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.

I´ll be at Moster more or less the whole weekend. Exhibitions, concerts, theatre… a whole festival! I´ll share when I come back!

my very own fabric tote bags

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

It´s here! A big package filled with cotton twill fabric. It is more than a little cool seeing my own design on the fabric. My plan is to make tote bags from it. Unfortunately it didn´t make it in time for the exhibition opening, but I´ll make some tonight and stop by tomorrow with the […]

We won!

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013

Bømlo artgroup just won a prize as the Artgroup of the year! The prize came from the National association of art groups, and the prize itself is 30 000,- NOK ($5000). The group is quite small, with 70 members, but in all fairness I think I can say that only a small dozen of us […]

Today I opened my solo-exhibition in Moster Amfi as this year´s chosen artist for the Mostrafestival & historic play. This year is special since it is also the main event weekend for Bømlo municipal to celebrate their 50 year anniversary. Above is the poster for the exhibition, and below you can see pictures from the […]

I am so excited! My friend and colleague Katrine taught me how to raku-fire pottery today. It´s something I´ve been wanting to learn for ages. And finally we found a day when we could get it done. Lucky for me, Katrine also took some photos, so now I can show you at least part of […]

making an exhibition

Tuesday, May 21st, 2013

Saturday is the opening of my exhibition “HEIM”. Today I brought all the pictures down to the exhibition-space and unpacked. 9 hours later, I think most of it is in place. It´s such fun to get the last months´ production out of the house and up on the walls! Yes, that is a real rock […]

I live in place where the summer is so rare, that when it comes, you just have to drop whatever you are doing and run outside! We´ve had 25 degrees the past couple of days. The sun has been smiling, everyone is a bit sunburned, the trees have gone from small buds to fully sprung […]

more pillows

Saturday, May 18th, 2013

These summer-colored pillows are all one-of-a-kind. With my silkscreen I have worked with different color-combinations, letting one color overlap the other where the sea is. Outside the sun is shining, it´s summer-warm and it makes me happy beyond words!

gluing and shrinking

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Third day of the workshop and I´m ecstatic to learn a technique I´ve wondered about for over 20 years. I know it doesn´t look like much in the pictures, but you can truly make astounding pieces of art this way. It´s all about knowing a bit about the qualities or qualifications of the different fabrics […]

more fabric painting

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

One of the absolutely coolest fabric colors, is the thermo-crome-colors. The name gives a hint 😉 These colors are magical! See below: I´ve made a fern-herat print in neon-pink. Over this I´ve printed with magenta thermo-crome. (Both samples on different stretch-materials) After it´s dry, I fixate it in this big heat-press. (Guess what I want […]
