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.

2013 creative highlights

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

At the end of a year, I usually think back and look at some of the things that has happened that year. It is to once again appreciate the experiences I´ve had, to think things over, and prepare for the coming year. Some good things, some sad, some valuable, some everyday-like, but all valuable in […]

Bømmelfjord is a shipping company, who just moved into a new location, in the same building as Eidesvik. Their new offices were white and light and maybe a bit dull. They asked me to make some art for the common areas. The art should reflect the company, both past and future, and what they are […]

The backstage weekly

Monday, December 30th, 2013

We´ve packed up much of the Les Mis set and started shipping it away. And we´ve had a major cleaning/tidying/washing-seance. But finally getting it out of the house, other chores were waiting. The set for Perpleks was put up in only a day. Second day it was painted, and third day, the actors were rehearsing […]

The Reception-desk at Eidesvik

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Eidesvik has recently finished a new office building, and with it, a new reception. I got the very honorable task of designing a new reception-desk for them. To be honest it´s the first piece of furniture I´ve ever designed. At least in this scale. We wanted it to look like the hull of a ship, […]

Bjørn´s new curtains

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

It´s almost a tradition now. Giving my brother-in-law something home-sewn for the kitchen. He and my sister are about to get a new kitchen, so I thought it might be a good chance to make him new curtains. They´re in linen with silk hearts appliquéd on, and with a freestyle machine-embroidered text on it. The […]

Wishing you all a most wonderful and peaceful Christmas holiday!


Thursday, December 19th, 2013

It´s the last week before Christmas, and at work we met one evening, with families for a Christmas-workshop. I did a show-and-tell on how to make a little Christmas-tree-ornament. (By the time I had the chance to take photos, one family had already left) I think we all had fun, the kids were incredibly creative […]

This year´s Christmas ornament

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

A bunch of little old ladies is what turned up when I started making this years Christmas tree ornaments for our swap. I thought I was going to make a snowman. Or a penguin. I had even thought of a moose (for natural reasons… mooses have been on my mind the past months) But no. […]

I´ve got an art-grant!  I´m amazed! It´s the first time ever! I´ve applied for it, twice, but didn´t dare believe it would make it. But here we are. The Norwegian Arts Council has granted me some funding for my exhibition  “Family-life in the light-houses along the coast”  (Which is a long title, but at least […]

Sign of the times

Monday, December 16th, 2013

I made some signs and symbols for the doors at Bremnes Seashore, as the final part of their new-build in this round. The uni-sex toilet signs look like a happy couple, don´t they? 😉 The kitchen and lee of the conference-rooms named after an island not too far from the office. The door leading into […]
