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.

Getting ready for Christmas

Friday, November 30th, 2012

This summer, when I was cruising around in my Dad´s boat, learning how to work the engine, I made a few pit-stops along the shores to pick up driftwood. The bigger pieces I use as panelling in my hall (I´ll have to show that sometime…), but the smaller pieces were free for use in other […]

Christmas is approaching, advent even more so! So today I finally got started on this years advent calendar for our baby 🙂 I had this red linen cloth that I had printed a white fern heart on, thinking it would become a Christmas-sy   dish drying cloth, but re-decided, and made it into a long, […]

Mozart inspired portraits

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

Inspired by the teatre-concert Mozart, I made a couple of portraits yesterday. Totally freestyle machine embroidery, loosely inspired by the keyboardist in the band: But you know how it is, freestyle has a habit of taking on it´s own life, defining its own characters… The second one actually looks more like one of the actors/singers […]

crochet for Christmas

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

A Christmas-gift in the making. Nothing is like a little minty-turquoise, silk/mohair, handmade with love in every loop, crochet scarf, right? 😉 Partly made at home in my little borrowed flat, partly made half in the dark backstage between numbers in the show when I have a few minutes left over.

Yepp. This is me. After the show. In one of my work outfits. This is the first and most messy, the one I use to hose down the shoes and some of the worst clayed down costumes. Afterwards I change to an apron to be able to move better. But never mind that… look at […]

A Sunday outing with some of my new Danish friends, Lotte, Søren and Henrik. From Dalsnuten you can see all of Stavanger and Sandnes.

Opening night!

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

MOZART premieres tonight in Stavanger Concert house, staged by Rogaland Teater, co-produced with Betty Nansen Teater in Cobenhagen and Aarhus Teater in Aarhus, both in Denmark. The above video is one of my favorite songs in the show. Cardamon City also has it´s premiere tonight. Staged in Bømlo Culturhouse, by Bømlo Teater. Two very different […]

Cardamon city comes to life

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Sunday morning, 8 o´clock, the carpenters, the painters, the prop-people, the lighting-guys are all busy at work. It´s like a little ant-hill, with lots of people working concentrated, each one with their tasks, and finally, FINALLY, Cardamon City is coming to life! It´s the very first time, the tall buildings have never been put together […]
