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.

For the first time in almost exactly ten years, I am back at Bømlo Folk High School teaching. This time only for a day. A creative Saturday!

Freestyling workshop

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017

Sunday I had a great gang of people participating in my freestyle machine-embroidered jewelry workshop. Placed inside the Salhus Trikotasjemuseum in Salhus, outside of Bergen, in the middle of their embroidery-exhibition. At first, as always, it´s a challenge to figure out the coordination of the rhythm of pedal-speed and movement-speed of the fabric itself. But […]

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 […]
