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.

I finished my doll. She insisted that she was a trapeze-acrobat, so I had to turn her arms around, and give her something to hold on to. At the same time she claimed that she always wanted to be a ballerina, and that she couldn´t perform properly without a tutu. Her arms are now twisted […]

Hey ho and a bottle of rum!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

I come home from a long journey, and what do I see? A package awaits for me! Yo-ho, and a bottle of rum! It´s me pirate-hat! From now on you can just call me Captain! Kjersti made this salty treasure for me. She´s in her final year as a milliner, and this leather-hat is the start […]

Technical problems

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

I´ve been having technical problems on my blog the last couple of days. Now it´s back up and running again, but I´ve just lost my last fifteen posts (with comments), which is relatively annoying. Hopefully I´ll get them back, we´re working on it.

March goody give-away winner

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

I know this is very late, but I needed to come back home, so I had all the “comment-leavers” in one place. The winner of the March Goody give-away is Inger Marie Sæverud She´s a local, very talented silver-smith. Unfortunately she doesn´t have a blog, but you might be able to see some of her […]

My last day in Chicago

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

My last day in Chicago, I´ve spent walking. Downtown, shopping-district, contemporary photo-exhibitions… I wasn´t sure about what Chicago had to offer and googled  for “must-sees”. I got a list of five: 1. Shopping on the Magnificent Mile (Michigan Ave.) … well, I did my shopping on State Ave. (awesome art-supply-store!) but did walk along Michigan […]

More Chicago

Monday, April 12th, 2010

Chicago is all about music, isn´t it? We did our own version. John, Birgitte´s boyfriend, plays cello in a melanc-pop-ical-band, and Saturday night they had a gig at the Purple Otter (!). It was a charity-thing for a friend trying to fund a low-budget movie. (Which I think is a brilliant idea). Anyway. The band […]

More IF-linked

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

I liked this quote so much,I had to make another IF-entry. Some favorite photos are put together in this collage, from the US, India and Norway. I wanted to intergrate a snake-spine I found in Paris too, but that photo is on my home-machine, so I had to do with an found illustration. ____________________________________________________ Erin […]

IF – linked

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

This week´s theme at IF is Linked, and when I googled for quotes, I found this one about Chicago. Since this is where I am this weekend, I thought it might be good to have a go at it. The photos are taken today, in the neighborhood of my friend: Andersonville. We´ve been visiting vintage-shops and even found […]


Saturday, April 10th, 2010

I arrived to Chicago yesterday. I´ve been reading Barack Obama´s “Dreams from my father” on this trip in the US, and I am now in the same city he is (so far in the book). I´m staying at my friend Birgitte´s. She´s studying fashion-design at Colombia College, and gave me quick tour of the department. We […]
