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.

July 2013

Sunday, June 30th, 2013

The height of summer is here! The picture for July is called “My childhood summer”. My mother grew up on a farm, and I remember when I was young, how the whole family got together for the larger jobs. Sowing potatoes early summer, picking them early fall, or drying the hay for the cows in […]

Hiv o hoi!

Thursday, June 27th, 2013

Yet another coastal-romantic  old wooden sail-ship image. 40x50cm, photocollage printed on canvas Some days I have so many things to think about, it´s nice to look at a calm picture like this, and dream. And outside it´s summer. And inside I´m happy.

raku arrow points

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

A few weeks ago I visited the ceramic department at HSH, bought some rake-clay, and made these arrows. Seven of them, all different. Now dried, and raw-fired. Next step now is to glaze and gas-fire them. This is by far the favorite part of making rake! Which brings us up to date! Today I´m back, […]

on old ships

Tuesday, June 25th, 2013

Summer is perfect for sailing. And sailing on an old, proud wooden sailboat must be even better. I´m not a strong sailor at all (stomach-wise), but I am a costal-romantic, so in my dreams, I most certainly sail the seven seas! 40×50 cm, photocollage on canvas

a little update

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Wow! It´s been a while, haven´t it?! Time flies when you´re having fun! We´ve just ended 3 shows of Far, Far away in Bergen. With a full house on every show. It´s been such an artistic success, with lots of good feedback. My camera was being used to film the show, so I´ve been with […]

Far, far away

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

” Far, far away” is the title of Kristine Nilsen Oma´s new dance/theatre/performance-show. It´s a personal story of a childhood with a drug-addicted father. Her story is so important, and needs to be seen by teachers, social services-people, police, prison-workers… anyone who work with people, really. This is 50 minutes of sorrow and laughter, of […]

The writing on the wall

Wednesday, June 19th, 2013

Or more precisely, the painting in the ceiling. Part of the scenography for Far, Far Away. Cold facts about drug-addiction and overdose deaths in Bergen. Tomorrow it´s opening night!

The big, red carpet

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

I´m in Bergen, it´s tech-day, and I´ve been working on getting the set for Far, Far Away ready. The set is quite simple, with a few, strong elements. The most obvious of them is a big, red carpet. I´ve cut the edges for an organic feel. My scissors is still sharp, but my fingers are […]

big, red dices

Thursday, June 13th, 2013

Topping today´s to-do-list was sewing some big, red dices. Not so much to be used as indeed dices, but to be used as stools in the upcoming play Far, Far Away. Opening nigh is in only 8 days, I thought I´d better get a move on it! 😉 It can be a bit hassling to […]

Make waves

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

The final copper house for this time. “Make Waves” is another favorite saying of mine. Don´t be shy, live out loud and make some waves!
