle showed him how to use the pressure washer on my car… (I admit I was slightly less excited) And Axel spent the entire day fixing our sofa. It´s an old one, probably from the 1920s, and the springs had gone, […]
