1. The One Little Thing You Can Do Today to Boost Your Happiness

    The One Little Thing You Can Do Today to Boost Your Happiness

    I’m back in Fiji and fully immersed in the salty dog life. This means little daily tasks on the boat, going bush walking whenever land is in reach, worrying about dwindling food supplies, trying to connect to the internet and generally doing a lot more reading and a lot less working. Oh well.

    The one funny thing about living on a boat is that you suddenly have a lot more time to think. So I’ve…

    Thank you Kilometre of Sculpture team!

    Kilometre of Sculpture, held in Rakvere, Estonia between June 28th and July 13th was my first chance to participate in a public art exhibition. Here are some pictures of my installation Sirgjoon (Straigt Line); photos by Michael Haagensen.

    I have included the text accompanying the installation below. Really the black line running through the landscape was my first attempt at trying to place…

  5. Video: Visiting Kioa Island in Fiji

    Video: Visiting Kioa Island in Fiji



    This is my very first video blog from Fiji. I am equally excited and terrified to be sharing this and putting myself out there in front of the camera. This is a big leap outside of my comfort zone. But then again, so is sailing!

    I hope you will enjoy watching my recount of our visit to Kioa Island. In this video you will find out why Kioa is a stark…

  6. 6 Things You Would Miss When Sailing in the Tropics

    6 Things You Would Miss When Sailing in the Tropics

    People can have funny preconceived ideas about what sailing is all about, especially when they have never set foot on a boat. It seems that the image they see when I say “I’m sailing in Fiji” is of half-naked bodies lounging on the deck of a luxury yacht, sipping colorful drinks and getting a perfect tan. I’m sure this exist somewhere in the realms of high end tourism and piles of cash. To…

  7. Video: The Long Journey To Fiji

    Video: The Long Journey To Fiji

    I will probably kill my limited internet data plan by posting this but thought I’d share this shaky little video of my long journey from Tallinn to Fiji.

    The morning of my departure day I was woken up by a text message from Finnair saying my flight was “considerably delayed”, which meant it would leave 8 hours later than planned. This would have screwed up my entire…

  8. The Top 7 Reasons Why You Should Totally Come To Tallinn

    The Top 7 Reasons Why You Should Totally Come To Tallinn

    Have you noticed that places start to look a lot better as soon as you know you are leaving? This happens to me all the time. I get into this state of super-awareness mixed with melancholy and start noticing all of the astonishing details, marveling at beauty in unexpected places and smiling at strangers. And then I feel guilty about all the events I will miss and all the friends I didn’t get to…

  9. How A Blogging Workshop Changed My Outlook On Business

    When I first tuned into CreativeLIVE on May 1st to watch April Bowles-Olin’s workshop on blogging I thought it would be just that: a workshop about writing a blog. I thought I could watch a bit of it and go on with my work. How wrong I was! Before I new it I spent the next three days completely glued to my computer, unable to stop taking notes.

    In case you are not familiar with CreativeLIVE…

  10. 3 Inspiring Paradigm Shifts ( or why travel & art is the answer to everything)

    3 Inspiring Paradigm Shifts ( or why travel & art is the answer to everything)

    The past couple of months have been pretty life changing for me.I have spent long days and nights locked in at my desk: questioning, re-thinking and learning. And what a steep learning curve it has been! Thanks to CreativeLive and people such as Ann Rea, Brené Brown, Jaret Platt and April Bowles-Olin my mind has been expanded, blown away and confronted with multiple epiphanies. Here are the…

    Daring Greatly with Empathy

    Brené Brown is my new #shero. Her TED talk on the power of vulnerability is one of the most watched TED videos ever. And for a good reason. What makes it even better is her subsequent talk. If you are not yet familiar with her work I suggest you watch those two videos. She speaks about subjects so fundamental to all human beings, I dare you to not feel touched by her words!

    Let me just write out…

  12. Paris: the good and the bad


    I know it’s the strange thing to say but I don’t really like Paris all that much. It’s expensive, dirty, the traffic is mad and people on the subway look like they are about to have a nervous breakdown. Don’t get me wrong, Paris is beautiful: the French people, the quirky little shops, the gardens and gorgeous architecture everywhere you look. I must have walked over 20km in one weekend, just…

    Live as if you will be forgotten

    Wow! What an unbelievable week! A lot of paradigm shifts and epiphanies, and working through questions that are vital to my creative work that I had previously neglected. Discovering Ann Rea‘s course on Creative Livereally helped me re-focus and pinpoint some crucial elements that I’ve been missing. I really warmly recommend having a look at what online courses Creative Life has to offer, I bet…

    Go see for yourself: ladies in Yokohama

    In my previous post I promised to share the next phase of this drawing if someone guessed where the scene is from. Thankfully one person did comment (woop!) and thus I have an excuse for posting this. Ah, the life of grassroots blogging! (I guess blogging is a bit like tweeting: you send a message out into the Universe and hope that someone will intercept and maybe even respond. Of course if…

    Can you guess where this is?

    I’m not sure how this is going to turn out but I was so excited to be working on some brand new drawings I thought I’d share the progress with you guys!

    If someone can guess in the comments which country this scene is from I promise to post another picture as I progress with this drawing very soon. So don’t leave me hanging!  [icon name=”icon-comment-alt”] [icon name=”icon-arrow-down”]
