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.

Long rainy summer days in a quiet office has some really good qualities to it. For one it means I get a lot done. Bringing out the watercolors, my sketches and then just diving into it.

Skandi Skansen

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

A brand new DOF supply vessel is about to be Christened. Yesterday I was at the Aukra Shipyard onboard the ship to get all the artwork on the walls and ready for sailing. Skandi Skansen is the name of the ship, and it is named after an old part of Bergen. Some of the motifs […]

business-card clean-up

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

I have a drawer filled with business cards from friends, and acquaintance. Especially after Artfest, I bring home a bundle of delightful cards, each with information about blogs and websites. It´s like a little treasure-chest all of it´s own. Except, lying in a drawer doesn´t do much good, does it? So I gathered them all, […]

20´s dress

Friday, June 24th, 2011

(There are still pins in it here, before it was completely finished) The fabric is a golden yellow polyester of a surprisingly good quality, […]

Friday, June 24th, 2011

Maybe this should have been a February Valentine post, but my philosophy is that receiving a heart in the mail is a good thing any time of the year. This is the easiest, most basic form of collage. Tearing out colored parts of magazines, and gluing it down on paper. No big art, just a […]

Today I´ve been in Haugesund, dressing up the two main actors in “Amanda” for a photo-shoot. This is Haugesund Theatre´s big musical this fall, newly written by the artistic director, Amalie Nilsen. The photo is for the poster, sorry I can´t show you any close-ups. Above you can see how many people it takes to get a […]

On my desk right now, is a little 1920s dress.

An English garden wedding

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

The local church is decorated for the big day. St Andrew´s was built in 680 (!!! And I thought Moster church was old…) I really like how active the English wedding service is. The bride and groom, have to promise repeatedly, and even the congregation has to promise to help them. “Sitting in an English […]
