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.

new passport-purse

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Here is an excert of my new passport-purse. I call them that, but use them everyday for everything else but the passport. They are really practical, go over the head and one shoulder, so they are never in the way. Just big enough for cards, money, a mobile phone and keys. And a compact-camera if […]

flower-power

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Today I´ve spent the day helping my dear friend Anne: her youngest son Joakim  had his confirmation today, and all his relatives came to celebrate. He´s a cool kid, had his band come over, and they performed for all the guests. I helped out with the flower-arrangements, which is an all-time-favorite-party-arrangement-preparation for me.  I used […]

IF-Parade

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

Just a late-night water-color doodle this week. “Parade” is not really a favorite word, and didn´t spark off any brilliant happy-thoughts.

Photoshop-classes

Friday, May 8th, 2009

I´ve had a photoshop for beginners class in my local high-school for a couple of days after Easter.  They were all given the task of making illustrations for a “Dictionary of Mythological Creatures”. Today was the final day, and I wanted to share a couple of the students work. Some were funny, some were scary. […]

Kjerstins skirt

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

I´ve been sowing black lace for Kjerstins skirt the past days, so much I kept putting pieces together in my sleep 🙂 The work has paid off, and I am now just about as far as I can be, before she comes for her next fitting. I think it is turning out quite cool, and […]

tulle!

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

I am so lucky! My baby-sister Randi, who happens to be my next-door neighbour,  also sows, and luckily she wanted to help me out this weekend, by making this tulle-skirt for Kjerstins wedding-dress. Kjerstin herself had pre-cut the fabric, and Randi used no less than 160 meters(!) of tulle in this skirt. Its the funniest […]

Mariannes dress in the making

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

The most special feature on Mariannes dress is the waist-band. In this 4 inch/12 cm wide band, she wants two mountains, at least one boat, her family, her friends, her pearls, and maybe a dandy-lion.  So after dreaming about it for a couple of weeks, I think I came up with a pretty good idea. […]

17.mai fane!

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

Yesterday I finished the banner for the National day. This weekend I will bring it to the school who commisioned it, where they have a special wooden frame to carry it on/with. Anyway, here are pictures of the front and back: The front has the background of Siggjo, our (almost volcanic) mountain, with the landscape […]

Mariannes-heart

… just a little sneak-peak at part of the belt on Mariannes wedding-dress… Will tell more later 🙂

IF: Hierarchy

Sunday, May 3rd, 2009

God is love Religion is man-made These are 6 big broaches I made in India last year in a jewelry-workshop. I originally intended to use them as part of some costumes, but there was a change of plans and they were never used. They are made of glass, beads, mirror-parts, glitter, silver and resin. And […]
