Janne Robberstad

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.

Who am I?

Janne Robberstad has worked with art and crafts since 1993, as a visual artist and as a scenographer.  I am educated as an arts & crafts teacher, specializing in textiles, and have worked in the folk high schools for fifteen years. Recently I completed a masters-degree in sustainable eco-scenography and creativity, and am now pursuing a PhD in sustainability and creativity in design.

I´ve had several decoration assignments for private companies, mainly in offshore and shipping. All in all there are around 1000 of my pictures sailing the seven seas onboard over 50 different supply-ships. My main techniques are digital collage with photo and painting, acrylic painting, metal-work, application and machine-embroidery.


I have also delivered several commissions for companies on land, like  Haugesund´s new Health house.

I also work with theatre-design or scenography, and have worked with Haugesund Theatre as a costume-designer on several shows, including “Honk”, “Narnia” and “12th night”. I´ve also done large outdoor-performances like “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Les Miserables”, including the Norwegian premiéres of “Chess” and “Miss Saigon”. The last years I´ve also worked as a set-designer, and shows include “Peter Pan”, “Cardamon city (Kardemommeby)” and dance-performance “Far, Far Away”.

I am entering my 11th year as a full-time artist with my company Spøt & Spindel / Spindelmaker.
