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.

Arting at Michelle´s day 2

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

A new day at the top of the stairs. All the coolest Arting-ladies around came! Lulu working on her amazing trades. Can you believe, she´s making no less than a hundred dolls, and these still have loads more embellishment to come. She is just crazy cool! The never-resting Deirdra with her beautiful porcelain-like dolls. They´re […]

Arting at Michelle´s day 1

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

The day´s adventure started in Alberta street. Meeting a bunch of other artists, some coming to Artfest, others not, but all met up at Collage, the art-store in the artsy part of Portland. Lunch with the arting-ladies! At the best home-made French food restaurant in Alberta. Portland is known as the greenest city in the […]

I´m back in the States. For the 13th (my 4th) and last Artfest. I flew in to Portland today, to spend some days with my adopted American family: the Allens. Michelle, her husband, her two girls, her parents and her in-laws; they all make me feel so welcome! I´m way too tired to be doing […]

The poster I made for Bømlo Children- and Youth Theatre Group´s  staging of HAIR. It´s one of my favorite musicals, maybe because I was so involved and worked so hard with staging it in 1996.

Viking Prince

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Today is the big day: the Christening of Viking Prince! Eidesvik AS´s new supply-ship.I have made about half of the art onboard, and am very proud to present it to you. The other half  was made by 16 children in the 6th grade at Hasund School and I presented their work yesterday here. So let me take […]

Kid´s art onboard Viking Prince

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Viking Prince is Eidesvik´s new supply ship. The Christening is tomorrow, but there is so much art onboard this ship, I´ll show you some of it already today 🙂 Remember I told you about the 6th grade at Hasund School where I had a couple of days teaching them how to mix colors and paint […]

traveling across fjords and mountains

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

“Climb every mountain, cross every sea… ” Isn´t there a song that goes something like that? National Geographics ranked the Norwegian fjords as the #1 travel-destination in the world a few years ago. And even thought it´s looking a bit grey in the picture above, I think it actually looks kind of stunningly beautiful myself. […]

brass & copper bracelet

Monday, March 19th, 2012

The result of my late-Sunday-night creative project: A copper and brass metallic bracelet. With beads of metal, glass, pearl and mother-of-pearl. The big round bead is a raku-fired pottery-bead, with the most beautiful metallic shine in the texture.

Purple alpaca and stars

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Another little jumper for Edvard, my nephew. Thick, purple fair-trade alpaca yarn, hand-dyed and hand-spun, makes the base for this tiny sweater. I added three stars with white fabric paint and a stamp. They might be a tad big, but they do add some fun to the otherwise very plain sweater. It truly is so […]

These past days I´ve been framing and packing, getting ready for a new big art-delivery. And spending time with my new nephew. 🙂
