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.

There was so much blue on my page, I just needed a little spring-green. These are my ice-tea bottles, that both brighten up my kitchen window, and I fill up and bring along whenever I work outside the house. It´s the small things in life that bring a smile to your face.

Eidesvik reception

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

Eidesvik Offshore wanted to repaint their reception, and asked me if I could make something for two of the walls. So here is one of them, the other one is still in my head. I usually install the art myself, but since I was away, the pictures went straight from the printers to the framers […]

I´ve been working on the banner, and not been completely satisfied, but I realize that this is because I´ve only been working with the background, and it needs something… more! So today I made a big ornament on one side of the banner It is an old viking silver broach  found in an archeological dig […]

evening in the garden

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

One of the best days of the year, every year, is the first day of spring, when you can feel the promise of summer in the air. And the very best way to spend these days, every year, is outside, in the garden. Kind of sweeping winter away. Well, I didn´t do any sweeping (although […]

Akif Hakan

I´ve never heard of him before today. And absolutely fell for his pictures. His site has lots and lots of incredible images. How his photos make me want to go to London immediately! And be 15 years younger… See more of his photos here!

I am currently working on two wedding-dresses. But in addition to that I am also working on a 17th of May (Norway´s national day) banner for a local school. There are probably strict traditions on how to make these, and I will try to keep some of them, while just as eagerly try to re-new […]

making a fun-foam stamp

Monday, April 27th, 2009

I use stamps that I make out of fun-foam for different purposes.  They work well with fabric-paint on fabric, with acrylic on paper, and probably other surfaces as well. They are easy to make, and easy to use.  Below you can see the process, as I am make a stamp inspired by a decoration on […]

IF: Theatre

Monday, April 27th, 2009

I recently added another page to my blog called IF/journal. I´ve added lots of old pages that I´ve made in different books and journals, but found out today, that one couldn´t leave comments on that page, so I guess I´ll just have to post them here, and leave the older ones on that page. Anyway, […]

Earth Mosaic

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Info from the Earth Mosaic project:  “We all share this planet, and we’d like you all to share in this mosaic. And that leads us to what YOU can do now. The success of the project depends on getting hundreds of thousands of images. Each one represents your tiny block of our life on earth. […]

Kjerstins dress, part 2

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

I just had to post a couple more pictures of the black lace I am making for Kjerstins wedding dress. I was slightly nervous about the peacocks, but think it worked out nice. And it wasn´t as difficult as I feared.  I made a rough pattern on baking-paper… …pinned down the white, fine tulle I […]
