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.

Miyajima and Hiroshima

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

So much beauty and so much memories of terror in one day! My last day in Japan, I took a day-trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima, a small island right outside Hiroshima. Despite it´s small size, you can find several Unesco world heritage sites here. Starting with the great Torii gate. It is a symbol of […]

Kyoto – geisha-spotting

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Today I visited the Nishijin textile centre & museum. They had their own kimono-fashion-show, a weavery and a big museum-shop. The best part however, was the dress-up-like-a-Japanese photo-shoot. I choose the more-is-more version of the 12 layered wedding-kimono! Full on with wig and makeup and the works. 12 layers of heavy silk over a pair […]

Kyoto – temple-town and shrine-city

Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Kyoto – the cultural and historical capital of Japan. 1,5 million citizens. And so many World Heritage Cutural sites! There is so much to see in this city, everywhere you turn, it seems. When I arrived, I walked to the Kyoto Museum of Modern Art. And right next to it, the Kyoto Museum of Traditional Crafts. […]

Naoshima

Friday, October 14th, 2016

Naoshima – the little art island of Japan. Recommended by Tanja Beer, the pioneer of eco-scenography. And when I come, I land in the middle of an art-festival! The Setouchi Triennale. As you can see on the map below, it includes some island-hopping to reach over everything. But I´vé stayed here in Naoshima for two […]

Kanazawa

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

I admit, I hadn´t heard of Kanazawa before, but now it´s a favorite city! So much culture, tradition and art, old and modern, in one place! Wow! If you´re ever going to Japan, try to make a stop in Kanazawa! Here are just a very few photos of what I experienced in one day in […]

National Astronomical Observatory of Japan

Saturday, October 8th, 2016

Stargazing at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. My trip to Japan has some incredible treats! I was invited by professor Agata to give a talk at the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan. It´s´is connected to my Master-research about eco-scenography within the Global Science Opera. I´m just a student, yet I am asked to speak […]

TOKYO!

Thursday, October 6th, 2016

I´m in Japan! IT´s been a dream for so long, I can hardly believe it´s come true. But here I am, still slightly jet-lagged, but fine. It´s only the first day, and already now I suspect two things strongly: 1. I have to come back! and 2: I did a good thing when I booked […]

Roadtrip to Ålesund

Sunday, September 11th, 2016

To be perfectly honest, it´s more a business-trip than a road-trip per say. But road-trip sounds more fun. This time my sister kept me company and helped me. She´d never been to this part of the country, and the scenery is actually absolutely stunning, and we were driving, so in many ways it was a […]

Curacao

Saturday, July 2nd, 2016

I bet when you hear the word Curacao, you picture a drink in a shade of blue similar to this one: Well, Curacao is way more than a drink. It is also an island in the Caribbean, just 65 kilometers North of Venezuela. It´s a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Which means that […]

London!

Tuesday, November 17th, 2015

Anders, my nephew, turned 10 earlier this fall, and just like his sister, his birthday-present from his aunt (me) was a trip to London. If you ever were in doubt: London is always a great place to go! (Carousel-selfie) He had a whole list of things he really wanted to see and do: Big Ben, […]
