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.

Inspiration: Guy Laramee

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

This week´s inspiration is Canadian Sculptor and painter Guy Laramee. His recycled-books-turned-into-art is truly amazing! Visit his site and be blown away by immaculate details in his landscape-sculptures. “So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit […]

The Art-black-board is in place and officially opened!

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

  Yay! It´s in place! The big (heavy!) black board is in place, and today it was officially opened. On the side is a mailbox with chalk and a guestbook in it. And on the side is a bench to rest on after walking in the woods. Hopefully this will bring joy to all the […]

the big black-board

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

  I´ve told you about Kjøpholmen and about the draugr. We still have one more art-in-nature-project in the making. This time it´s a big black-board to be placed near a new wood-trail in a very trafficated area. I´v been there a couple of Sundays, and litterary hundreds of people go there. Serious work-out people training, […]

the ICEresin-silk necklace

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

A little late-nite arting resulted in this necklace made from sari silk, rayon ribbon, plastic, ICEresin and some metal beads. The middle part is see-through.

the Morning Post

Monday, June 11th, 2012

Liam, the son of my friend I was staying at in Oslo, and his friends (all 10 years old) have made this wonderful newspaper! Lucky me, getting a copy before leaving, so I had something to read in the airport 🙂 The boys were given an old typewriter, and that is what got the journalistic […]

Flight 2012 program

Sunday, June 10th, 2012

Last night was the opening night of FLIGHT 2012, a culture-school dance show. Wow, there are some pretty good dancers here! 150 kids on stage participating, everything was set in an airport. I was fortunate enough to make the program for the show. In addition to presenting the numbers and the dancers for the audience, […]

copper coins in cement!

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Today was the big day! The day, when we gathered on Kruneneset quay, took the boat over to Kjøpholmen with 6 big bags of cement, 50 kilos(!) of copper coins, good food and simply got to work! The first square foot, learning by doing! And talking about learning: I have never worked with cement before, […]

Inspiration: Sandy Martin

Friday, June 8th, 2012

I met Sandy Martin at Artfest this year. She´s a colorful & wonderful jewelry-artist from Santa Fe, USA. An energy-explosion of a woman! I am so lucky, I just got two little miniature art girls from her. One of them will go in my little gallery-pendant-book. The other one I´ll put on my inspiration-board. Don´t […]

Be wise

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Be wise, because the world need more wisdom. And if you cannot be wise, pretend that you are someone who is wise and then just behave like they would! I am sorry to admit that I forgot my Mac at home before I left for Oslo, so I have nowhere to upload photos, and tell you […]

big black bag

Monday, June 4th, 2012

Today´s quick creative project: Sew a BIG bag for my portfolio. Linen on the outside, cotton on the top and as one of the handles, and a flossy cotton as the lining. Can you see the hint of a face on the fabric? A little freestyle embroidery black tread on black fabric. The portfolio is […]
