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.

Wishing you all a most wonderful new year, hopefully with a bit more peace, a bit more smiles, a bit more tolerance, a bit more appreciation. A bit less selfishness, a bit less quarreling, a bit less unfairness. A bit less hate. A bit more love. Photo from here. Some of my friends choose one word […]
