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.

Happy Halloween

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Sharing a picture from the stage. “The complete works of Shakespeare. Abridged.” I´ve seen it in London, and now I´ve seen it in Stavanger. A silly-funny-energetic show!

Backstage birds

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

I found these beautiful birdcages backstage. Birds is a returning theme in MOZART. Take a look at this teaser on Stavanger Konserthus´ homepage HERE if you want a little happy-music 🙂

Taking pictures for the program. 🙂

quick quilt

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Fall is here. Halloween is just around the corner. Orange is the color of the day. I had a few extra hours today, and wanted to get a head start on some of my Christmas presents. In my never-ending supplies I found these orange cotton-fabrics. Tearing wide strips, absolutely not being exact in measurement, overlocking […]

… the band! Here paying close attention to the instructor. Take one look at this photo, notice the costumes, and you KNOW it´s gonna be a great show! 😉 What else? Autumn is here. A few days of dry, sunny, relatively warm autumn, with colored leaves, and now… well, let´s just say we´re back to […]

The costumes arrived from Denmark this morning. Five big flight-cases filled with costumes, another one with wigs. Spent the day unpacking, sorting, checking lists, looking, finding, sorting some more. Long day. Good day. 🙂

It might look like a collar, but it´s actually two rococo-inspired arm-cuffs. Just missing the arms to sew them on…

In Stavanger

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

I´m in Stavanger. I´ll be working for Rogaland Teater the next couple of months on the show MOZART. Which means the content of my blog-posts will probably be a bit different the next weeks. I´m staying in an theatre-apartment, and look at my view! The sea! I can see the sea! It´s right outside! 🙂

the green door

Sunday, October 21st, 2012

This vibrant, poison-green is the base color for the doors in the Cardamon-tower. Fun, eh? 😉 We got some old wooden doors, salvaged from an old house. First, I applied the green base. Then I added a orange wash. And finally I added a blue wash. And the tower? It´s coming along nicely! Here, John Olav […]

Rosendal inspiration

Friday, October 19th, 2012

Rosendal is a small village in one of the fjords east of my island, and it has one of the very few castles in Norway, from the 17th century. They also have a great reputation for art. Every November they host a big Christmas-fair, and the hosts of the fair invited me to have an […]
