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.

The princess and the pea…

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

This is a textile picture I made way back in 1998, I just found an old photo of it, looking for something else. It´s made for my cousin´s first-born. The motif is from a well-known fairy-tale, probably the Grimm-brothers, about a girl who was so picky, she tossed and turned and couldn´t sleep all night […]

Camera strap

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

Inspired by Michelle´s camera-strap, (she´s got a good tutorial!) I´ve been meaning to make one of my own for quite a while.  And since I now have a new camera, I finally got around to making one! I have leather on one side, and a mix of silks on the other. Having fun appliqueing  scraps of […]

A painted face

Saturday, November 20th, 2010

The head I made last week is dry, and today I painted it. I used DAS-clay, partly because it is easy to sculpt in, and partly because I really like the effect of paint on it. I´ve used acrylics here, mixed with matte medium, to make the colors see-through that way I can layer it […]

Winter way west rock-climbing!

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Bømlo is unique with it´s thousand islands scattered at the end of a big fjord, unique as in the only place in the world where this occurs. And just the other day I went on a motif-treasure-hunt with my camera on my favorite of all these islands! Well, it doesn´t look so big, does it. […]

Bømlo Art Group is once again ready for the annual Christmas Fair, or maybe exhibition is a better word. Here is the poster: And this is the location.

Haavik seahouse

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

This sea-house picture I made for one of my steady customers. It will be a gift for a ship on it´s Christening. It´s 50×75 cm, and the motif is from Håvik in Bømlo.

Bookbinding with the students

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

I started a new project with my soon-to-be-teachers today. Bookbinding. Oh, what fun! 10 students, lots of paper and fabric and GLUE!, 10 chocolate-bars (:-D) and 5 hours later 10 books emerged. Well, 12 books, since two of the students made an extra book each. I really like how Charlotte has played around with different […]

We will rock you

Monday, November 15th, 2010

Above is BML´s project-choir. (click for big!) This fall we´ve been working with Queen´s music. Two intense weekends, the last one was this weekend, and it ended with two concerts in Bømlo ‘Kulturhus. Two sold out concerts! A news-video from the local TV. Here you can also see some of my set-designs “live” 🙂 Several great […]

This is my sister Astri, behind the counter in the new location for her shop: Velkommen. (It´s in Holmefjord in Fusa, about an hour from Bergen, but she also runs an online interior-shop, if it´s too far to travel) She´s the kind of girl, who lives by the sign in her shop: Wish it – […]

Skandi Hercules

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

Yet another beautiful new-built ship for DOF. The name is Skandi Hercules, and the name inspired most of the pictures onboard here. In the mess: This is what they look like on the walls. And in the day-lounge the greek mythology-theme continues. On the wall, with windows into the mess. In the smokers lounge across […]
