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.

This year´s Global Science Opera production focused on energy and sustainability. 16 countries participated, from 5 continents.

I am humbly proud […]

A story-telling backdrop

Monday, September 28th, 2020

Earlier this summer, a story-telling group contacted me regarding a backdrop for their upcoming tour where they present classic literature through storytelling in their show simply called “3 stories”.

I hadn´t seen it in real-life on their wall until over a year after they got it. Partly due to the pandemic lock-down. But recently I visited them and got to see the art on […]

My little world

Monday, July 13th, 2020

Sometimes the news brings so much chaos. It´s a big world out there, and there is so much going on, sometimes it´s too much to take it all in. Wars, corruption, selfish people in the time of a pandemic, climate change, elephants dying and  birds disappearing mysteriously… I recognize the need to stay aware and […]

The magical, mystical, the weird and wonderful world of books!

Saturday, June 27th, 2020

A good book is a treasure. It can take you deep inside yourself, or far, far away. To other other worlds, to other cultures, to other minds. It can broaden your horizon and it can broaden your mind, your imagination, your talents, in addition to your knowledge. It can make you forget yourself, forget time […]
