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.

keeping it together

Wednesday, July 31st, 2013

This is a very abstract piece I´ve been working on. It´s made of rake-fired pottery, the base is wood. The wire is actually a leather-string. My initial thought was that I wanted to make a slightly political statement, illustrating how global warming is causing the poles to melt. And with a sort of “desperate times […]

Lindesnes Exhibition

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

Finally, here is a presentation from the exhibition in Lindesnes! I am so honored to have this exhibition, I am simply so happy they asked me! The exhibition itself is in a mountain-hall, part of the museum is carved into the mountain, hence the name. In this room though, the walls are concrete. First, a […]

Lindesnes preparation

Friday, July 26th, 2013

Sunday noon is the opening of my first exhibition here at Lindesnes, Norway´s most Southern lighthouse. The really big exhibition will be next summer, this is more a pre-taste of an exhibition 😉 It´s such an honor to be asked to have an exhibition here, I can´t begin to tell you how happy I am […]

oxydizing coins

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Remember Kjøpholmen? The other day I was out in the boat, and I visited Kjøpholmen to see how the copper coins oxidization is coming along. A year later, and as you can see, it´s certainly getting more and more turquoise! 🙂

paint your days bright

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Don´t these colors just make you happy? I was thrilled when I found that my local paint-shop finally could make really bright-colored interior paints! I´ve already bought two of the colors for upcoming projects, but look at the rainbow! How can one limit oneself to only two colors?!? My friend Shelly Massey hasn´t! She´s the […]

little row of sea-houses

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

This little row of sea-houses might be a good and summer-like motif to celebrate sunny summer-days. It´s a relief, built up of driftwood, rake-ceramic houses and landscape, all mounted on a painted wooden plate, which in turn is mounted on another, black wooden plate.

Oselvar by night

Friday, July 19th, 2013

This is an old wooden rowing boat made in Os, south of Bergen, one of the most famous styles of wooden oats in the country. I made this picture  last summer, and today it was sent to it´s new owner across the country. It´s always nice when my art find a new home 🙂 Oselvar […]

I admit it. Sometimes I work incredibly slow! I finally finished the last of my christmas-presents from 2012…. ups… A soft, lime-colored, mohair crochet shawl for my dark-haired sister-in-law. Even though the calendar says summer, it can be cold, so it wont be THAT long until she can use it. Unfortunately.

And  talking of painting wooden things…: Here´s what Nina and I did the night before getting started on all her cabinets. I had a couple of wooden serving plates, found at a charity shop, that I think was a little outdated and dreary in the colors. The wood itself is a good quality balsa. (These […]

Add color, add life

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

One of my dear friends has been dreaming of a colorful, Indian inspired room for pretty much as long as I´ve known her, and finally her dream is coming true. I´ve promised to help her and today was our big painting day together. First we got this brand new, white, shabby chic cabinet with glass […]
