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.

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 […]

Svalbard 2

Friday, April 4th, 2014

In 2012, Svalbard had an estimated population of 2,642, of whom 439 were Russian and Ukrainian, 10 were Polish and 322 were other non-Norwegians living in Norwegian settlements. The largest non-Norwegian groups in Longyearbyen in 2005 were from Thailand, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, and Germany. Svalbard is among the safest places on Earth, with virtually no crime. Maybe since the landscape is either snow-white […]


Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

Taking an early morning plane, I wake up to the captain´s voice: “And as you can see, we are now approaching our destination”. Looking out the window, this is what I see: A sight for Gods! Something I´ve never seen before and that fills me with awe. It feels like I´m at the end of […]


Friday, August 2nd, 2013

What an exciting adventure! Last week I was invited to Grimstad, on the Southern coast of Norway, to visit my new friends, Tore and Bente. I spent the day and night in their summerhouse, it was just so lovely! They´re such generous and kind people, I felt right at home! One of the things Tore […]

Ice, ice baby!

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

New experience! I´ve been glacier hiking! For the first time in my life. And it was such fun! The Nigards glacier is an arm of the Jostedals glacier. Equipped with mountain boots, spikes, ice-ax and tied together with a rope. Cool! This is fun! And the reason I´m here: To get some cool photographs! (literarily) We […]
