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.

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 […]

The Black Comedy

Friday, October 28th, 2016

It´s opening night! Bømlo Teater is staging the Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer. The show is directed by Nina Sele, the scenography is by Janne Robberstad and the lighting-design is by Axel Sundbotten A classic farce with all the right ingredients: a struggling artist, played by Geir Ersland his beautiful fiancé, played by Jenny Larsen […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ready, set…

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

The guys have started building the set! It´s less than a month till opening night, so it´s about time, you´d think. But no worries, these guys know what they´re doing, and they do it well. In 4 weeks we´ll have a complete 2-story library in the culture-house, filled to the rim with adventures. It does […]

The room that contains all the world

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

This week I´ve been working on the set for Peter Pan. Below you can see part of the model. I´ve been working vey close with the director, throwing ideas at each other. It´s a very fun and creative way of working. Instead of sitting by yourself, thinking up things, you constantly get questions and new […]

Empty space – full space

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

I am at the start of a new and exciting scenography-project. Bømlo Teater is staging Peter Pan in October. It´s a classic favorite for many, and I think most of us have seen at least part of the animated Disney film. Which means most of us think of Peter in green tights, Hook with big, […]

Human relations at the salmon conveyor

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Tonight is the premiere of “The Salmon Conveyer” (Lakselinja). Bømlo Teater is staging Nina Sele´s show. It´s an original piece, a mix between dance-theatre and theatre. It´s repetitive, almost meditative. Is there such a thing as meditation-theatre? But there are also funny parts, sad parts and mad parts. The salmons in the background is an […]

Staging the salmon set

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Today was the move-in day on the stage for The Salmon Conveyor. 900 styrofoam-boxes. 500 meters of blank tape. 36 meters of wax-cloth. 70 square meters rented dance-floors. And about 600 cocktail-umbrellas. The director, Nina, is using the opportunity to do the jazz-hands-dance behind a row of styrofoam-boxes. These are the actual boxes the salmon […]
