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.

The silk-rabbit vest

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

The vest is made with a big rabbit-fur vest I bought at a charity-shop. It smelled like an ashtray, so I put a lot of effort into removing the stench. First, I tried my ozone-cabinet, without any effect (Which is the first time!) Then I had it on a hanger in a dry-cleaner plastic bag, […]

Leather belt

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

My new red leather belt! Sewn from a piece of leather I got at a charity-shop. I found inspiration on Pinterest and made a pattern that resembled the original. It is shaped so that it glides over itself, and is therefor adjustable to several sizes. It ties around itself, and  into a buckle in the […]

Silk belt

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

My green belt is sewn in silk brocade, a piece I bought when I was in China years ago. The color is more like in the last photo, a lovely olive green. I wish I could tell you that I made a pattern for this, but I just winged it as I went along. The inside […]

Trousers

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

My linen/wool trousers are finished. I traced the pattern from a pair of silk trousers I got in Denmark a couple of years ago, that I really like. They do look a bit silly on this bust, way too small around the waist, so I pinched in a bundle in the back. I think they […]

From dust-bunnies to costume

Monday, June 6th, 2016

As the exam-exhibition is getting closer, Ia m intensifying my practical work. I am trying to complete a costume. Honestly, I am making it up as I go along. I should of course made a proper design, drawn up patterns and first then started to sew. But why be obvious?! So now I am making […]

self-centered

Sunday, June 5th, 2016

Photos fram our practical group-exam in performance.    You know that something is wrong. You know that you can do something about it. You know that you won´t because it is too uncomfortable. You choose to self-centre.

This is part of a school-assigment in my Masters-degree. We are working with Creative Learning-processes, and part of this is actually working together in a group making a philosphy-based performance. We decided early on to work with Arne Næss and Deep ecology. We asked ourselves, if we know about all the dangers, the state of […]

Buttercup design

Friday, May 6th, 2016

My favorite story-teller group the Øfsti/Vestre/Haugland have had the premiere on “Smørbukk” (Buttercup). A traditional Norwegian fairytale of a lazy boy who likes candy, manages to trick a two-headed troll a couple of times before he violently beheads it, steals all it´s gold and goes back to his mother for more candy. Not an obvious bed-time […]

the little Eco-Ninja

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016

Time to finish the little Eco-Ninja-costume! After a few alterings, this is what it will look like. It´s been so interesting to be a part of this process, an active part, contributing with both my knowledge of textile and costumes, but also about the sustainability of textiles. And my teaching-experience comes in handy too. You gotta […]

Oslo

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

I just got back from Oslo after working with s´the story-teller-group Øfsti/Vestre/Haugland. Such great days with beautiful people and sunny days of spring! They premier on Saturday, so these photos are still very much work-in-progress pictures. The back-drop is my favorite: a snow-camuflage-net we bought used from the military. So much better to use in […]
