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.

Textile not-so-fun facts

These pow-posters are part of the Undress My Ego exhibition:  

UNDRESS MY EGO

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

The international Women´s day this year was celebrated in a special way I´ve been wanting to do for years: Together with my good friends Ida Fugli and Sara Birgitte Øfsti, we opened our exhibition ”Undress my Ego”. Stord Art group invited us to use the art-exhibition room in Stord Culture-house. Here are some photos from […]

The DNA workshop

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Working with three colleagues from the University, we started a two-day WASO workshop on DNA at a high school today. Combining arts and science. So how do you make art around the DNA-theme? By using macramé of course! By tying a half-knot over and over, it twists around itself like a double spiral, just like […]

The body-suit

Monday, January 1st, 2018

The upcoming exhibition “Undress my ego” in March is all about textiles and clothes. I´ve been working on several pieces at the same time, seemingly not being able to finish any of them. But finally: Stage one is finished on the body-suit. It´s a complete one-piece, with a zipper in the back from head to […]

Preparations

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

Currently I am working on my upcoming exhibition. In March, Ida Fugli, Sara Birgitte Øfsti and I will be responsible for the Women´s day exhibition in Stord Kunstlag. We´ve named the exhibition “Undress my Ego” and working with our own ambivalent relationship towards clothes. Below is one of my pieces, which I finished today. It´s […]

The black laced choker

Monday, February 27th, 2017

For the freestyle machine embroidery workshop jewelry, I wanted to make a couple of examples. This is one of them. I first made an outer line of a lace-choker. I then started to fill it. By simply sewing a geometric pattern of little “fans”, I filled the space between the two lines more or less […]

6 000 000 STING exhibition opeing

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

Bømlo art group asked to show my embroidery exhibition, and today was the opening. Here are just a few photos from the exhibition: Trine, the leader of the group, opened the exhibition. Some of the work is redesigned wool needlepoint. Other pieces are guerilla-inspired. Yet other pieces are portraits made by fabric-printing, appliqué and machine […]

6 000 000 stitches (again)

Thursday, February 23rd, 2017

My embroidery exhibition 6 000 000 STING (stitches) is now finished in Stord Museum, and in January I got a request to show it again in Bømlo. It´s not traveling far, but it´s fun to see it up again so soon. It opens Saturday, and will be up for a week-and-a-half.

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 […]

Christmas sweater

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

The past 10 years I´ve spent December 23rd helping my sister in her store, wrapping presents. This year, she´s closed her shop, and we were talking about what we´d do this year. I suggested we should make our own Christmas sweaters, after all, we are creative people! 😉 It´s been SO incredibly busy the past […]
