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.

Matre mosaic

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

Matre is a local firm which produces equipment for the offshore industry. They´ve been around for 60 years now, and for their anniversary they ordered an art piece for the reception area. Saturday morning, and Solfrid, who works in personnel, helped me mount the pictures. It´s a big mosaic. The shape and sizes is actually […]

The backstage weekly

Friday, September 27th, 2013

This week: Painting a bridge! The process starts with the carpenters who built the construction. It arrives as fresh, natural wood and my assignment is to make it look weathered. First layer is to give it a light grey prime color coat. Second coat is a mix of washed out paints in burnt sienna, ochre, […]

Skandi Iceman

Sunday, September 22nd, 2013

Congratulations to DOF! Skandi Iceman is the latest ship in their fleet, and a beauty it is! Once again I have had the honor of decorating the ship. Hopefully the shipping company, and not least the crew, will be happy and feel at home onboard. Let me take you on a tour: We´ll start in the […]

The Backstage Weekly

Saturday, September 21st, 2013

This week I started off painting a bridge. The premiere of “Trollspeilet”(/ “The Enhanted Mirror”) will premiere in only a month. Based on old Norwegian fairy-tales it´s a family-show. And a dear folk-tale is the one of the three goats wandering off to the mountains for summer, walking across a bridge with a troll underneath […]

Yay! I´m making a mountain! Using the BIG saw on the styrofoam, making a giant 3D puzzle. It´s actually quite a good exercise in the understanding of space, piecing it all together. Glueing it all down with the stickiest glue ever. We have two halves of the mountain. Marita made the other half. Here I´ve been […]

Costume workshop

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

This weekend I´ve been teaching a costume workshop for a bouquet of true theatre-lovers in Rogaland. Every other year Rogaland Teaterråd hosts workshops for their members in the amateur theatre-groups in the county. In the class I had 6 lovely ladies, all costume-makers in their theatre groups. Our challenge for the weekend was to each make […]

Backstage weekly

Friday, September 6th, 2013

Have you heard the expression: Faith can move mountains. Well, a chainsaw can make a mountain! My boos is looking pretty cool here! 🙂 Outside the theatre, a wall suddenly was filled with art one morning I came to work. Part of the Nuart-festival. The piece will be here at least one year. Click the […]

Far far away site

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

I am currently working on making a site/blog for Far, far away, Kristine´s dance-performance. It´s public, but there´s still more to come.

journal girls

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

I don´t often paint in my art-journal. The last 2-3 times have actually been while visiting an artist friend in Kristiansand.  Painting with friends is one of my favorite things to do! There are different things that occupy my mind while playing in my journal. The first girl I´m painting with a quite thick brush and […]
