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.

fabric printing workshop

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

I´m a student again! Only for four days, but wow! you can learn a lot in four days! 🙂 I´m back at the Art college in Bergen, attending another workshop in fabric painting and – printing. This time it´s all about pigment-colors. I´ve worked a bit with them before, but only with ready-made paint form […]

silkscreen experiment

Saturday, May 11th, 2013

I really like the naked-rock-faces-silkscreen I made when I was in Bergen attending the fabric-printing and silkscreen-class. I tried out different materials and mixing colors when I was there, I´ve continued to experiment when I got home. Above is a print on matte, brushed aluminum. The paint is actually fabric-paint, but mixed 50/50 with a […]

I just made this poster for some musical friends of mine. Their music is all made by two of them with locally related themes. They named their group Siggjosong, after the biggest mountain on the island. I went with a theme loosely related to our maritime heritage and their songs, and to be honest, I […]

ancester wall

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

I made this is a class with Susan Lenart Kazmer. Originally meant to be a big pendant for a necklace, it is a booklet, with pages to flip. In between are pictures of my grandfather, and his work-collegues at the factory where he was working. It´s a bit big for me to actually wear it […]

A new necklace

Monday, May 6th, 2013

My Sunday-fun-project was making this necklace. In the States, I managed to squeeze in a visit to Michael´s, where I found a couple of “beads” from Susan Lenart Kazmer. I really like her style, the maximalistic, overloaded steampunk, or maybe we can call it “junkpunk”. She uses all sorts of found object, and gives them […]

May goody give-away

Saturday, May 4th, 2013

Spindelmaker´s goody give-away for May is 5 brand new postcards. Since I have my big exhibition this month, I thought it might be appropriate to have a give-away related to it. You are all welcome to the opening, of course! 🙂 But one of you can get these postcards, made of pictures to be presented […]

belt with latin prayer

Friday, May 3rd, 2013

About a decade ago I designed a summer uniform for the local guide company. It was loosley based on a viking pattern. With a belt with the text from the nearby church. (One of the oldest in Norway) The text is the old latin “Ave Maria, Gracia Plena, Dominus Sanctus” written old-style. The dresses have […]

May calendar sheet

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

May is filled with budding leaves, the sun is warming, nature is coming alive… or at least I hope this is what will happen. The calendar sheet for May is with a picture called “Dreaming of getting to sea”. The naked rock-faces are from the islands north-west on Bømlo. Nothing can compare with a warm, […]
