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.

VOTE

Thursday, October 1st, 2020

My modest and polite embroidered encouragement for all eligible to vote at the US-election. It is a stylized self-portrait, inspired by Obama´s old “We can do it!”-poster.

I am so happy and grateful that my embroidery-exhibition is once again about to hit the road. This time it will travel to Osterøy Museum. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only 20 people are allowed inside simultaneously, but the exhibition is open for two weeks and is part of “The Wool-weeks”, with several other inspiring exhibitions […]

2020

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

It´s been a trying year. I am usually an optimist, but this year has put things to the test sometimes when things just seem to be falling apart. A friend of mine wrote the other day: 2020 – the year that keeps on taking… So if 2020 had a logo, this would be it. It […]

A crafty fall

Monday, January 27th, 2020

I´ve been knitting this fall and winter. A lot more than usual. And not for any show, just for the pleasure of it, and mainly for myself. I´ve always loved knitting, I guess you could say I´m an idea-starter, not necessarily an idea-completer, when it comes to private projects. So I set a goal to […]

The 2019 Christmas ornaments

Tuesday, December 24th, 2019

If you have been following me for a while, you know that every Christmas I make one new Christmas tree ornament. (And that I swap with some of my artist-friends). Why a suitcase? I wanted the ornament to reflect my 2019, if possible. And a suitcase may or not be representative of that. In the […]

Portable metal-brush or embroidered x-ray

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

I have what looks like a portable paint-brush inside my right arm. It´s not. It´s made of metal. And the brushy-part is metal screws. No big deal. I broke my wrist. Slightly bigger deal, it´s my right arm. As an artist, my right arm is rather valuable to me. But again, no big deal. I […]

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Garborgsenteret in Bryne wanted to show my embroidery-exhibition, and it will be on display there until May -19 (at least).
