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.

Above is the latest in the painted Austevoll seahouse-series. Acrylcs on canvas and wood, 20x20cm. I´m thinking it´s a very big and light space in the middle here, and I really want to do something with it, just not sure what… Maybe it just needs more warmth? Actually I think I´m not loving it, because […]

another doily

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Inspired by this image I found here: I made my own version: Using a hand-crochet doily, adding a layer of metallic chiffon, and sewing it down on a pale moss-colored ribbon that ties in the back. And then adding a rather beautiful broach from Accessorize. And talking of chockers/neck-warmers (in lack of a better name), […]

If´s theme this week is immovable. I found a quote I liked “Build your house on immovable rock” which sounds very sensible. but then I found this chap, and he looked so sad, I just had give him a reason for his sorrows…

Swinging 50s

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

My sister came over to get some help with making a pattern for a dress, and while she was here, she helped me in fitting a couple of vintage dresses I got from Fretex (Salvation Army charity shop). It´s always a bit tricky fitting on yourself, so I was happy for the help! Both are […]

A bird-house

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

#8 on my list clearly states that I want to build a bird-house. However, I might cheat on this one, and re-decorate a bird-house I from my sister´s shop. Above is the original. And below is the first layers of color. It´ll be my weekend-project. I want to add some reds and pinks, maybe flowers […]

Anne, my bestest friend, wanted me to make a picture of her mother. Or precisely, she wanted us to make it 🙂 I gave her a gift-certificate for exactly that for her birthday, (ups, was that really last year?!) and today we finally got together. So here is #37 on my list: This is a […]

Christmas in summer

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

It certainly felt like Christmas, and I was getting all the gifts! It is so exciting to spend time with Marianne, my glass-making friend. She teaches me the coolest stuff! What do you get when you add glass… glass-beads… and a flaming blow-torch? You get beautiful beads, of course! Well, I think they are anyway! […]

Crochet scarf

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

I´ve understood that there has been some problems seeing all the pictures from my latest ship, Skandi Skolten. Explorer just didn´t want to show them, and using Safri myself, I wasn´t aware of it. I´ve learned a few new internet-things today, and hopefully the problem should be solved. Please let me know in the future […]
