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.

School starts on Monday! I´m gonna be a student again! Yikes! Better get my new calendar-book ready, so I have somewhere to write down all I have to remember! She´s almost as pale as I am, pale with fear and excitement! She needs some more color, I need to just dive into it! Tell you […]

Posh-ish guerilla

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

At the edge of summer, and I´m sewing away! Another guerilla-embroidery piece is done. I did not make all of this! Just the lettering. It was an unfinished piece I found in a charity-shop a couple of years ago, and I knew I wanted to make something with it, just not what…   The embroidery […]

Posters and plans

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Fall is just around the corner, and plans are being made. Our culture-house is celebrating it´s 10th anniversary, and the Art group is helping with activities like a photo-workshop and a Family-day making  little wooden boats. Both things are happening in October, but since I am the poster-person, here they are: Information about the activities in […]

I am trying to explore different options, different techniques and different expressions before the big embroidery exhibition next summer. One thing that´s been quite common around here, a generation or two ago, are these embroidered wall-hangings. Some of them have a saying from the Bible, and other, like this one, welcomes you into the home. […]

The family is growing

I´m out of thread! And my family is not all there yet! Stay tuned….

Freestyle family

Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

I finally started working on a piece I first thought of almost a year ago. When I was experimenting with the freestyle machine embroidery on the water-soluble fabric for my textile-culture-exam, I wanted to make a new type of lace curtain. A contemporary and very personal one. So I made a big digital collage with […]

… and more men

Thursday, July 23rd, 2015

Still more men in the making. Dozens of them. I am making the panties for the bra I made for my Textile-culture exam. I outlined the patten form a pair of panties I already had, but am not sure if this size will fit anyone, as the elasticity is less in the embroidery than in […]

Men, men, men

Tuesday, July 21st, 2015

Men in the making. Freestyle machine embroidery on water-soluable fabric. Time to get some serious work done! It´s been a while since the last time I did these, and it´s nice to get the feel in my fingers again, and to get a sense of the time-frame. These guys took me about 4 hours to make. […]

This seasons tote-bags

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Two new tote-bags are here! Both sewn in heavy cotton fabric, and the print is of my art. The government has induced a fee on plastic bags here, so using textile tote-bags when we go shopping is good for both the environment and the wallet. The green bag has it´s main motif from Hespriholmen, a […]

A new collection on the way

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

The 2015 collection of tote-bags are on their way! I just got the fabric with my art printed on it, and am in the process of sewing them together. Even though I know pretty well how to do it by now, it sure takes time to get them done anyway.
