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.

Wonderful Wimbledon

Monday, June 20th, 2011

That is Wimbledon College of Art. Sorry. No tennis in this post. This college offers one of the probably three best costume-design educations in the world. My good friend Stephanie Selmayr took me along to their degree-show. What a treat!  Not only the costume-design (below) and costume-interpretation, (above) but also the set-design, the performance-design, and […]

The first time I visited London I was 15. Since the age of 25 I´ve come back on average about twice a year. London lives up to the saying: If you´re tired of London, you´re tired of life. There is always something going on here, always something to see, hear, experience, discover. All these visits, […]

round stuff

Friday, June 17th, 2011

… or why shipyards are one of my favorite places to go on photo-safari! I wasn´t even planning on looking for round things. There is a treasure-chest of shapes, textures and colors to be found there.

Screening metal

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

I tried something new today! (Oh, I love that sentence!) Inspired by a couple of my students, I got hold of medium for silkscreen-printing. So now I´ve actually made some silkscreen printed metal pictures. Small, but kind of cool anyway. I used the same screen I used for the bread-bags, with the picture of one […]

I´ve always wondered how one adds videos to the posts, but have never gotten it to work. This is a little test… Does anyone know of good tutorials on how to make little ones own little videos like this, and then post them?  

The Moster festival

Sunday, June 12th, 2011

Lots of things going on this weekend, I´ve been busy at Moster, working as a volunteer. First was the opening of a new museum:  Steinriket Bømlo (The rock-kingdom of Bømlo. But it is a wordplay and can also mean: loaded rich Bømlo!) The museum itself I´ll have to get back too, so very interesting, but […]

This weekend is the big historic play weekend. Mostraspelet is a show from the years 995-1030, when a lot of significant stuff happened on my little island. Norway was Christened from here, when the new king arrived after growing up in England, and declared that he was the one, true king of Norway (which he […]

Bremnes Seashore reception

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

I´ve made a commissioned art piece for Bremnes Seashore´s reception area. Today I could finally deliver the three pictures. The first one is made of salmon skin that I´ve dyed and sewn. The second one is a big photo-collage printed on see-through plastic, and incorporated between two pieces of plexi-glass. The third one is made […]

Rebecca´s bum

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Rebecca, one of my teacher-college-students made this for her FOU-exam. The project and the exhibition is now over, and I bought this raku-ceramic piece from her. Isn´t it beautiful?! I´d love to learn the technique of raku (how do I spell that in English, anyone knows?). But until that day, I can look at my […]
