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.

Skandi Acu

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

DOF s newest multipurpose-ship is almost ready for the seven seas! And just before Christmas I was onboard to decorate the mess and all the cabins onboard. This is another HUGE ship (it´s sister won the Ship of the year-award 2015 in Norway), and it will be based out of Brazil. Acu I believe is a […]

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Here she is. Elisabeth in full size (her feet are cut away in this photo), She is freestyle machine-embroidered /sewn in grey polyester Mettler-thread on grey polyester soft-tulle. The two pictures are of the same embroidery, but one is with a white linen in the background and the other has a black linen in the […]

Freestyle machine embroidered drawing

Sunday, December 13th, 2015

(Oh no, now I see a spelling mistake!) This is the first in my brand new series of How-To books. Actually it´s a free fantasy type of log-book for my drawing-exam. I chose to draw with a sewing thread via a sewing machine. So of course the whole book had to be textile. I wanted […]

Keep calm

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

This is  my favorite of all the Keep Calm and Carry On-versions I´ve seen. (I love a good pun) I am now in the inning of my exams, trying to get everything done by Monday. This little thing is part of a freestyle machine embroidery manual. Sewn of course. I´ll show you more when I´m […]

Pieta and sewing details

Friday, December 11th, 2015

One of this years theatrical highlights is Pieta at Haugesund Teater. Sitting in the audience of the opening night Thursday I was completely engulfed in Marie´s 90 minute long monologue. Funny, sad, frivolous, serious, food for thought… this story had it all. A brilliant script and a brilliant actor conveying the story. And the sewing? Well, […]

A World of glass and sew on

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

I went to experience Terje Isungset and Arve Henriksen´s magical concert last night: World of glass. Without a doubt, one of this years absolute esthetical highlights! All the instruments were made of glass by Estonian glassblowers. The music is so visual! Not only all the instruments, bathed in a cold blue light, but the music itself. […]

The anual paint-day with my favorite kids

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

It´s become a dear tradition: inviting the kids over for a Christmas-gift-workshop. They all make one painting each, a present for their Dads. Elisabeth is now almost 2, and enjoyed it so much. When the other kids were done with their paintings, and started to paint their hands, so did she. And when she was […]

Cozy & lazy

Sunday, December 6th, 2015

A long, lazy and cosy weekend, spent knitting Christmas gifts. There´s a storm outside. I always feels extra lucky to be inside a warm house, with a cup of tea and candles (it is 2nd Sunday of advent after all). I really enjoy making gifts for others, and I think that today, people appreciate handmade […]

Square thoughts

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

  Like most of you I am sad and angry about some of the horrible terror-events taking place around the world the past months. Whenever it seems to escalate, my heart grows darker with sorrow for humanity. I know it´s only a very small percent of people who let evil rule their actions. But it´s not only […]
