Velkommen!

 

Thank you for visiting my rosemaling web site. I have been rosemaling for over 35 years. After my first rosemaling class, I knew this folk art would be part of my life. It was a night class, and when I came home I was so excited I couldn’t sleep. The result of this is that I have taken more rosemaling classes at Vesterheim. I also teach rosemaling classes. Like the rosemalers of old, throughout the years I have developed my own rosemaling style.  I also love woodworking. I build almost all of the wooden ware that I rosemal. While I am making a wood piece, I think of how I want to rosemal that piece. My clients also send or bring wood items for me to fix and then rosemal.  Before I rosemal these pieces, I make sure my client approves of my rosemaling designs. We work together as a team to achieve the final result.

 

I designed, built, and rosemaled the wall cabinet on the left. I can custom build one for you.

Clocks

 

I love making and rosemaling clocks. Years ago my father-in-law had a clock shop. I would rosemal his clocks and he would sell them in his shop. The clocks pictured below were all designed and made by me. It takes a lot of time and thought to create new clock designs.  Below are few examples of the clocks I have made.  One of my favorite clocks I make is a large grandfather clock (pictured below). I make this clock in three parts (top, middle and bottom). This makes the clock easier to mail or move. The middle section has a door with shelves inside. I also put a small compartment in the back of the bottom section for special items.  Any of these clocks can be custom ordered. You can choose the colors and designs you want.
