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.

Almost ready…

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

The past two days I´ve been in Haugesund, at the new Health-house, putting up artwork on the walls and in the ceiling! On the 7th floor is the cantina for all the employees. Two long walls are covered with windows, I thought I´d add a little bit of a view on the 3rd and 4th […]

painting the library

Friday, September 25th, 2015

The pieces of the set are being built, and we´ve started the paint job. They´re fake, as you can see, stanced out in plastic. Painting all the books is gonna take some time. All in all there´s eleven full shelves like this, and then some more with real books. I think we´ve got our work […]

The Girly-girls in Fitjar

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2015

I´ve had the best day! Visiting Fitjar High School and the 9 students in the senior year in Arts and crafts. We spent the whole day together, sewing and chatting. I brought my girly-girls with me, and they all made their own bags, Almost everyone nearly finished… If we´d had another half an hour and […]

Pauline, Moira´s daughter

Saturday, September 19th, 2015

Early this spring I got an assignment from author Rigmor Moss to do the graphic work on the cover of her newest book. Anita Våmartveit, a really talented illustrator from Bømlo, has done the painting. My job was finding an illustration for the spine, (a photo I took of an entrance to an old stave-church) and puzzle it […]

Ready, set…

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

The guys have started building the set! It´s less than a month till opening night, so it´s about time, you´d think. But no worries, these guys know what they´re doing, and they do it well. In 4 weeks we´ll have a complete 2-story library in the culture-house, filled to the rim with adventures. It does […]

How to catch a mermaid

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

… by using a fish net made from silk sewn together by gold thread! This is an exert of a bigger piece.

ain´t no mountain high enough…

Saturday, September 12th, 2015

Well, this was not my average start of a Saturday: going mountain hiking. It´s no big deal really, the mountain is just 400 meters or so. But since it´s the only big mountain we have here on the island, it´s perfect for taking photos all around the island. Later I will try to merge them […]

3D printing

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Well this is something I´ve never done before! Two weeks into my Masters and I am trying to learn a new computer program in 3D modeling. Being an old lady, it´s taking it´s time 😉 But the fun part is, when I get it right, I can actually print the design in hard plastic in […]

new project(s)…

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Today included a professional photo-shoot for a theatre poster. “Pieta” will be staged in a hotel-suite (!) in the beginning of December. I´ll be in charge of costumes and props. We won´t start working with it for weeks yet, but it´s always exciting to be in the starting pit of a project, especially with nice people […]

The new lace curtain

Monday, September 7th, 2015

The family lace panel is finally finished! It is ca 40x80cm  and took about 1800 meters of thread. Above you can see the embroidery all done, and below, I´ve used water to remove the soluble fabric. I´ve used a sea-green tulle between the layers of soluble fabric, to make sure the stitches stay where they […]
