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.

Sunday, April 17th, 2011

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is journey, so I thought maybe a travel-journal might be appropriate? My calender/travel-journal/art-journal with workshop-notes and Artfest-trades. (Love my pink pages after the pale pages of winter!) Not all pages are finished yet, this is a work-in-progress. Some stamps, some scraps, some tape, some paint… … some crayons, some lettering, […]

Arting at Michelle´s and if-duet

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Lots of smaller stuff being done today, but I managed to finish a journal-page. Part collage, part trying out new paint colors, and part random text. The colors are Golden´s  Quinacridone Azo gold and Turquoise pthalo. And an attempt at Illustration Friday´s theme Duet.  The idea is ok, but I notice that I need practice […]

I was going to wait another few days with wishing everyone a great christmas, but then IF came and messed that up :-). So: Have a wonderful December, a peaceful Christmas and a great new year! Or maybe I […]

Who are you calling pre-historic? Extinct?!! I´ll show you extinct!!! This small acrylic painting/collage in my calender-journal was inspired by the theme (of course) and my Hidden Secret book I made in April. The total size is about 10×10 cm. I used a high-gloss medium on the eye for a naturalistic reflection in the eye. […]

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is savour. The definition is: 1. The spesific taste or smell of something 2. A distinctive sensation “You must pre-live the future, not re-live the past… and savor the moment!” I first thought of lemons and could almost taste them just by thinking about them… and decided I´d work with […]
