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.

Embroidery workshop

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

What a great day! A whole day with 10 arts and crafts-collegues! I held a practical and inspirational workshop for FOS (Forum for Oppvekst i Sunnhordland) embroidery. Both hand- and freestyle machine embroidery. While we were hand-embroidering it was quiet enough for us to discuss the daily challenges of the trade. 5 schools were represented. […]

The Girly-girls in Fitjar

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

I´ve had the best day! Visiting Fitjar High School and the 9 students in the senior year in Arts and crafts. We spent the whole day together, sewing and chatting. I brought my girly-girls with me, and they all made their own bags, Almost everyone nearly finished… If we´d had another half an hour and […]

The final three days at Brosteinteateret & Hemmingstad Kulturhus have been busy! I almost regret to say that the final day was today: the people here are so wonderful and inspirational, and it´s been such a treat working with them! Kriatina showing off the starfish she´s been working on the past days. None of the […]

Etched art

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Bømlo Art group organized a workshop last weekend with the multi-talented artist Jan Terje Rafdal. A big success, a full workshop of eager students and an engaging teacher. My aluminum plate, with the motif etched into it: a landscape from the northern part of Bømlo, where the naked rock faces meets the sea. And  a […]

One of the fun projects that will go throughout the year, is visiting a arts and crafts class at one of the local schools. It will only be a short visit in each of the 4 groups during the year, where I show and tell a bit about printing. I notice that I am used […]

It´s not being Christened until November, but arting takes time!And today 15 kids in the Eidesvik-club joined me in making the days brighter for the people who will be working onboard. Most of these kids have parents working onboard on one of […]

Student work

Thursday, August 14th, 2014

I have a student! A lady asked me if she could take private classes with me for a while, and today was our first day together. As a teacher, I´ve had plenty of students, but it feels a bit different having one student in your home.

Weaving is the topic of the day. After a brief overview of all the different techniques of ways of fastening strings of yarn together, like tying, knotting, crocheting, knitting, weaving, etc, we visited  the local weaving crafts society. This is a bridal blanket. It was carried over the bridal couples arms on the way to the church […]
