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.

Händel´s Messiah

Monday, December 4th, 2017

It´s not my traditional artistic expression, but since the blog is also inspirational, I wanted to add a post on my latest adventure. It´s been on my bucket-list for over 30 years! To join a choir and sing Händel´s Messiah. And of course the Hallelujah-choir is the highlight. It is been a favorite of mine […]

ESA!

Monday, March 27th, 2017

Best day ever! Visiting ESA ESTEC – The European Space Agency´s technical head-quarters here in Holland. Two full days of inspiration and information. Together with Mr Bernard Foing. Father of SMART-1, a real-life rocket scientist! and executive director of ESAs international Lunar Exploration Group. This is AMAZING! Our group-photo in front of the ESA space-station […]

Naoshima

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Naoshima – the little art island of Japan. Recommended by Tanja Beer, the pioneer of eco-scenography. And when I come, I land in the middle of an art-festival! The Setouchi Triennale. As you can see on the map below, it includes some island-hopping to reach over everything. But I´vé stayed here in Naoshima for two […]

Particle-physics exhibition!

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

School doesn´t really start until Tuesday, but today I had a very exciting and interesting day, volunteering to help put up an exhibition. All next week there will be a science-conference at the college, and the old auditorium is the place to be! Last night an Austrian artist/particle physicist(/ski-instructor) came to Stord and today´s task was […]

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 […]
