red robin from beth-emily

I forgot to tell you that I won a cool little art competition last month, one that was arranged by the talented Tasmanian illustrator Beth-Emily. All I had to do was to enter my favourite colour on her blog, which at the moment seems to be burgundy - and now she has made a beautiful picture from it, the red robin as you can see above. I love it, and can't wait to receive it! I already have one of her other prints, Odette, so that's a little collection already... What I like about her work is the combination of detailed, layered drawing mixed with graphic shapes and beautiful colours. I recommend a closer look here and there!

So with this lovely surprice and a refreshing Easter holiday I'm ready to get back to my studio again. See you there?

These are old photos but I still wanted to share them. I’ve always loved b/w photography, and use them alot as references to my drawings. I also feel that taking photos is good practise in terms of playing with composition, and I like it when the photos turn out "imperfect"; when it’s blurry or you get a sense of movement...

By the way, the lioness is actually a stuffed animal from the National Museum of Scotland.. The rest of them are hopefully still alive! (Living in the Edinburgh Zoo).


Thursday in the studio:)





A good day in the studio with a lunch visit from Lene and Stine, daffodils and who knows where these guys came from:

New studio!




Friday was my first workday in my new studio in Meierigata 4, Bryne! From being a dark, little used storing space it has turned into a bright and inspiring room in where creativity is about to happen.. :) The studio is attached to what used to be the old pharmacy in Bryne, a really nice old building (sorry I forgot to take a photo of it!) that is now used as a sort of health centre, called Helsehuset Viben. I found this place when I started doing yoga there last summer, so I got two good things in a go! Now I can do yoga in my breaks and prevent that stiff neck that usually comes with my profession. Brilliant:)

Below are two photos from last week when I visited a friend with a lovely house and the coolest dog.. 



And I just had to throw in this picture below from last summer because it made me remember how the sun feels!


See you next week:)
