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.

Making a moose

Friday, November 15th, 2013

My good friend and collegue, Grete, is trained as a puppet-maker from Prague, and the moose is all her making.

Wednesday we were at a safety-course in “hot-work” arranged by the fire-department. So now I am certified to work with hot stuff! 😉 Most of the week I´ve […]

Slaatteroy light-tower

“Slåtterøy light-tower/The algae are coming!”, 40×50 cm The light-tower at Slåtterøy has got a new owner! When I look at this picture I always think of the naked rock faces. How warm they can be in the sun, how good they are for climbing, how they smell of salt ocean. (sigh)

Marvelous Mindy!

Always with a smile and a catching creative inspiration surrounding her. She´s finally released her very own book, after being published is several magazines. And […]
