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.

Soft Monuments, soft moments

Monday, August 31st, 2015

I visited the exhibition “Soft Monuments” at KODE in Bergen today. A big exhibition with textile works, both wallhangings and sculptures. It was so inspiring walking among these great pieces of art, and so calming. They are soft on the soul, but still leave food for thought. I just wanted to share a couple of […]

a new life

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

I´m spending my days trying to adjust to my new life. Juggling jobs and commissions, and studying, learning new things. First thing I´ve learned, or maybe realized is a better word, is that I know quite a bit how-to, and hardly anything about my subject. Which is interesting in itself. I have a strong feeling […]

I´m a student! 22 years since i graduated Teachers College, with my arts and crafts-teacher degree. And now, I have started the Master studies. I´ve been putting off thinking much about it until now when it all of a sudden started yesterday.. I´ve felt like the biggest gambler getting into this. The past 8 years […]

School starts on Monday! I´m gonna be a student again! Yikes! Better get my new calendar-book ready, so I have somewhere to write down all I have to remember! She´s almost as pale as I am, pale with fear and excitement! She needs some more color, I need to just dive into it! Tell you […]

Posh-ish guerilla

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

At the edge of summer, and I´m sewing away! Another guerilla-embroidery piece is done. I did not make all of this! Just the lettering. It was an unfinished piece I found in a charity-shop a couple of years ago, and I knew I wanted to make something with it, just not what…   The embroidery […]

Building inspection!

Friday, August 14th, 2015

I think I´ve already mentioned it. Haugesund city is getting a new health house. With a private hospital, physiotherapy, optician, a gym, a post-office, a grocery-store, a café… and 24 apartments on top! An all-in-building, in the middle of Haugesund centre. It´s a 7 story-building, and it is SO lovely formed and planned – kudos […]

Posters and plans

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

Fall is just around the corner, and plans are being made. Our culture-house is celebrating it´s 10th anniversary, and the Art group is helping with activities like a photo-workshop and a Family-day making  little wooden boats. Both things are happening in October, but since I am the poster-person, here they are: Information about the activities in […]

I am trying to explore different options, different techniques and different expressions before the big embroidery exhibition next summer. One thing that´s been quite common around here, a generation or two ago, are these embroidered wall-hangings. Some of them have a saying from the Bible, and other, like this one, welcomes you into the home. […]

Rain on a hit summer´s day

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

“Rain on a hot summer´s day” is the title of this acrylic painting I made tonight. I had two friends over for a creative evening. I´ve said it before, I´ll say it again: it´s so nice to create with someone else! This is maybe an odd painting. I decided to combine a naturalistic  picture with […]

I´m out of thread! And my family is not all there yet! Stay tuned….
