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.

Shades of summer

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

I can´t NOT work, even though it´s Sunday, so why not do something absolutely, positively fun: paint! With a summer palette, I´ve made backgrounds both on paper for collages and a couple of pages in my art-journal. The colors are so yummy, I just want to continue working with them, painting, collaging, adding text, thoughts, […]

Ice, ice baby!

Saturday, July 13th, 2013

New experience! I´ve been glacier hiking! For the first time in my life. And it was such fun! The Nigards glacier is an arm of the Jostedals glacier. Equipped with mountain boots, spikes, ice-ax and tied together with a rope. Cool! This is fun! And the reason I´m here: To get some cool photographs! (literarily) We […]

Cool summer

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

Just a little just-for-fun collage. The only part of this picture actually mine are the flowers in  the middle, from my garden.

art consultant

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Occasionally I take assignments as an art consultant. A local company wanted help framing pictures, arranging them, and even finding some of the best ones from their history. Going through the historical archives is always interesting. Especially for someone as interested in history as I am. And I learn so much about fields I hardly […]

summer sofa

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

Sometimes the little things matter. I´ve made a small change in my living room by chaining some of the cushions. They all used to be lime and brown. But I decided to make a little around-the-world-theme in my sofa, since I´m not really going anywhere this summer. From the left: One of my silk-screened cushions, […]

silk saris

Saturday, July 6th, 2013

I got some vintage silk saris in the mail. Oh, they are so lovely! My mind is racing with all the possibilities of things I can make of them! But I want even more ideas! Can you help me? What would you make or have someone make for you?

BAFF* and encouragement

Thursday, July 4th, 2013

I just got a wonderful, wonderful surprise-gift in the mail from Michelle Allen! A big package! Look at this uber-cool tote-bag! I mean seriously! It is SO going to be my to-and-from-work-bag this fall! The vibrant colors, the funky design, the unmistakeable “Michelleishness” over it. She is just such a great artist, and such a […]

New book… again

Wednesday, July 3rd, 2013

Time for a new calendar-book. I guess I should make them big enough to last a whole year, but partly it´s way to fun to make a new book, and partly making them twice the size they already are… I don´t know if they´d fit i my purse! Here´s the cover. The cotton velvet background […]

July goody give-away

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Summer is my favorite time of year! This summer is no exception, even though I´ll be working the whole time. The light evenings, the green growth, the humming of bees, the smiles, the sun… If we´re lucky we even have warm, sunny days. Days when we can wear our best summer-dresses. And what better way […]

Culinary seagulls?

Monday, July 1st, 2013

I found this recipe online. There are several recipes on seagulls. I was a tiny bit surprised I admit. I was browsing for it while working on a picture featuring seagulls. Now, I have to admit, I´m not much a dare-devil when it comes to culinary exploration. But if any of my readers are, please […]
