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.

6 000 000 STING exhibition opeing

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Bømlo art group asked to show my embroidery exhibition, and today was the opening. Here are just a few photos from the exhibition: Trine, the leader of the group, opened the exhibition. Some of the work is redesigned wool needlepoint. Other pieces are guerilla-inspired. Yet other pieces are portraits made by fabric-printing, appliqué and machine […]

6 000 000 stitches (again)

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

My embroidery exhibition 6 000 000 STING (stitches) is now finished in Stord Museum, and in January I got a request to show it again in Bømlo. It´s not traveling far, but it´s fun to see it up again so soon. It opens Saturday, and will be up for a week-and-a-half.

hipsters suspended

Monday, April 18th, 2016

How to make your very own hipster-knicker: You take one pair of vintage suspender-knickers from the late 60s. You find a couple of portrait-photos of some cool hipsters, and draw them onto the water-souble-fabric. Sew. A lot. Freestyle machine embroidery. In a slightly darker color than the vintage fabric. After the algaenat is gone, you´re left […]

Gleaner-corset

Thursday, March 31st, 2016

In a charity-shop I found an embroidered version of Jean-François Millet´s painting called The Gleaners (1857). It depicts three peasant women gleaning a field of stray grains of wheat after the harvest. I wanted to use it for something special, and decided to use it for the Elizabethan corset I´ve had in my mind for […]

redesigned embroidered corset

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Today´s embroidery-project is making a redesigned embroidered corset. Or even better yet: up-cycled! I finally decided on which old embroidery to use (and found another that kind of matches for the side-parts) It´s been a couple of years since I last made a corset and I can´t find my pattern, so I´m winging it (Yikes, […]

Mothers

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

It´s a bit late for Mother´s day, but here it is anyway: “Mothers can do everything, they know everything – and they´re always right”, guerrilla-embroidered old cloth from second-hand shop. Ca 25×28 cm. The Easter-holiday is upon us (I think Norway has the longest Easter-holiday in the world – 2 weeks!) and my main focus theses […]

Posh-ish guerilla

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

At the edge of summer, and I´m sewing away! Another guerilla-embroidery piece is done. I did not make all of this! Just the lettering. It was an unfinished piece I found in a charity-shop a couple of years ago, and I knew I wanted to make something with it, just not what…   The embroidery […]
