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.

Thanksgiving and give thanks

Thursday, November 26th, 2009

Thanksgiving is a wonderful tradition, that hasn´t reached Norway yet. The soul of Thanksgiving is is the name: to give thanks, to be grateful all the things we´ve got.
