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.

IF: contagious

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Illustration Fridays challenge this week is “Contagious”. Instead of getting to caught up in the swine-flu, I thought about a positive version. In my favorite movie “The fabulous Amelie from Montmartre” one of the main characters collects funny laughs. Just the kind of weird thing I like 🙂 And I find it to be true, […]

My sister Astri has just opened an online interior shop: Velkommen! And what good is an interior without art!? So now she is selling a couple of my pictures. (The copyright sign isn´t on the original of course, but you knew that, didn´t you 🙂 ) These are part of an Eastern inspiration-series. It is […]

Mariannes dress finished

Monday, May 18th, 2009

After a couple of rounds with hand-stitching, I am now finished with Mariannes wedding dress. She was here last night for her final fitting, and now everything is in place. I am so looking forward to seeing (and posting) pictures of her from her wedding, when the dress is on her, and not on a […]

The 17th of May is Norway´s independence day. The main ingredients in the celebration are:  big parades of children and families in national-costumes (bunad), waiving flags, shouting “Hurra!”  marching to the bands,  and afterwards games and lots of ice-cream and chocolate and hot-dogs. I posted some pictures below of  the traditional costumes. This is what […]

My friend Amalie got married this weekend. So this days creative input is a bit different than usual. I am not known for being creative in the kitchen, but this night I learned something new 🙂 Friday night Amalies brides-maid invited to a different kind of last-minute bachelorette-party. She booked a gourmet-chef, bought lots of food, […]

Indian meditation


Friday, May 15th, 2009

My very talented and beautiful sister Astri owns an interior- and gift shop in Fusa. She is now opening a web-shop as well. She has a lot of really nice things, some elegant, some cozy, some chic. One of my favorite things from her shop is my robe. It is so soft and warm! It´s a Barefoot […]

treasures in the mail

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Don´t you just hate it, when you´ve been working on something for hours, and then you make one small mistake, and you have to do the whole job all over again?!  BUT: I had the most wonderful snail-mail-day. My postbox had 8(!) packages in it! (And only one bill 🙂 ) That has just never […]

These days I am in Vietnam in my head, trying to get into the feel of the last days of the Vietnam war, to be able to visualize the costumes of Miss Saigon. I am almost done with the designs, after working on them for months. Searching the internet, books, old magazines, films, etc. the […]
