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.

silk skirt

Friday, December 31st, 2010

My finishing project Thursday was a silk skirt that´s been lying around for at least six years waiting for me to get a zipper in and hem it. Well, now it´s done. All hand-sewing today, to get it just perfect. I like to hand-sew every now and then. And in any case, it´s easier to […]

snakeskin corset

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Wednesday´s project up for finishing was a rather exotic one: a water-snake skin corset! I ordered the skin about four years ago, and started making the corset then, and as with many other projects, I come to a busy period of work, it´s set aside, and I tend to forget as new and exciting projects […]

#1 I´ve already done: been out skiing. #2 Last night we were invited outside over at the neighbors for grilling. Yes, you read right. Grilling in the snow. I strapped on my skies, skied the full 15 meters over to their house, unstrapped and got (relatively) cosy in the snow. They had fired up the […]

Finishing projects-week

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

#5 on my list is finishing one project a day for a week. I´ve got so many projects half-done! Maybe the week between the holidays are the best time for getting stuff done? I´ll give it a go, and see how it turns out…. Monday: I painted my window frame turquoise! When I bought my […]

Inspiration: Brian Wallace

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

I´ve told you about Brian Wallace before, but thought it was high time I made an inspiration-post on him. Originally from the States, but has lived in Haugesund for a coupe of decades already. He teaches painting, and that´s how I finally got to know him by attending one of his workshops. A lot of […]

Technical problems

Monday, December 27th, 2010

Due to some rather annoying technical problems I don´t understand, I have probably been pestering any of you out there with RSS-feed. I´ve been trying to update a post, that just refuses to take all the text with it. I am sorry for the inconvenience, hopefully I´ll figure it our somehow.

food for thought

…or book-necklace. I want this one to be special, so I´m bringing out the good stuff for this one! Here I´ve started on the cover. I´m using a petroleum-blue dyed water-snake skin. Fast forward a couple of days later, and the book is finished. The pages are made from handmade, grey paper. Adding a few special […]
