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.

Facemasks

Monday, April 13th, 2020

Do facemaskes really help? It depends on the nuances of the question. They protect MORE others from you if you are carrying the virus without knowing it, than you from others. But it does reduce the risk of you catching the virus too. How large the reduction is, depends a lot on what material you […]

10 000 stitches later…. Wool needle-point embroidery on stramei, 20 x 20 cm.

A crafty fall

Monday, January 27th, 2020

I´ve been knitting this fall and winter. A lot more than usual. And not for any show, just for the pleasure of it, and mainly for myself. I´ve always loved knitting, I guess you could say I´m an idea-starter, not necessarily an idea-completer, when it comes to private projects. So I set a goal to […]

Halsnøy monastery souvenirs

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

Halsnøy monastery asked me to ake some more small pouches as souvenirs, and l had this fabric made especially for them. The first is based on the old wallpaper inside the main house, with the old seal as a the main feature, along with the text, also found there. It´s a small pouch, a practical […]

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 […]

Portable metal-brush or embroidered x-ray

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

I have what looks like a portable paint-brush inside my right arm. It´s not. It´s made of metal. And the brushy-part is metal screws. No big deal. I broke my wrist. Slightly bigger deal, it´s my right arm. As an artist, my right arm is rather valuable to me. But again, no big deal. I […]

6000000 STING in Bryne

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Garborgsenteret in Bryne wanted to show my embroidery-exhibition, and it will be on display there until May -19 (at least). The exhibit was put together by a professional with a masters degree in scenographic museum-displays. How lucky am I?! Fabiola. Orignal by Henner. Embroidered versions. A collage of embroidery borrowed from the public.

new guide gown

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

My friend Nina recently got a new job as the leader of Sunnhordland Guide service. Like the guides before her, she needed a proper guide-gown. Years ago I designed a viking-inspired with a princess-cut, sewn in raw silk, and it still looks pretty timeless. This is the belt being made. Freestyle machine-embroidery on water-soluable fabric. […]

UNDRESS MY EGO

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

Stord Art group invited us to use the art-exhibition room in Stord Culture-house. Here are some photos from […]
