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.

One of my favorite holiday-self-portraits, taken in Egypt two years ago.

Celebrate August!

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

1. Write limericks just for fun. Begin each one with “There once was a girl named _______” or “There once was a town called ______”. Go around the dinner table and have each person make up a limerick for themselves or the person next to them. 2. Pick up garbage when you see it on the ground. […]

Cosy kitchen

Wednesday, July 29th, 2009

You know that your life is busy, when all you wish for is some time at home to clean house, and have a cozy day in the kitchen with the family making a good meal….

The war isn´t over when it ends

Sunday, July 26th, 2009

Today was the opening of the 2009 Amateur-exhibition in Bømlo Culturehouse. I´ve been working with this since February, and it´s always nice to land a project. The exhibition is going to be open until August 15th, and there are 29 artists collaborating in this showcase. I have a corset in here, but you can´t see […]

A meditative picture of my friend Mari Janne. I made printed and painted this picture for Viking Poseidon, but I don´t think I´ve shown it before. I thought it might be good with a calm picture in these hectic times.

Crochet inspiration!

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

Through CRAFT I was presented to this very interesting artist: Jo Hamilton. She crochets in a way I didn´t know was possible! The most fascinating are her portraits of people: Do take the time to pop over to her web-site and have a look at all of her incredible portraits. They are just awesome!

Heart of glass

Inspire Me Thursday´s theme this week is Glasses. And this is the collage I made, a collection of fashion, felons, fragile and flasks… (well, not really flasks, but the words go better together with flask than bottles)

Book-signing event!

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

I had a completely differnt type of summer-job today! I was contacted by a publisher last week, asked to arrange an event around a book-signing at the release of one of their books. I brought two young actors with me, dressed them up in costumes, and we gave away free books for an hour in […]

IF – tango

Sunday, July 19th, 2009

“It´s the red shoes, they can´t stop dancing!” is a quote from Kate Bush´s song from the CD The red shoes. Her song is inspired by an old movie also called “The red shoes” about a ballerina who is tricked into putting on a pair of magical red ballet-shoes. They make you dance like never […]

IF Hollow Gold

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

I know now that this is the wrong lyrics for “Bette Davis eyes”, but for almost thirty years I firmly believed the lyrics were “Her head is hollow gold” when actually it is “Her hair is Harlowe gold”… So I don´t know if it is my hearing that is bad, or if it is Kim […]
