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.

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

I have a secret! A sweet and wonderful secret! … but I am willing to share it 🙂 I am going back to Artfest, and this time I am going to teach! Next April, Teesha is once again hosting Artfest. I applied to teach a workshop, and got accepted. Yay! I am so happy! Seriously […]

A new treasure chest

Saturday, June 5th, 2010

Look at this beauty my friend Amiti gave me! A couple of years ago I saw it at her house, and complimented her on it. It´s got such nice proportions and a yummy color. On the lid there is a metal sign that states that it belongs to a music-group. Or band, really. So now […]

Fig box lid

Friday, June 4th, 2010

My friend Sid suggested I added something to the front of the box, like an oasis image. Of course! What a brilliant idea! I am so happy when you guys send me suggestions. So, first, I mix a nice dessert color… naples yellow, white, deep azo yellow and warm grey mixed with medium to make […]

Checking off on my 41-list

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

I just read through my 41-list. I´m half-way through the year, and should be half-way through the list… ups.. I´m not. 15 out of 41. I´ll have to do something about that! 17. Send anonymous gifts to 3 people. I found them randomly by pointing blindly in the phone-book. Luckily I had a friend over who […]

Fig box

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Here is another wooden box I found in my attic. I bought this one a couple of years ago at a charity shop. It says fig on the lid, but somehow I´ve thought it was for cigars. Anyone recognize the brand and can tell me? It did smell kind of funky when it got wet… […]

Celebrate June!

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

1. Today is both Kids day in Russia and Dinosaur day in the USA. A perfect combination if you ask me! Take the kids to a dinosaur-museum, or go play dinosaurs in the jungle-forrest-backyard. 2. Go fishing! 3. Make a collection of small line-drawings. Buy some henna-powder and oil to make a temporary tattoo from your […]

The belt is finished. Below you can see an old photo of the original dresses for two of the guides in Moster Amfi.  The dress-model is based on a traditional viking-pattern. You can hardly see it, but there is a broach on their belts. These are copies of an old golden viking broach found on […]
