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: Magnify

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Just a quick collage for If, to get the creative flow started this Monday. I was thinking about a radio-program I heard some years ago, about the first time ever the police convicted someone for a crime by comparing fingerprints from the crime-scene with every single male inhabitant in a certain area. A village in […]

Celebrate September!

Sunday, August 30th, 2009

1. Bake a big, giant batch of cookies.  Bring them to your neighbors “just because”. 2. Rearrange your furniture in one room.  3. Go to the dollar store and get a miniature manicure set.  Surround yourself with candles and good music, soak your feet and give yourself a pedicure.  Paint your toenails a color that knocks your socks […]

Color me purple!

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

After a couple of weeks working intensely on my Mac, I needed to do something different, not to stiffen completely in all muscles. So we decides to re-decorate the stairway-room. My house is rather colorful already, but none of the rooms are purple. And purple, being the color that sparks creativity, just needed to be […]

a new home for my seahorse

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

It seems like it. Like my seahorse is about to get a new home. Some nice people are coming to see him tomorrow. If they like each other, he might move straight away. He doesn´t really have a lot of luggage.  As long as he can continue to tell those creaky-freaky tales of the sea […]

Those were the days, my friend

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Today I am working on a big picture, taking a lot of time, and I took a little break to make something quick to encourage myself. The crispness of the colors, the summer-sun, the sandy beach and the blossoming flowers, what could be better to soothe the mind?

IF: Caution

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

Woman as a demonic temptress who needs to cover herself up not to provoke men, or woman as a pornographic sex-object who needs to undress to tempt men… the “ideal” is different, but both define women according to men and mens lust. How about defining women for just what they are: human beings with thoughts […]

Sky&Sea festival

Saturday, August 22nd, 2009

At a local festival called Sky & sea (Himmel og Hav), I´ve been asked to exhibit some of my pictures. I chose some of my older ones who had motifs from this area, in addition to some of my newest, collages made with metal and found objects. The exhibition-area is a kindergarden, so not exactly […]

portrait eraser-stamp

Friday, August 21st, 2009

Last night, instead of watching TV, I wanted to try out something. Earlier in the day a friend had called me, asking if I could do a quick workshop on stamp-making. Usually I make them in fun-foam, and they are quite big. This time I wanted to try something different. I bought an eraser, the […]

new season, new book, new screen

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

It feels like fall is her. The temperature is the highest it´s been all summer, but still it feels like a new season is about to start. The energy and enthusiasm for new projects is coming back. I have just started a new calender-book yesterday, this time with much more muted colors. The last one […]
