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.

Miyajima and Hiroshima

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

So much beauty and so much memories of terror in one day! My last day in Japan, I took a day-trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima, a small island right outside Hiroshima. Despite it´s small size, you can find several Unesco world heritage sites here. Starting with the great Torii gate. It is a symbol of […]

Kyoto – geisha-spotting

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Today I visited the Nishijin textile centre & museum. They had their own kimono-fashion-show, a weavery and a big museum-shop. The best part however, was the dress-up-like-a-Japanese photo-shoot. I choose the more-is-more version of the 12 layered wedding-kimono! Full on with wig and makeup and the works. 12 layers of heavy silk over a pair […]

A capsule hotel! A real underground, all female capsule-hotel! My plastic cave is just at the end there… Here: Isn´t it cozy? 😀 So far, my first impression is that it´s quite noisy, with all the air-conditioning going on. We´ll see what it´s like to sleep in. And keeping it efficient: I bought dinner from […]

I admit, I hadn´t heard of Kanazawa before, but now it´s a favorite city! So much culture, tradition and art, old and modern, in one place! Wow! If you´re ever going to Japan, try to make a stop in Kanazawa! Here are just a very few photos of what I experienced in one day in […]

Soka Higashi koko

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

Another of the incredible experiences here in Japan, is the main reason for my travel: the Global Science Opera eco-scenography workshop. I have a class of 20 students, and in just 3 days, we will make a scene that will be incorporated into the opera. This morning when I arrived, this sign was waiting for […]

National Astronomical Observatory of Japan

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

Stargazing at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. My trip to Japan has some incredible treats! I was invited by professor Agata to give a talk at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. It´s´is connected to my Master-research about eco-scenography within the Global Science Opera. I´m just a student, yet I am asked to speak […]

I´m in Japan! IT´s been a dream for so long, I can hardly believe it´s come true. But here I am, still slightly jet-lagged, but fine. It´s only the first day, and already now I suspect two things strongly: 1. I have to come back! and 2: I did a good thing when I booked […]

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 […]
