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.

Sewing Saturday

By spotogspindel | November 13, 2016

My absence the past weeks are due to a total exam-hibernation. Reading, writing, studying and reflecting. Hopefully I´ve been able to write something reasonably sensible. Anyway. So now it´s full force forward on the Peter Pan costumes!


Luckily I am blessed with some absolutely wonderful friends. One of them, Nina helped me all day yesterday appliquéing leaves onto costumes. I made patterns, cut and sew the garments. Her help was invaluable!


No surprise, it´s so much more fun to create when you´re working with someone. Being an artist/maker is awesome, but sometimes it can be a bit lonely. So I treasure these times when I can create with someone else. 🙂


So we got 4 pants, half a vest and then some done yesterday. Such a big help! Thank you, Nina!


To end a great day, it was a jazz- and literature-night at the culture house. My old school-friend Bjørn Sortland (who´s written 55 books! Check him out, he´s been translated to at least 20-something languages) is always a treat to listen to. Another friend of mine, Christine Bjordal, played songs form her new album, not released yet, but oh-so-beautiful! The second author, Agnes Ravatn, I havn´t read anything from yet, but she´s one of the up-and-coming Nordic Noir-authors.


And today? Keep on sewing! 😀

    Your sewing is a lot more creative than mine! Of course, so is your life. 🙂
