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.

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

I took a double Sunday this weekend, just relaxing and spending some quality-time with my art-journal. That is to say, my old art-journal, that´s been following me the past four year finally got filled to the last pages, and I made a new one. The last two pages of my old journal. The details of […]

Cool summer

Just a little just-for-fun collage. The only part of this picture actually mine are the flowers in  the middle, from my garden.

IF: swim

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is SWIM. I wanting to do something with synchronized swimmers, they´ve always fascinated me. I made a collage based on the super-dreamy photo of Zena Holloway. Check out her web-site, she takes the most amazing photos! The quote is by Steven Wright. I know the text is a contrast to […]

Saturday, July 14th, 2012

  My latest oil-painting, where I am trying out different shades of skin-colors. I´ve called it “The disillusioned Romantic”, and she would be totally lost and disillusioned even without her broken blue heart. Poor, naive(-istic) thing. My more realistic girl finally got her nose:  

IF: secret

Monday, June 18th, 2012

Your secret is safe with me, after all, I´m a silent star… It´s been ages since I did an Illustration Friday-assignment. This week´s theme is Secret, and I thought it was a perfect theme for a silent movie star. Hollywood is otherwise know, I suppose, for it´s gossip.

Illustration Friday´s theme this week is Mesmerizing. I made this textile portrait a few years ago, but still find his eyes quite mesmerizing. (I can admit to being proud of my creation, right?) In any case, I am currently working on another couple of textile portraits, in preparation for my Art& Soul workshop in Portland […]

IF influence

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

“Courage is never to let your actions be influenced by your fears” Arthur Koestler Influence is Illustration Friday´s theme this week. I think Arthur´s quote is a good guideline for so many everyday challenges. The lovely diva in the picture is Gertrude Lawrence, starring in “Oh, Kay!”. But personally the word influence for me this […]

Silent movie star, Louise Brooks modeled for this weeks theme at IF: remedy.  I didn´t have my usual colors of paint, so everything intended brown, turned olive, and basically the whole color-scheme evolved by itself, as I played around with the paint.

A different kind of safari… … using the lyrics from Karen Kamon´s song Manhunt from Flachdance as inspiration. I’m goin’ on a manhunt, turn it around Women have been hunted, now they’re huntin’ around Manhunt, we all got the need The one that’s been waitin’ has taken the lead I see him every day in […]
