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.

Porto SPACE conference

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

The final international conference for the SPACE-project, including lectures and workshops. I always learn so much at these. This time I came directly from the US, and was jet-lagged and got a cold on the plane (of course), but still enjoyed it. Since a couple of the speakers had to cancel last minute, I was […]

The Climate Reality experience

Wednesday, March 27th, 2019

March brought with it a great adventure and one of the best courses I´ve attended: The Climate Reality Leadership Training in Atlanta, USA. This might be better known as former vice President Al Gore´s grass-root organisation of people advocating against global warming. Over 2300 people were gathered in Atlanta to learn the latest on the […]

Upcycled dollshouse

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

I found an old, tired dolls-house at a charity-shop a couple of years ago for $3, and thought I could do something fun with it. I still remember how badly I wished for a dolls-house when I was a little girl, and thought perhaps the case might be the same for my niese. The roof […]

Workshops in Porto

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Never too late to try something new, right? Like teaching composition-workshops to music-students!! I had kick-off session explaining what the GSO was, and challenged them to make the composition for the trailer for Gravity. Together with their amazing teacher, Oscar, they did it! I also held an eco-design workshop with the teachers, challenging them to […]

Sao Tome & Principe

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Paradise. The most beautiful place I think I´ve ever been. With such beautiful and interesting people. Certainly one of the greenest. Both literally and metaphorically speaking. A small island-state, quite autonomous, ins West-Africa. Only 7500 inhabitants. That´s less than Bømlo! The rich nature was overwhelmingly beautiful. It was hot and humid and rich and green […]

The Climate Reality Project

Thursday, January 3rd, 2019

I simply cannot keep it a secret – I am so excited! I just got an email telling me I was accepted to join the Climate Reality Leaderships Corps training! This is such a dream come true! I cannot believe how lucky I am. And at the same time, I am thinking about all that […]

Christmas ornaments 2018

Tuesday, January 1st, 2019

First: Happy new year! This year´s Christmas ornament is a small bird-house. I totally admit to cheating, using pre-made paper-houses, and decorating them with salvaged wool needle-point embroidery. I added details in neon-pink, since the colors of the embroidery were quite muted. Below you can see photos from the process. The knitted mini-mittens are in […]

One Ocean

Friday, December 21st, 2018

This year´s Global Science Opera is all about the ocean, sustainability and climate change. Click on the poster and the fish will take you to the opera: It´s the first production that has been my responsibility as production manager, and I am quite proud of the result. 18 countries participated this year (+10 in New […]

The Boys in the Christmas tree house

Friday, November 30th, 2018

The Boys in the Christmas tree house, by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton, adapted to stage by director Birgit Amalie Nilsen, had it´s  world premiere at Kilden Teater in Kristiansand. I had the costume-design for this wonderful, imaginative, absurd and silly show. With an abundance of quirky characters, there was preferably no limit to our […]
