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.

Happy Halloween

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

I was hit by a witches spell in my back on Halloween. How ironic is that?! No pumpkins, no masks, no trick or treats, just a fall-colored hat knitted in between other chores. I usually make the patterns up as I go along, and am happy to share it with you. Wool-yarn for needles 6, […]

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is Spent. I immediately thought of the song”Angel Eyes”, which has been on my repertoire for years. It´s an old standard jazz-tune, maybe best known in Ella Fitzgerald´s recording. The lyrics say mispent, not spent, but weather time is well-spent or mis-spent, well, you don´t always know untill it´s too […]

Spel Johan, spel! poster

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

Yet another poster. This one I made for a local theatre-group about to present a cabaret over the past past 30 years of playful & joyful song, dance, music and acting.

Walk-in-workshop in graphics

Friday, October 29th, 2010

Part of the cultural week at our local Culture-house, was a walk-in wokshop in lino-cutting last night. Too tired to prepare properly, I just grabbed a photo a went for it. I had a hunch I was taking a chance on a portrait with such fine lines in a small piece of linoleum, about 10×15 […]

All I want for Christmas…

… is this AMAZING sandbox studio! Master of design, now working as an architect, Trond Atle Næsse made this house, amongst others as a part of his master-degree. He had a lecture last night, talking about this and other projects he´d been working with. It was so inspiring, he is just a well of brilliant […]

Reading the map

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

“Reading the map” is a picture I made for one of my returning customers, Neptun Maritime. It will be a gift for a newly-built supply ship, for which they did a major job.

Theatre model box

Monday, October 25th, 2010

I´ve decided I want to do more theatre-design or set-design. I thought I´d start by making a model or model-box of a B-stage. (Norwegian standard). So I took lots of measurements of the stage at my local culture-house, which happens to have a B-stage and got the materials. I would have loved to make the […]

We will rock you!

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Here is the poster I made for this fall´s choir-project. We´re working on Queen´s music, and will make a tribute-concert. Personally, I think it´s gonna ROCK! 🙂

Illustrations Friday´s theme is Racing, and here is a little weekend-painting from my journal. I found an old photograph online, that I looked at for inspiration. It´s a bit rough in edges and expression, not thoroughly worked-through, but I kind of like it anyway.
