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.

Wine cork bulletin board

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

This is my wine-cork bulletin-board that hans in my kitchen. I don´t drink a lot of wine, so it took me years to collect all the corks! I did ask around, and had several friends “making sacrifice”s on my behalf, to contribute with some of the corks 🙂 Even colleagues of my Dad sent me […]

Here is a picture I made in 2002. It is all machine embroidery on silk. I made a bigger one for a ship, about twice this size, and took me two weeks straight of machine-sowing, 6 hours a day. (Except for the face and hands and gold-background). I had to take breaks so the sowing-machine […]

Top-secret camera case

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

I found this fun project over at Photojojo. There is a complete step-by-step guide on how to make it.  It’s highly useful for tricking enemy spies into believing you are a harmless bookworm instead of the undercover photo ninja that you are. He, he…

Going to Paris!

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

I am just about to head out the door, leaving for Paris. I have pre-scheduled some posts for the following week, but I not sure if it is going to work. So if you don´t hear from me for a while, it´s because I am enjoying the warm summer days in Paris.  And that is […]

Midsummers night

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

Since it is the day of the year with the shortest night, but a night filled with superstition about witches, I´ll post a picture from “Which witch”. The tradition in Norway is to celebrate this evening by making big bon-fires. In Denmark, they also take the time to make a life-size, human figure posing as […]

a good day for a sea-horse

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Today I´ve been creative on so many levels. Painting, cutting and glueing. Experimenting with framing. Finding a home for my sea-horse. Planting a hedge in the garden. Making a info-poster. Making plans for a new commision. Blogging. I even made dinner. Twice. (Although it wasn´t all that fancy).  Don´t you just love days that are […]

giraffes… and My wish for you!

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

If you are a bit bored and want to participate in a little project: draw a giraffe, and e-mail it to here. This guy is trying to collect one million giraffes by 2011.  But no matter what you do, you should definetly check out Aimee´s site. She´s just finished a major job, making illustrations for the […]

IF: Drifting driftwood

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

Precious moments Life is here Enjoy now _____________________ This is my favorite piece of driftwood that was decorating my entrance, but got a new life as an art-piece onboard Viking Vision. Below is the whole piece.  I think it is too easy sometimes to just drift along, and see what life offers you, instead of […]
