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.

Peter Pan

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

Haugesund Teater staged Peter Pan  in January and February 2017. After seeing the show in Bømlo, they bought the whole set-design and expanded and altered the story a bit, and staged a fantastic version (if I may say so myself). Below are a lot of pictures from the show, probably too many, but I had […]

Learning to fly

Friday, January 6th, 2017

Yesterday Peter Pan learned to fly. So did Tinkerbell, Wendy, John and Michael.

Backstage Peter Pan

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

21 days to go: So many things have happened this week already! As you can see in the video above. Monday the light-rig was set. And we got all the pieces of the set onto the stage, ready for: Tuesday and Wednesday the carpenters and technicians got up the flying-system and the complete set. No […]

4 element costumes in use

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

The big final in the 4 elements project was a couple of weeks ago. Children from several kindergartens were gathered at the Vestnorske theatre-center to celebrate with a big party. So much fun to see all the costumes I made in use!

How to sew an emblem

Monday, November 28th, 2016

One of the Lost Kids in Peter Pan, is a former boarding school student. So he needs a proper school uniform. A dark bottle green blazer and matching skirt has been bought on eBay. I did want to add a little imagined school emblem on the blazers. A quick google-image-search provided the image, and I […]

Accessories for warriors and diplomats

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

It´s the accessories that makes the outfit. At least to a certain degree. Peter Pan includes a number of characters, and as designer I am lucky enough to play around with how they will look. The pirates, for instance, are from all corners of the world. For one of them I made this leather shoulder-armor. […]

The peachy nightgown

Friday, November 18th, 2016

Wendy´s dress for the Peter Pan show is in the making. I wanted to move away from the white, and the pale blue is already used by Disney. So I thought I´d use peach, a warm color for a warm character. 4 meters of crepe de chine silk and a roll of peach-colored lace later… […]

Pajamas!

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

Pajama-day! In Peter Pan, both of Wendy´s brothers, John and Michael are wearing pajamas a the play. They are woken up and then fly off to Neverland. In order to make their pajamas a bit special, I choose fabric that might tell something about who they are and what they´re interested in. So I visited […]

Sewing Saturday

Sunday, November 13th, 2016

My absence the past weeks are due to a total exam-hibernation. Reading, writing, studying and reflecting. Hopefully I´ve been able to write something reasonably sensible. Anyway. So now it´s full force forward on the Peter Pan costumes! Luckily I am blessed with some absolutely wonderful friends. One of them, Nina helped me all day yesterday […]

sewing and teaching

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

I´ve been busy the past days teaching and sewing. For Peter Pan I´m working on pirate-costumes and lost kids-costumes. This is a fencing-vest for one of the pirate. Made from raw silk, layered with a thick cotton-padding fabric and an un-bleached layer of cotton-calico. I´ve mentioned the 4 Elements-project before. I made a design for an Enthusiast-costume […]
