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.

Groovey 70s

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

I just had to share this 🙂

powderpink dress 2

Tuesday, April 30th, 2013

A couple of pictures of Kristine dancing “The Camel”. A woman on the red carpet, striking poses. More and more strange poses. The powder pink color is chosen to give an association to vulnerability. The event is outside in the botanical garden in Bergen. Freezing cold, but with such high artistic quality it left us […]

powderpink dress 1

Sunday, April 28th, 2013

For a danceshow in June, I have an assignment to make a seer and costumes. But tomorrow is World Dance Day, and one of the costumes need to be ready by tomorrow´s preview. So I found my powder pink silk chiffon and rayon, and got started. The underdress is here almost finished. My bust has […]

Miss Sunday-girl

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Finished! Missy here is commissioned. A friend of mine had an antique chair and wanted to give it some color. Instead of painting it, I made her a new cover for the seat. I only have the seat, so she´ll have to send me a photo of the “new” chair.

Brian Wallace´s art

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Look at this amazing painting! Isn´t it gorgeous?! I commissioned a painting by my friend Brian this fall, as a celebration, or marking of the event when I was given membership in the Norwegian Visual Artists Association. He made several paintings, and I got to borrow them home to see which one looked like it […]

girly-girl Sunday

Sunday, April 21st, 2013

I´ve had a girly-girl assignment resting comfortable on my guilt since Christmas. Well, since these are quite fun to work with, a Sunday is perfect for this! 😀 But since I hadn´t made any g-girls since December, I thought I might “warm up” a bit with a couple of smaller ones. This one I actually […]

velvet pillows

Saturday, April 20th, 2013

This is a VERY exclusive line of velvet pillows 😉 All four are one-of-a-kind. The motif is of the naked rock-faces on the very northern tip of Slåtterøy (Bømlo) and yes, that´s the Atlantic you see there. Purple in the pillow to the right, orange in the one next to it. The print is a […]

I am sailing

Friday, April 19th, 2013

My days are quite busy at the moment, so I haven´t been as eager to write new posts every day. An exhibition to prepare for, a big commission for a ship, a set&costumes for a dance-show. I have so much to share with you, but so little tine to actually do it. But you know […]

Red, white and blue

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

Red, whir and blue are the colors on the flags of many nations, including Norway. This picture gives me a definite American feel though. Some weeks in the news seem to have an overload of bad news from one country. First the Boston bombing, then the ricin-infected letters to politicians, then the dismissal by the […]

exhibition poster

Monday, April 15th, 2013

A poster I made today. Finally I actually made all of the “ingredients”, as it is a poster for my own upcoming art-show. 🙂 Bømlo municipal is celebrating it´s 50th anniversary this spring, and they have placed their main celebration to the weekend of Mostraspelet, a historical play  from the viking-era. Moster Amfi, where the […]
