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.

spring on the west coast

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

The past days have been absolutely beautiful! Still cold, but sunny. The first days of spring are here. And when the weather is as beautiful as it is now, the west-coast is stunning! I´ve been out driving, delivering art to another ship. A 12 hour drive along the coast, including 5 ferries. A good audiobook […]

National treasures – the nature

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Norway is a small country, for better and for worse. A densely populated, weird, long shape on the map. But it is a country filled with unexpected treasures, some of whom I´ve seen this last part of the summer. So let me share in a couple of posts, some of the national treasures, big and […]

London 2014

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

New York may have Broadway. But London has it´s West End. And the theatre they produce here is truly world-class! My London-week was filled with input. We´ve had theatre-meetings, but part of working in the theatre is to go see shows too. You always learn something from a show, good or bad. It´s been 3 […]

Sagrada Familia

Monday, July 28th, 2014

The only thing I knew about Barcelona really, was that it was the home of La Sagrada Familia, the cathedral Gaudi designed. So of course I wanted to see this building I had heard so much about. And even though I had high expectations, I was overwhelmed by the beauty, the size, the work, the […]

Barcelona – where the old meets the new Barcelona – where else can you find a beach miles long AND an distinguished cultural city? Barcelona – where else can you, while eating dinner, be musically entertained first by an accordionist, then by a punk-band? Narrow streets, funky shops, nice people. And a nouveau genius architecte… […]

Ribadeo, Figueras, Spain

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

I am in Spain on business! Along the Northern coast of Spain in the Asturias-area, there is a small town called Figueras, and in this small town there is a ship-yard. They happen to be building Møkster Shipping´s newest vessel, an advanced supply-ship. A couple of weeks ago I sent all the art down through […]

England – city life and countryside

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

London is my favorite city in the world! What a joy this past week has been, being in London both for work and pleasure! This fall and winter I will be working at Haugesund Teater with props and costs for Grease, the musical. Along with the director and the translator, we had meetings with the […]

Svalbard 3

Monday, April 7th, 2014

Svalbard is a small society. Yet it´s like a whole little country. You can get just about anything here, it´s very self-sufficient. That is, almost everything is imported, mainly from Norway. 2500 people living here. The main work-places are the coal-mining industry, the university with students from all over the world, public services and sales, […]

Svalbard: dogs and glaciers

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

A new day, yet another adventure. This time old-style with dogs and sleighs. I was the passager, Anne the driver. We had 6 dogs pulling the sleigh, and for several hours today, this was my view: One of our dogs. Some husky, some other breeds, all used to the extreme cold. But still enjoying the […]

Svalbard – Barentsburg

Saturday, April 5th, 2014

A new day, a new adventure! I was invited along with a couple of friends to Barentsburg. It´s easiest to go there in winter by snow-scooter, it´s only about 2-3 hours from LongYearCity. Ready to take on the Arctic desert. Or space, for that matter! Barentsburg is a Russian city in Svalbard. Like LongYearCity, it´s […]
