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.

Bergen ´round midnight

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

The second picture in the Bergen-by-night-series. This is by “Klosteret”, on the way west towards Nordnes. This photo was actually taken right around midnight. It was a lot darker, but my camera was brand new, and I had just learned how to use long exposure.  

Bergen: smug by night

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

“Smug” is a norwegian word for a very narrow city-street. This is the first in a series of pictures I made around the theme Bergen by night. Bergen is the second largest city in Norway. But it´s probably got the largest personality 😉

Deco & silk

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Pretty chaotic with 40 kids queueing almost on top of each other after rehearsal. Some are new to theatre, while others are almost veterans despite their […]

Yep, that´s me, taking a hat-measurement. Over the weekend, I´ll have about 80 more people to measure. And then it´s time to pull out the sewing machine 🙂 Click on the picture, and it will take you to an article in Haugesunds avis.

Today was the first day of rehearsals on “Amanda”. All the actors were there, the production-team, the administration, the musicians, everyone. Well, almost everyone. Not the ensemble of about 80… So good to meet old friends, and new. After the first read-through, it was time to meet the press. Which is when I seized the […]
