Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, 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.

Facemask embroidery

Sunday, April 12th, 2020

10 000 stitches later…. Wool needle-point embroidery on stramei, 20 x 20 cm.

A crafty fall

Monday, January 27th, 2020

I´ve been knitting this fall and winter. A lot more than usual. And not for any show, just for the pleasure of it, and mainly for myself. I´ve always loved knitting, I guess you could say I´m an idea-starter, not necessarily an idea-completer, when it comes to private projects. So I set a goal to […]

The 2019 Christmas ornaments

Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

If you have been following me for a while, you know that every Christmas I make one new Christmas tree ornament. (And that I swap with some of my artist-friends). Why a suitcase? I wanted the ornament to reflect my 2019, if possible. And a suitcase may or not be representative of that. In the […]

Portable metal-brush or embroidered x-ray

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

I have what looks like a portable paint-brush inside my right arm. It´s not. It´s made of metal. And the brushy-part is metal screws. No big deal. I broke my wrist. Slightly bigger deal, it´s my right arm. As an artist, my right arm is rather valuable to me. But again, no big deal. I […]

6000000 STING in Bryne

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Garborgsenteret in Bryne wanted to show my embroidery-exhibition, and it will be on display there until May -19 (at least). The exhibit was put together by a professional with a masters degree in scenographic museum-displays. How lucky am I?! Fabiola. Orignal by Henner. Embroidered versions. A collage of embroidery borrowed from the public.

Budapest, Hungary

Saturday, August 11th, 2018

A long-weekend in Budapest with my husband, before heading for a conference in Vienna. Budapest. It sounds like… exotic mystery lurking behind a iron-veil. At least that was my impression as a young girl, when Hungary was part of the East-block. And even if we were here just a couple of days before taking the […]

The black laced choker

Monday, February 27th, 2017

For the freestyle machine embroidery workshop jewelry, I wanted to make a couple of examples. This is one of them. I first made an outer line of a lace-choker. I then started to fill it. By simply sewing a geometric pattern of little “fans”, I filled the space between the two lines more or less […]

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.

Freestyling workshop

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Sunday I had a great gang of people participating in my freestyle machine-embroidered jewelry workshop. Placed inside the Salhus Trikotasjemuseum in Salhus, outside of Bergen, in the middle of their embroidery-exhibition. At first, as always, it´s a challenge to figure out the coordination of the rhythm of pedal-speed and movement-speed of the fabric itself. But […]

embroidery and language

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

The first embroidery-workshop took place at the museum this week. Although it was more of a dialect-lecture than an embroidery-workshop. One of my art-pieces in the exhibition is a word-cloud, filled with dialect words and expressions. Inspired by this, we launched this workshop where you could embroider your own favorite word(s), while listening to professor […]
