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 – focused

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is Focused. I found this quote, that I really liked, on a quote-site. I think the quote could just as well be for women, but traditionally, I guess it´s a masculine virtue to be focused on one thing at a time, while women are supposedly able to think of several […]

Paint on wood. Second picture. 2

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Another day of painting and listening.  New audio-book. This time there are crime-scenes both in Sweden and London. Young gay boys being killed. And several heros are trying to solve the case.  I´m not liking the greyish-red wall in the background, it´s way too heavy. Even though I´m not finished with it, I want to […]

One World, One heart!

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Lisa Swifka created this event in 2007. The original idea behind this giveaway event was to bring bloggers together from around the world who may never ordinarily meet. Since then it´s become a huge thing, with over 900 participants last year, this year even more, I´m sure.  I´m a little late joining the event, but […]

BMLs project-choir poster

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

This is actually more interesting for local people in Sunnhordland as pure information, than as an art-post. It´s one of the projects I´m working on, a project-choir, who over two weekends will be rehearsing ABBA-songs, and at the end of the second weekend, have a concert.

A Raven´s love

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

My friend Michelle just launched her new line of clocks and piggy-banks. Visit her site and see some of her new yummy stuff. You can even buy some of her things via her site. Although most of her line is sold in stores most all over the world, pretty much. Not in Norway, yet, as […]

Paint on wood. Second picture.1

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

Well, here we go again. Second part of the big picture. Acrylics on wood. I´m still nervous. Maybe because this time the people on the picture are the man who commisioned it, his mother and her friend. A family-portrait, so to say.  What trick have I found to solve this? I listen to audio-books. Right […]

This is a totally ironic piece, as women (usually) are far safer drivers than men! 🙂

For Bømlo Art group, I made this little poster, which hopefully will draw local artists on all levels from amateur to professionals, to join in our annual Amateur-exhibition. It will be open for a month this summer, and the theme this year is WATER.  The deadline for signing up for the exhibition is March 15th. […]

Woolen delight

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

It´s been a cold winter. As you all know. I am always a bit disappointed at the winter-collections in the shops. So many lovely sweaters, and so few of them in wool. Acrylics doesn´t make me too happy, and it certainly doesn´t make me warm. So when I saw this lovely 100% wool tweed-jersey fabric […]

Costume workshop for Trollskogen Theatre 2

Monday, January 25th, 2010

It´s been such a fun and busy weekend! In addition to working with the costumes for charlie and the Chocolate Factory, we had sessions on design, pattern-making, overlocking, do´s and don´t´s, aging/distressing costumes, to mention some.  Here the ladies are busy at the sewing machines. The designer who told us on Friday evening that she […]
