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.

Brage Trader

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Brage Suppliers new supply-ship is called Brage Trader. It´s been built in India, and I just sent down three big wooden boxes of art to decorate the ship.

The Art-talk

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

In January, the interior magazine Rett Hjem (wordplay for right home and strait home) visited me, took loads of photos and interviewed me. It was a bit nerve-tickling to invite an actual interior-magazine into my home, but in a good way 🙂 The art-talk is in Norwegian, click the picture, if you want to read;-)

Elephants! Elephants, elephants, elephants! As far as the eye can see! I think I started this embroidery project 10-15 years ago, and guess what? I´m finally finished!

The soul of music

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

This weekend I´ve enjoyed others´ creativity, being hostess for the Motown-project band. They are such good musicians, the soul music is SO cool, and it´s gonna be such a great concert! Very much looking forward to our concerts in 2 weeks time. They rehearsed at the theatre, right next to my little office, so I […]

This makes me happy!

At 43 I sometimes feel, well, not old, but not really young either, but seeing the wonderful women on this blog, makes me smile, thinking: where […]
