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.

Nothing puts my thoughts about life in perspective like watching a National Geographic program about space. Be it the moon-landing, dark energy, how space was created from nothing and expanded to infinity in a split second. How can I illustrate that in a good way though? This quote by Aldous Huxley really got to me, […]

The truth… honestly!

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

Well, thanks for all your comments, and qualified guesses. I´ve been told that the success to a good lie, is to keep as close to the truth as possible. With that said, I´ll guide you through the jungle of truth and lies. 1. My family though my grand-uncle Andy was dead, lost in WW2, until […]

More woolen delight

Sunday, February 28th, 2010

We´ve officially made a record on the islands, of the longest period of snow without rain in between. Every now and then it snows some more, and we still have about 30-40 cm. Anyway. With all this snow, one needs to keep warm. And for the first time in quite a while, I´ve found my […]

Here is a picture I made for Eidesvik Offshore ASA. They needed a present, and I am always happy when they ask me to help them.  The recipient is from Oma in Hordaland, and that is also where this old boat-house is.

Wow! I got an award! Thank you so much Andrew! It´s my first award ever, so I´m extra honored.

Here is one of his pictures: Here are […]

What happened to my wooden pictures? I delivered them last week, and the grand opening of the “new” café Frugård, in Leirvik, Stord. It´is an old bakery and café with a long tradition. The owner wanted to renew and remodel, but still keep the same good atmosphere. The place now looks pretty amazing, with vintage […]

Yesterday was another intense day by the sewing machine. The girls DID NOT want to go shopping until they were finished with their onepiece jumpins! Karoline spent extra time on her onepiece, lining it with the yummiest micro-teddy-bear fabric on the inside. She also wanted her special “brand” on her onepiece, and machine-embroidered (free-hand) all […]

Family-weekend at the sewing-machine

Sunday, February 21st, 2010

Karoline is here, and she brought a friend. They´re being really productive each making their own one-piece-jumpin. Karoline concentrated over the sewing machine. Andrea and her one-piece in the making. I really wanted to sew something too, so I bought some funky fabric at Stoff & Stil yesterday, that now has turned into this little […]

Kreativitet avlar kreativitet… Creativity propagates […]
