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.

Witches and trolls

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

What better post on Halloween, than one of trolls and fairies and witches? “The bewitched mirror” premiered a couple of weeks ago.

Skandi Bergen 3

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

Skandi Bergen is DOFs third ship with this name, and also the the third ship with this name I´ve made art for. Below you see only two pictures. It´s a long story, but the short version is that the owners sold the ship before the artwork came onboard. These two pieces were snuck onboard anyway […]

One of my routines that I´ve seem to have misplaced is blogging. It used to be […]

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Oh, I´ve already started the neww week without posting last weeks backstage-post! Well. Last week I spent a lot of time working on this tree. As you can see, it´s a pretty tall thing, and we were up in the lift quite a bit to get things in place. You can see it´s changed quite […]

And third, a hip-hop band-concert in association with World´s psychic health-day. This poster is 2×3 meters, and still it looks so small on the wall […]

making goat-horns

Friday, October 4th, 2013

This week I learned how to make a plaster cast form. You can make a copy of just about anything, but my goal was to make goat-horns. The brown ones are originals, the green ones are free-sculpted copies. Mixing the plaster, first layer is quite liquid and just thrown onto the shape. Followed by a […]
