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.

Arting at Michelle´s

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Where do I begin?! Maybe in Michelle´s wonderfully inspiring studio.  Everywhere you look, there is inspiration!  It is filled with creations, big and small, mainly Michelle´s work, and old vintage treasures.  Talking of which… On the way back from Artfest, we stopped at an antique-store to see if we could find some treasures to play […]

Artfest by night…

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

One of the best things about Artfest is the atmosphere, all the creative people. After the classes, meals and events in the day are done, we gather in the dorms, to sit and chat and journal. It´s a great way to make new friends, and share ideas. Here is Michelle, my dear friend I me […]

My Artfest journal

Tuesday, March 30th, 2010

I wanted to make a journal just for Artfest. Last year I got so many business-cards, MOO-cards and different types of trades that has just been lying around in my office, that I thought I´d gather it all in one place this year.  That way it is easy to find, and plays a decorative part […]

Artfest, day 3

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Another class I´d been looking forward to was Patricia Seggebruch´s Encaustic class. I was so caught up in the following the process, that I forgot to take a lot of pictures. We started of with priming a clayboard with wax. Different colors… My encaustic ATC for Patricia´s book-pr0ject. My eight samples. I loved the technique, […]

Artfest, day 2

Monday, March 29th, 2010

My second day at Artfest I was in Michael deMeng´s class. Wow! This was an awesome class, that´s got me very inspired. I had such fun with the assemblage, and loved the painting techniques. I really enjoy layering colors like he does. A bit like Michelle and I did on our  3-D project in October. […]

Artfest, day 1

Friday, March 26th, 2010

Well, I´m at ARTFEST. The party´s begun! This is 18-hours pr day of creating, so I won´t be posting much now, it will have to wait until afterwards. I simply don´t want to miss a thing. I´ve attended my first class with Jesse Reno, traded gifts,  journled in the evening, gotten paint under my nails, […]

San Francisco and Silicon Valley

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

San Francisco is one of the most beautiful, cleanest and greenest cities I´ve ever been to.   It´s like driving around in a park. Above are Angel Trumpets in Union Square. Mushroom season started two weeks ago. A specialty-shop at the wharf. Concrete jungle. A mural from Coit Tower, the memorial shaped as a fire-hose…! A cable-car […]


Monday, March 22nd, 2010

I am in San Francisco! I´ll tell about that tomorrow, right now I have enough juggling my jet-lag. So while you wait, why not fill the time by checking out Selvedge: Selvedge is my favorite magazine. With my textile arts´n crafts background, my currents jobs as a costume-designer and artist, with a general interest in […]

Thank you for the music!

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

No time for rest! This is the first of two BML choir-project weekends working with ABBA-songs. All from the musical “Mamma Mia!”. What fun is this for a girl who actually can remember ABBA singing at Eurovision in 1974! And since then have loved singing along. With or without a hair-brush as microphone 🙂 Ok. […]

Skandi Vega

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

DOF´s latest offshore supply ship is named Skandi Vega, and once again I was lucky enough to make the artwork for their new ship. It never ceases to amaze me when I come on board, what beautiful ships they build! I view my job as to try to make the ship a second home for […]
