  • Project published in book ‘INTERNATIONAL FLORAL ART 2016/2017’

    Project published in book ‘INTERNATIONAL FLORAL ART 2016/2017’

    When starting our collaborative journey together last year, florist Sissel Willbro and I didn’t know where our creativity would take us. We knew we aimed at getting published in book International Floral Art 2016/2017, and that we wanted to deal with a subject very close to heart. The project grew into highlighting the daily balancing act and…

  • ‘THE PENDING STATE OF EXPECTING’

    ‘THE PENDING STATE OF EXPECTING’

    I’m writing this in a haze. A haze from sleepiness because now I’m a day overdue, and my body and mind have been ready day and night for weeks, for the wonder growing inside me to enter into this world.  A haze from marvel, worry, bliss, doubt, and hopefulness, all mixed up into one foggy existence about how…

    ‘THE ASCENT OF OUR DESCENT’ – imagining the effect our actions have on our environment

    Just imagine what would happen if we continue like we do, and the sea levels rise.  Just imagine our coasts and their cities, whole islands and island nations, flooded. And with them ecosystems, entire species of plants and animals, in risk of endangerment when the ocean is claiming victims. It takes so little. Less than…

  • ‘THE INCONGRUITY’ – a reflection about our environmental paradox

    ‘THE INCONGRUITY’ – a reflection about our environmental paradox

    It hits me all the time. It hits me when I’m in the forest and see that shiny container sticking out from the green moss. Or when at the seaside and that garbage bag is waving back and forth between the sand and the water. Back and forth. Back and forth… Like that plastic, glass, or metal ever would decompose. It strikes…

    Creating the story of a phoenix, and setting fire to a man

    “The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune’s spite; revive from ashes and rise.“ * When Anders came to me to tell his story through my portraits I got so excited. We had worked at the same office before, but I had no idea about the strong and gripping story surrounding…
