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.

London 2014

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

New York may have Broadway. But London has it´s West End. And the theatre they produce here is truly world-class! My London-week was filled with input. We´ve had theatre-meetings, but part of working in the theatre is to go see shows too. You always learn something from a show, good or bad. It´s been 3 […]

inspiration: Jean Paul Gaultier

Tuesday, July 29th, 2014

The Barbican in London hosts a very special exhibition: the art, design and work of Jean Paul Gaultier. Two of my favorite outfits. The mongolian inspired dress above and the aran knitted dress below. Gaultier is a true master in fashion design, but he´s also made costumes for several films: The 5th Element and The […]

Sagrada Familia

Monday, July 28th, 2014

The only thing I knew about Barcelona really, was that it was the home of La Sagrada Familia, the cathedral Gaudi designed. So of course I wanted to see this building I had heard so much about. And even though I had high expectations, I was overwhelmed by the beauty, the size, the work, the […]

Barcelona – where the old meets the new Barcelona – where else can you find a beach miles long AND an distinguished cultural city? Barcelona – where else can you, while eating dinner, be musically entertained first by an accordionist, then by a punk-band? Narrow streets, funky shops, nice people. And a nouveau genius architecte… […]

Ribadeo, Figueras, Spain

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

I am in Spain on business! Along the Northern coast of Spain in the Asturias-area, there is a small town called Figueras, and in this small town there is a ship-yard. They happen to be building Møkster Shipping´s newest vessel, an advanced supply-ship. A couple of weeks ago I sent all the art down through […]

These beautiful paintings are made by Barbara Rae. I was introduced to her art at the Summer exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art in London. It´s one of the few open exhibitions in England, where anyone can apply to show their art. Barbara however, is not just anybody. She is an acclaimed artist, painter and […]

England – city life and countryside

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

London is my favorite city in the world! What a joy this past week has been, being in London both for work and pleasure! This fall and winter I will be working at Haugesund Teater with props and costs for Grease, the musical. Along with the director and the translator, we had meetings with the […]
