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.

The Full Monty

Friday, February 7th, 2020

Today is the opening night of The Full Monty (I blanke messingen) with Kompani Andersen. A small group of amateur-theatre-enthusiasts decided to stage the musical about the unemployed Sheffield-workers who put on a strip-show to earn some fast cash. Not unexpectedly, they discover that one thing is to undress, another thing is to do it […]

Upcycled pouf

Saturday, December 7th, 2019

There never seems to be enough storage-space. So when I found this cute, little pouf, I bought it. It has the delightful characteristic that is is: 1. Big enough for storage. 2. Solid enough for people to sit on when I need an extra seat. 3. It is made of all-natural materials, a wooden frame […]

Upcycled cupboard

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019

Our local recycling center has an own department called “Too good to throw away”, where people can put their stuff instead to tossing it in the dump. And others can pick up what they like for free! Aaaaand I found this wooden commode there and thought “Hmmm, I can do something with this!” I also […]

The Prague Quadrennial

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

I first heard of the Prague Quadrennial a couple of decades ago, my baby-sister was there when she studied costume-design, but I had never been. This year, I decided it was time! It was a wonderment of lectures, exhibitions, national pavilions, workshops, talks …. And sustainability was clearly becoming a topic which more and more […]

Porto SPACE conference

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

The final international conference for the SPACE-project, including lectures and workshops. I always learn so much at these. This time I came directly from the US, and was jet-lagged and got a cold on the plane (of course), but still enjoyed it. Since a couple of the speakers had to cancel last minute, I was […]

The Climate Reality experience

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

March brought with it a great adventure and one of the best courses I´ve attended: The Climate Reality Leadership Training in Atlanta, USA. This might be better known as former vice President Al Gore´s grass-root organisation of people advocating against global warming. Over 2300 people were gathered in Atlanta to learn the latest on the […]

Upcycled dollshouse

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

I found an old, tired dolls-house at a charity-shop a couple of years ago for $3, and thought I could do something fun with it. I still remember how badly I wished for a dolls-house when I was a little girl, and thought perhaps the case might be the same for my niese. The roof […]

Workshops in Porto

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Never too late to try something new, right? Like teaching composition-workshops to music-students!! I had kick-off session explaining what the GSO was, and challenged them to make the composition for the trailer for Gravity. Together with their amazing teacher, Oscar, they did it! I also held an eco-design workshop with the teachers, challenging them to […]
