A few years ago I made a row of tapestries, with a reference to a booklet tematizing women and  loveaddictons. These tapestries were shown to point to how victims after been offended, violated or/and publicly shamed show little but fright of beeing in relationships, and that they find it hard to get and receive love. The tapestries have titles inspired by webhoroscopes. In my sketches, the tapetries had undertitles as: Blush! / Stay!/ Kneel! / Dream!


Addictions is not what I write about in my lyrics, but the afterglows of living, in several ways. And I try to add a little humour, or distance, so we, you, dont have to be blue:

Try to Relax! Exhibited at Hå Gamle Prestegard.
Explode in a Flirtateous Mood!
They Say in Life We Make Our Own Luck!
Love Lies Behind a Green Door!
You Wish It Could Change!

The project When Grief Comes was shown at LANDART 2015 in Ask. In this project I  focused on the healing aspects nature, music and birds can have for those that are in need of healing and of seeing an end to misery. The Bluebird is an old symbol of hope and new beginnings. The shelter is made by Kjetil Sivertsen and Odd J. Martinsen.
