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.

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

the growth-tower

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Since it´s only a couple of days till launching-time, I´ll let you in on a secret: I´ve made a growth-chart. Or growth-tower 🙂 Using the light-tower painting I made a couple of weeks ago, I´ve had it printed onto PVC with a centimeter-measure on the side. I´ve only printed a few, to see how people […]

Lady of Orange

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

The Lady of Orange, I belive is a real title in England. I´ve been listening to Englsih history lessons while making my ladies, albeit about a different subject than nobility… 10×10 cm (4×4 inches), hand-painted cotton, applique and freestyle machine embroidery.

Astrika, the aqua star

Astrika, which means star in greek, if I´m not mistaken, is this lady´s name. 10×10 cm (4×4 inches) hand-painted cotton, applique and freestyle machine embroidery. With a touch of glitter 😉

The Lady Lime chair

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

The Lady Lime has gotten her glittery lime eyeshadow on, and she´s landed comfprtably on the seat of a chair. The chair is an old wooden antique, over a hundred years old, I think it´s oak. The seat is hand-painted cotton, with applique and freestyle machine embroidery. One of the legs were a bit loose, […]

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Work in progress. By tomorrow, when the glitter is dry, and she´s got some color in her face, she´ll be going to town 😉

black torso

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

A while back I got two female torsos from a local fashion-shop. The owner was going to throw them away, and I asked if I could buy them. Lucky me, I got them for free! They are about to go on tour with me, helping me out at the market. But before doing that, they […]

the spiral dress

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

A new dress made this afternoon. It´s in a coal-grey, 100% cypro, which is a kind of polyester, but with a beautiful fall. Here shown without a belt, which it does define the body-shape a lot better. The design on the front is a little piece of velvet cloth. I made it years ago, trying […]
