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.

Wrasse reveal!

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Our goal was to engage the general public in a debate around the ocean plastic  pollution issue. And the public has greeted this art-project with engagement and support, and we are so thankful! After 11 days of hard work, the wrasse is finally ready to be revealed to the public (drum-roll)… Brita Marie Servan from […]

Open day at the workshop

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

Saturday, we invited the public to an open house at the workshop. It was a social event, and lots of people stopped by. Everyone that came, had to drill a screw into the fish, as a symbolic participation and ownership in the project. Old and young! The kids also had the opportunity to make their […]

Beach-combing in Valevaag

Wednesday, August 16th, 2017

This is what started #bomlokunstlag´ s ocean plastic art project: one members memory from his childhood when his friends and him used the coastal line and beaches as a playground. Now it is more like a dumping ground. They used to make little wooden boats. Now we’re wading in trash. So when I found this little wooden […]

Seaplastic, day 3

Monday, August 7th, 2017

Visiting the western-most part of the island (Hiskjo), where we found some surprisingly clean beaches! Beach-combing for the hard-core! A beautiful sight: this cannister says: Don´t throw away! To be used by all of us for beach-cleaning. Back at the workshop, cleaning today´s findings. Catch of the day is the little seahorse 🙂 Elizabeth started […]

Sea-plastic art, day 2

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

Well, we finished washing the trash today, at least what we have so far. And when Elizabeth started color-sorting the plastic, the beauty appears pretty much straight away. But we some really cool plans for this plastic. It is no longer waste. IT will become the coolest fish on this side of the Gulf-current! 😉 Photos […]

trashwashing

Today´s agenda: get ready for step two of the A.B.C.D.-project. This means getting all the collected ocean plastic to the workshop-garage, and wash it. The next month is going to be interesting! 🙂

A.B.C.D.

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

The art-guerilla is on a new mission! By the end of August we´ll have a big, new piece made, but before then, a lot of preparation has to take place. I will of course tell more about it later 😉 And today was certainly a kick-off. Five of us took off in a small boat out […]

Below is the poster with original artwork by Michael Hoch, a particle-physisits working at Cern I was lucky enough to meet in August. I´ll be in the studio today, […]

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 […]
