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.

Winter and snow, workshops and family. It´s been (and is) a busy month! All of a sudden we had snow, and the kids next door made a fireman-snowman in my garden.


And talking of snow, a visit to Voss with -24 degrees. So cold you can hardly breathe. This is truly a country for those with special interests. I´m not so sure I´m one of them. Even though it is beautiful.


But most of the time in Voss I was indoors, attending a workshop in Textiles and how the textile industry affects the environments. So interesting! There is so much I need and want to learn.


We also visited Mølstratunet (Voss Museum), where this beautiful handmade skirt is. Hand-spun, hand-woven, hand-sewn… partly ikat-dyed, partly tartan-patterned, warm reds mixed with lilac-mauve. From around 1850-1900, and so cool. Wouldn´t it be awesome to be able to master all these skills?!

My mind is spinning around my Master-thesis, on what to work with. I have some ideas, and am gathering as much information as possible before I have to decide. Again, so many thing I need and want to learn!


On a more private note: this beautiful little girl was Christened this weekend. My second grandchild is such a joy to be around.

    What an adorable snowman! And what a sweet, sweet baby. It is so nice to have little ones around. 🙂 The skirt is lovely, but truly the number of skills you have already mastered just makes my head spin!
