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.

It is art

Thursday, April 28th, 2016

The kids from Sveio Art-school had a creative filed-trip to Leirvik to make art! Det er kunst directly translates to it is art. Their teacher was inspired by the upcoming embroidery-exhibition, and taught the kids to embroider cross-stitch directly onto the park-bench-chairs. And the result is SO cool! The kids are from 8 to 16 […]

Yayoi Kusama

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Henie Onstad Kusntsenter (/Artcentre) has a great exhibition these days, and as I´ve been i Oslo, I managed to visit it. It´s filled with art made by Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist, who is probably best known for all her polka-dots. Above is an early painting, an abstract picture of a net or a web. […]

inspiration: AnniesRags

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

AnniesRags is one of my favorite Etsy-shops! She makes unique jewelry, pieced together by treasures gathered from around the world, joined with her own self-made beads. Whenever I wear her jewelry, I hum to myself from West Side Story: “I feel pretty!”

inspiration: Jean Paul Gaultier

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

The Barbican in London hosts a very special exhibition: the art, design and work of Jean Paul Gaultier. Two of my favorite outfits. The mongolian inspired dress above and the aran knitted dress below. Gaultier is a true master in fashion design, but he´s also made costumes for several films: The 5th Element and The […]

inspiration: Barbara Rae

Monday, July 21st, 2014

These beautiful paintings are made by Barbara Rae. I was introduced to her art at the Summer exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art in London. It´s one of the few open exhibitions in England, where anyone can apply to show their art. Barbara however, is not just anybody. She is an acclaimed artist, painter and […]

Marvelous Mindy!

Sunday, November 3rd, 2013

Mindy Lacefield is the artist behind Tim´s Sally. I´ve been lucky enough to meet her a couple of times at Artfest, and she is a true delight to be around. Always with a smile and a catching creative inspiration surrounding her. She´s finally released her very own book, after being published is several magazines. And […]

paint your days bright

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Don´t these colors just make you happy? I was thrilled when I found that my local paint-shop finally could make really bright-colored interior paints! I´ve already bought two of the colors for upcoming projects, but look at the rainbow! How can one limit oneself to only two colors?!? My friend Shelly Massey hasn´t! She´s the […]

BAFF* and encouragement

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

I just got a wonderful, wonderful surprise-gift in the mail from Michelle Allen! A big package! Look at this uber-cool tote-bag! I mean seriously! It is SO going to be my to-and-from-work-bag this fall! The vibrant colors, the funky design, the unmistakeable “Michelleishness” over it. She is just such a great artist, and such a […]

traditional wood carving

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

We interrupt this fabric-paint-workshop post series with a little traditional wood carving! 😉 I´m staying at my uncle´s house in Bergen, and he´s been wood-carving for years now, and his house  is full of these wonderful treasures that he´s made. Wood-carving like this, with the “rose-painted” motifs, I believe is a Nordic tradition. A lot […]

Tyler´s bunnygirl, Katy´s flowers and my art wall

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

It´s time for the last art-swap pieces. This cute little bunny-girl was painted by Tyler in BabyLux. Or maybe it´s a bear-girl? Anyhow. She´s cute! Next is Katy Keuter´s free-sprited painted collage. She didn´t write a title on it, so I´m calling it “Where have all the flowers gone?” Somehow it makes me think of hippies […]
