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 stitches

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

The original idea was to show appreciation for the time, love and effort women throughout the ages have invested into transforming a house into a home, much via textiles. The contribution to society and world history has often been ignored, because it was in different fields. They took care of the “small world”. While the […]

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 […]

International Women´s day

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

March 8th is the International Women´s day. This day is celebrated in our neighbor-municipaly, with a demonstration-martch, an art-exhibition and an evening of talks and appeals. Very interesting! I am ashamed to say that at my ripe age, it´s the first time I´ve attended an event like this. (It was about time!) But I am […]

It´s still three months till the opening of my exhibition, but man! Time flies!!! There is so much left to do! Today we did get to tick one of the boxes though. We had a photo-shoot at the museum, to have pictures for the poster. I had excellent help from Helen (photos) and Miriam (styling). […]

I did actually see stars the other day… but ´tis the season of rain, so that´s pretty much the deal. ( I don´t mind) Exam due-dates are closing in, and you´d think I´d spend every available moment studying. I´m not. This whole weekend I´ve been making art. I have a new ship to decorate just […]

Today was the opening of my solo-exhibition at Bovbjerg Lighthouse. My very first exhibtion outside Norway. 67 pictures all together, 23 of the my Familylife in the lighthouses-series.

Ready… set….

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

It´s not everyday I have this scenic road to work! I´m in Denmark, staying with some of the lighthouse-enthusiasts, and this morning I walked from their house to the lighthouse via the beach. Pretty darn beautiful, isn´t it?!!! And so different from our coastline in Sunnhordland. We´ve spent most of the morning hanging all the […]
