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.

From brightly shining and brand new copper… to hand-drawn runes (these are on brass) and oxidization. Layered and ready for the final details. I think this is gonna turn out not bad at all 🙂

the little viking

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Starting with a red-painted, wooden background and acrylic paint and medium, starting to block out the bigger shapes.

 “New will – new days… new stroke/grasp – new dreams” A picture made for my friend in the occasion of her mother´s 60th birthday. ____________________________________________________________ Yes, Linda, you are right!

Making trades

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

A quiet and warm family weekend with Karoline. Working on an assignment about stars and radiation, and me trying to follow (she knows so much!). Well, while she was reading & writing, I was working on my trades for Artfest. Guess once! (Sorry, you just get one option!)

the Motown concert

Monday, March 5th, 2012

From the concert yesterday. After a full weekend of rehearsals, sound-checks, all sorts of getting-things-in-place, we had two concerts last night. Everyone dressed up to look the part. Such fun music, such high hairstyles, such 60s glam! And a wonderful audience! A backstage-peek. All dressed up, I just had to post this photo of me and […]
