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.

PF – The Face

Wednesday, September 30th, 2009

This is my first link to Photo Friday.  This weeks theme is The Face. Last year I started taking pictures of people, not just dead things like houses and boats. For my exhibition last year, I made a photo-series of about 20 of my friends and acquaintances, some of the creative people I admire and respect. […]

Anchors away!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

As part of a picture I am making for DOF, I need two anchors. The picture is paint on paper, but I decided to embroider the anchors. And I decided to take pictures along the process, so you can make your own embroidered lace or emblem. All sowing machines have an embroidery function, but it […]

This is a costume-design I made for a children´s musical for Haugesund Theatre last spring. This is a sketch of the sexy train-conductor. Her favorite shape in the world is the dot. Naturally. That´s what she does. Make dots, or holes, on the tickets. So that is of course the reason her clothes needs dots […]

Spider silk weaving

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

I just have to share with you this amazing piece of textile I just read about. This is an 11-foot long woven cloth made entirely from spider silk. The golden orb spider from Madagaskar makes a safron colored thread, and over a million (!) spiders participated in making this extraordinary weave. These are the true […]

Creative evening

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

My next-door neighbour and sister invited me and a friend over for an evening of plain-old-fun of creating. Even though summer is just over, she was already thinking about Christmas, and wanted to start making presents. Any reason to get together and create is a good reason 🙂 I had just bought some lovely beads […]

Sculptural Objects exhibition

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

Next Saturday, Bømlo Kunstlag (Bømlo Art Group), opens one of the fall-exhibitions: Sculptural Objects by Kari Aasen and Karina Herteig.  As usual I made the poster for the exhibition.

IF: Infinete

Friday, September 25th, 2009

Miracles – small and big – microcosmos and macrocosmos – infinately big and infinately small – infinately empty and infinately filled – divine and human – created in God´s image – a miracle – a life waiting to be lived and to wonder underneath the starsin infinaty – a miracle it is.   I made […]

IF – Welcome!

Friday, September 25th, 2009

Based on the opening song of “Cabaret!”, I started to work on the base for a poster for a pretend-production. I worked with a silouette of a classical Sally Bowles-figure, but decided to make a more personal version, with a picture of myself. It might not be too exciting texture-wise, but I prefer the personal […]

IMT – Plaid

Friday, September 25th, 2009

Another thing I made some years ago, back in 2005. For my first costume-design-job in a fully professional theatre, I worked with «12th night» by shakespeare. The director wanted a mordern version of the play, and for one of the costumes I made this kilt. (I know it´s not the best picture) I could of […]

What a relief! The technical problem is finally solved. Still a mystery WHAT and WHY it happened, but who cares, as long as it works again! Thank you so much Kim Stian at Quicknet Webdesign. You´re a gem!
