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.

Bovbjerg fyr

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

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. Bovbjerg lighthouse is a beautiful lighthouse in itself, but it´s all the people her that make it such a special place. Hundreds of volunteers help with all […]

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 […]

Exhibition opening Austevoll

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Today was the opening of the autumn-exhibition. I have almost all of my art gathered on the second floor in this old country grocery-store. Here are some photos from the room. I have a variety of techniques here: oil-painting, acrylic painting, silkscreen printing, freestyle machine embroidery, mica-collage, mixed media collage, acrylic on plaster and digital […]

gallery work

Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

I´ve spent the day at Austevoll, bringing my artwork up to the gallery. I didn´t think I had all that many pictures with me, but when they were all up, it turned out to be 40 pictures all in all. Grouping them and hanging them on the walls… it takes longer than one would think, […]

TAU exhibition

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Today is the opening of my exhibition in the Mill-park at Tau, right outside Stavanger. The exhibition is placed in an old barn, where the cows used to be. Thick stone-walls add to the atmosphere. Despite the age of the building, it´s all newly refurbished and bright and quite lovely. I made space for the […]

I see the sea

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

An oil-painting I made last summer. Since it´s taken forever to dry properly, it´s just been standing in my studio since then, and I just recently delivered it to Galleri Bekkjarvik. (The photo is playing tricks with the true colors here) The other picture I´m holding is a silk-screened thick silk with naked rock-faces. The […]

Ryvarden exhibition

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Sunday was the grand opening of the Family-life in the Lighthouses at Ryvarden Lighthouse. Such a beautiful, sunny day, and so many people came visiting. Ryvarden is a small lighthouse between Bømlo and Haugesund, in one of the most dangerous sea-distances along the coast. Not because it´s so long or because the weather or currants […]
