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.

Finnaas Kraftlag decoration

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

I´ve told you about the calendar I made for Finnaas Kraftlag, my local electrical company, presenting a month at a time here on the blog. They wanted some of the pictures from the calendar on the walls in one of their meeting rooms. So here are the four pictures they choose. First out is Siggjo, […]

dance studio model

Monday, March 25th, 2013

Part of being a set-designer is making models. Models of the stage and everything you want to place on it. A lot of the culture-house-stages have the same minimum measurements, which makes it very practical to have a wooden model of one. For other shows in other venues, I make new models. This one is in […]

We´re about to set out on a big family-journey, a two-week holiday in the States. Some of the places I´ve been to before, some not. We have quite an intense itinerary, so I´d appreciate any tips from you on places to go, thing to see and experience. Our route is San Francisco, via Big Sur […]

IF: swim

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is SWIM. I wanting to do something with synchronized swimmers, they´ve always fascinated me. I made a collage based on the super-dreamy photo of Zena Holloway. Check out her web-site, she takes the most amazing photos! The quote is by Steven Wright. I know the text is a contrast to […]

recycled silk bracelet

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

I´m down with the flu, and it´s boooooring! Spending whole days doing nothing, wanting to be creative, with heeps that needs doing. Lacking the energy though, this is all I managed to do… a 5-minute bracelet make-over. Using a regular thin bangle, I wrapped it in recycled silk thread. A small drop of glue to […]

playing with Kim

Friday, March 22nd, 2013

“Kim Leker” (“Kim plays”) is the name of the youth show that Ive been working on at Haugesund Theatre. This week has been intensive, getting everything in place before Easter. The show doesn´t open until April 10th, so I can´t show you too many photos yet. But we had a photo-shoot today, and I just […]

the showering sandbox

Wednesday, March 20th, 2013

I promised I´d write about the theatre today. And where else is it the most natural thing in the world to bring an old Sand-box in from the road, and into the shower to clean it up!? I needed a yellow sandbox for the show I´m working on, and was able to borrow this old box […]

brave new world

A playful collage before the next project 😉 Tomorrow I´ll be posting from the theatre…

from sample to passport-purse

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

It ´s high time I make myself a new passport-purse. I use them everyday, so wear and tear makes them last about a year. I´d had my present one for a year-and-a-half… So I used another one of my samples form my screen printing-workshop, and made a new purse. I prefer to keep them relatively […]

from sample to pillow

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

I made lots of samples the past two weeks. Experimenting with colors, fabrics, patterns. Below is one of my samples, on pure silk satin. The colors vary a bit on what kind of material you use, and on this silk the colors turned bright and vibrant. Since this particular piece of fabric had the exact […]
