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.

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 found a picture in my archive that hadn´t been used yet, and they printed it on a big tour-friendly  fabric (with foldable frames). There are […]

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 […]

The Full Monty

Friday, February 7th, 2020

Today is the opening night of The Full Monty (I blanke messingen) with Kompani Andersen. A small group of amateur-theatre-enthusiasts decided to stage the musical about the unemployed Sheffield-workers who put on a strip-show to earn some fast cash. Not unexpectedly, they discover that one thing is to undress, another thing is to do it […]

The Prague Quadrennial

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

I first heard of the Prague Quadrennial a couple of decades ago, my baby-sister was there when she studied costume-design, but I had never been. This year, I decided it was time! It was a wonderment of lectures, exhibitions, national pavilions, workshops, talks …. And sustainability was clearly becoming a topic which more and more […]

Peter Pan

Thursday, January 26th, 2017

Haugesund Teater staged Peter Pan  in January and February 2017. After seeing the show in Bømlo, they bought the whole set-design and expanded and altered the story a bit, and staged a fantastic version (if I may say so myself). Below are a lot of pictures from the show, probably too many, but I had […]

Buttercup design

Friday, May 6th, 2016

My favorite story-teller group the Øfsti/Vestre/Haugland have had the premiere on “Smørbukk” (Buttercup). A traditional Norwegian fairytale of a lazy boy who likes candy, manages to trick a two-headed troll a couple of times before he violently beheads it, steals all it´s gold and goes back to his mother for more candy. Not an obvious bed-time […]

Oslo

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

I just got back from Oslo after working with s´the story-teller-group Øfsti/Vestre/Haugland. Such great days with beautiful people and sunny days of spring! They premier on Saturday, so these photos are still very much work-in-progress pictures. The back-drop is my favorite: a snow-camuflage-net we bought used from the military. So much better to use in […]
