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.

Fabiola´s home!

Saturday, March 4th, 2017

She´s home! If you ever come across Henner´s Fabiola in a charity-shop, a flea-market or some place else, please help me with my collection! The biggest one here is an oil-painting, all the other ones are embroidered, but none of them are the same. I have one print of the original, and that´s enough, to […]

recycled pillow

Monday, December 15th, 2014

From table to couch. I found this old handwoven tablecloth in a charity-shop a while back, and have been wanting to make a little pillow for my couch. I found the perfect inner-pillow with feathers, and it was quick to se it together along the sides in the back, turn it, and sew together the […]

Manhattan skyline

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

A friend of mine renewed his kitchen. Above his stove he wanted a urban motif: the Manhatten skyline. I helped him in the process, finding a photo, having it printed and mounted onto the wall. Looks pretty cool, huh?! 🙂 (this is before he´s actually moved back into the room, so it´s a bit empty […]

Indian inspiration

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Nina´s colorful Indian room started last summer with a weekend of painting. we painted cupboards and cabinets, and since then she´s started using the room. We´re still not completely finished with all the details, (and it´s so much fun working with all the details) but we want to share part of the room at least […]

Ship design

Wednesday, February 26th, 2014

Eidesvik has once again asked me to deliver art for a ship, the grandest one to date, due in July. And as part of the planning process, they invited me along to meet the furniture supplier, Ekornes. We spent the day going over the entire interior design of the ship, everything from buttons in the […]

Bømmelfjord is a shipping company, who just moved into a new location, in the same building as Eidesvik. Their new offices were white and light and maybe a bit dull. They asked me to make some art for the common areas. The art should reflect the company, both past and future, and what they are […]

Eidesvik´s reception-desk in the making

Saturday, December 14th, 2013


Monday, August 26th, 2013

My friend with the Indian-inspired room stopped by yesterday with a plain, old lampshade she wanted to give a mini-make-over. Using a piece of silk brocade and spray-on glue, it was done in five minutes. (So fast, I didnt have time to photograph the beginning) We sprayed the glue on the shade, carefully wrapped the […]

And  talking of painting wooden things…: Here´s what Nina and I did the night before getting started on all her cabinets. I had a couple of wooden serving plates, found at a charity shop, that I think was a little outdated and dreary in the colors. The wood itself is a good quality balsa. (These […]

Add color, add life

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

One of my dear friends has been dreaming of a colorful, Indian inspired room for pretty much as long as I´ve known her, and finally her dream is coming true. I´ve promised to help her and today was our big painting day together. First we got this brand new, white, shabby chic cabinet with glass […]
