Packed at Pumpkin carving workshop!

30.October 2014
Wow what a day yesterday ended up being!!
So many people showed up, there wasn’t room for any more, and the result was 35 pumpkin lanterns.
Several journalists also showed up, including the tv-channel TV2. The result was sent on the National Breakfast-tv show “God Morgen Norge” this morning. This is the 3rd year in a row I am on that tv-program with my pumpkin carvings. Only difference is that it was filmed at my art studio this year instead of live from tv-studio.
You can see links to articles with lots of photos from Driva and Trollheimsporten underneath the photos, naturally all links like that are also to be found under Reviews as usual.
A lot of people have already asked me if I will hold another workshop next year, and/or make it an annual tradition!
Here’s a few photos from yesterday:

Some have started on their pumpkins, others are planning.
TV2 was there for several hours and filmed


Preparations are important

Jack O’ Lanterns

27.October 2014

The big Pumpkin lantern carving day is just around the corner, I have to admit I am really excited and can hardly wait! I love carving pumpkin lanterns, so I think it is just brilliant that so many people want to come and learn this.
Here’s one I carved yesterday, just to give you an idea of what’s to come

I would like to remind you all to
-Bring an apron, to avoid getting your clothes all messy
– Remember it will ave a lot of time if you hollow out your pumkin before you arrive
– I don’t have enough pumpkin knives for everyone, so please bring a small sharp knife
– It does start at 3pm, but you’re allowed to arrive later
– When you hollow out your pumokin at home, draw a lid on top, but reme,ber that the lid will need an edge to rest on, so DO NOT cut straight down! Hold your knife in an angle towards the middle instead.

Welcome to Pumpkin carving at Inga’s art studio!

25. October 2014

Fun pumpkin lanterns

10.October 2014

Do you want to learn how to carve cool pumpkin lanterns

for Halloween?

Welcome to a pumpkin carving workshop at Ingas art studio; Dalalåven Atelier!


Some extra info:

Avoid buying a pumpkin that is partly green og very light yellow, they are not ripe, so they are very hard and difficult to carve.
carving a pumpkin lantern takes time.
Gutting the pumpkin is way more boring than carving it!
So if you have a limited amount of time, and/or the one who will be carving is of the impatient type I’d recommend gutting the pumpkin at home before you arrive!

Remember that it is way more fun to carve the pumpkin than it is to gut it!

Instructions for gutting you pumkin at home:
Draw a lid on top of your pumpkin, cut it out, remember that the lid needs an edge to rest on, so do not carve straight down! Carve at an angle.
Remove all seeds and strings, and scrape the inside of the pumpkin using an ice cream scoop or a spoon.
Pay particular attention to the wall you are going to be carving. Make sure it is no more than 3cm thick.

I do have some extra pumpkin carving knifes, but depending on how many people who show up I cannot guarantee enough equipment for everyone. So I recommend bringing a small sharp knife.

For the eager ones; The hobby shop Panduro sell pumpkin carving sets for only Nkr 39,- See here

The workshop starts at 15.00 – but you can come later, it doesn’t matter if some people arrive as others are leaving. I will be helping everybody individually, and people carve at different speeds anyway.

You pay on arrival, by cash or card

Christmas fairs

3.October 2014

Some of you have probably started thinking about Christmas presents already, – well for the ones of you who haven’t started buying presents quite yet;

I’ll be having a stall at the local Christmas Fair “Rindalsmessa” 8th-9th November, and at the big Christmas Fair “Orkdalsmessa” 29th-30th November.
Rindalsmessa is held here in Rindal, and Orkdalsmessa is in Orkanger. Both of these Christmas Fairs are well known for their high standards when it comes to quality and variety, – you can really do all your Christmas shopping there, – and there is so much to see!

On my stall I will have both my Inga Merchandise and my art, and hopefully my new trays and coasters will have arrived by then!
Orkdalsmessa has it’s own web site and Facebook page where you can follow all the preparations.
Here’s a photo of me from the Christmas Fair last year, I was lucky enough to get to meet Father Christmas! πŸ™‚

New Inga-merchandise

23.september 2014

I just received some samples of brand new Inga-merchandise in the post today, and have to admit I was very excited when I opened the parcel!
The new merchandise are trays and coasters, and they are all made by Åry Trays AB in Sweden.
The tray is 36×28 cm and the coasters have 4 different motifs.

I am very happy to get to cooperate with Åry Trays as this is a company renowned for thei high quality products, – as an example; they make these products for the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. Their products are all individually hand made from single sheets of finest birch wood, with no joints, so providing a high quality finish and longevity of use. All their trays and coasters are dishwasher proof. Åry Trays are also ecologically friendly
Naturally it will take some time before I have my collection in stock, but it should all be here in about a month. As usual my merchandise can be bought by visiting me in my art studio Dalalåven Atelier. Or by using the order form here on my web site.
I hope these trays and coasters will be wrapped nicely up under lots of Christmas trees this year!

Opening times at my art studio

10th September 2014
As I have mentioned here earlier I currently have an art exhibition in Sweden, the final day is 12th October. All of my art is currently there, so the walls in my art studio are very empty at the moment. Due to this I will only be open upon request untill my paintings return from Sweden.
If you are interested in purchasing any of my merchandise, – like candles, calendars or cards, – please do not hesitate to contact me.
From mid-October untill Christmas my art studio will be open both some evenings mid-week and in the daytime on most weekends.

And now, 16 months later we are finally nearing the end!

Artist Talk in Molde

13.April 2014

I will be presenting my art at an Artist Talk on Saturday 26th April at 1pm in Plassen in Molde.
This Artist Talk is hosted by Møre og Romsdal Art Centre.
Using my art I will take you on an emotional tour through grief, deaspair, depression, – and the battle back to life.

On 31st October 1996 my twin sister Elin, and Elin’s boyfriend Jin, was shot and killed in Ålesund. This was a life changing event for me. One half of me was gone forever and ever. I can never love anyone like I loved Elin, and no one will ever love me like Elin did.
My art saved me.
It is vital to talk about tragedy, grief and death – life is unfortunately not just comfortable and nice. I have always wanted to do what other people have described as “difficult” and “impossible” – if you use stubborness constructively it can give the energy and power to get through difficult times.
I think I can guarantee you all a powerful story and powerful pictures this Saturday

Everybody is welcome! So if you are in Molde or nearby, I hope to see you there!

“We would like to congratulate Inga Dalsegg as the Name of the year 2013 (Årets Drivanavn 2013). This is an honourable title one can be proud of. The decision is entirely up to the readers. It cannot be done in a more democratic way, says Sigmund Tjelle (the editor)”

Gingerbread Hobbit House

22.December 2013

I had my annual gingerbread house baking day with friends this week. This is an annual tradition in my house, I invite some of my close friends and we have an entire day where we bake and build various creative buildings from gingerbread.
This week we were inspired by The Hobbit, – so we made a hobbit house, – on the side of it you can see Gandalf riding in on his wagon.

The Norwegian tv-channel NRK have made an article about the gingerbread hobbit house here

Norway’s largest Christmas card?

12.December 2013

We think we have made Norway’s largest Christmas card!
Nathan Lediard at Lediard Foto has also this year taken photos of me for my Christmas cards, which should be on their way in the post to my customers now. We had an rather chilly outdoors photo shoot last week in -19c.

This year one of these Christmas cards will not only be sent to my art buying customers, – it is also covering an entire wall!
EB Video has printed the photo on to wallpaper, and fitted it on the wall, it is 4,5×2,8 metres!
This giant Christmas card is in the entrance of the Domus shopping centre in Surnadal, – and it will stay in place untill January.
We sincerely hope this Christmas greeting will brighten the day of all the customers and employees who will walk past it now in December.

You can read more about this here on Driva og Trollheimsporten

Here’s a few photos of the project from beginning to end!

The portrait season is here!

20.November 2013

A lot of people are thinking about having a portrait of some of their loved ones made for Christmas.
I take commissions, and can do portraits both as oil oaintings, pastel- or pencil drawings. All you need to do is e-mail me a photo.
But please do remember that it takes time to paint or draw a good quality photo! So if you’re considering having this done, I recommend ordering it as soon as possible, – so that I can guarantee to get it to you in time for Christmas.

I just finished a commission of this type today, below you can see Lone and Tøger

So I decided to expand, and today I received another two motifs on the smaller candles.
The prices are Nkr 300,. for the large ones and NKr 200,- for the small ones. They can be ordered directly from me, just get in touch via phone or e-mail! πŸ™‚

#Artist’s Demonstration

19th November 2013

On Tuesday 19th November Norwegian artists all over the country were demonstrating, – “#Kunstneraksjonen” is a national demonstration for the future of art. We encouraged people everywhere, – at home and at work, – to cover up art and culture.
As I myself was not able to travel to one of the larger demonstrations in the cities I decided to get a local demonstration going instead.
below you can see me and actor Per Arne Løset starting the demonstration at Surnadal Kulturhus

I have to admit it really made me happy to see this advert on the front page of the newspaper “Avisa Sør Trøndelag” earlier this week!

The Motivation Award

7th July 2013

I had my own stand selling my art calendars and art candles during Saturdays Market Day in Rindal, the sale and response went beyond my wildest expectations. So thank you very much to all of you who were there! πŸ™‚
To top the day off Emil Gåsvand and I was awarded Rindal Bank’s Motivation Award for 2013. This totally came out of the blue, I had absolutely no idea at all, – so I was actually rendered speechless, – which doesn’t happen very often!

The jury’s statement say’s “15 years ago, the second prize winner was awarded a cultural grant from the Bank in connection with the Bank’s 125th anniversary. Since then she has evolved into a cultural personality in Rindal, both through her own art and as an art teacher for other young talents. Through her art and her many exhibitions she has made her mark both nationally and internationally.”
You can read more about the award and the entire statement from the jury in Driva’s article here. Also you can find several articles about this under Reviews

Here’s a few photos both from us receiving the award and from me on my stand at the Market Day:

10.May 2013

Today I have just finished painting my very first quadriptych!Not a word you hear very often, – I know…. It means 4 pictures in 1, – to sum it up.

The subject i was given was The 4 Seasons, – this is a commission I have worked one for some time now. Today the customer came to my art studio to view the finished piece, – he was very pleased, – and is looking forward to getting it up on his wall.

From left to right you see; Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.
I was given the freedom to freely choose how I wanted to “solve” and paint this theme. I chose to combine the seasons with the cycle of life.
So spring is a small child, and summer a youth. Autumn is the time for harvest and fertility, – both in nature and among living creatures. Winter is old age, – the winter of life.

You can see a larger picture and photos of all 4 individual paintings in the Commission-gallery

12th February 2013

My second painting this year is finished!
I just discovered that all of the paintings I am currently working on all have a fair bit of the colour blue on them, which is very unusual for me! Blue is not a colour I use a lot of in my art.
But I have been working a lot with symbolism in both this painting, and the other ones that are on the way, so the colour blue just came naturally somehow.

Here’s the painting, it’s called “Breaking Free”, and you can find it in the hands and feet gallery.

Recipe Book

21st November 2012

This isn’t art related, but still, I just have to share this piece of news with you.
I love to cook, and have now had the honour of contributing to a recipe book made by Britt Grete Moen.
I organised a picnic for the author, photographer and one of my friends, and several of my picnic receipes are now in this book.

I only received the book myself yesterday, and have to say it’s a really good one; it has receipes for all level of cooking and something to tempt everyone, in addition to beautiful photos and a cool design.

So if you know anyone who understands Norwegian and like cooking, – this is a perfect Christmas present!

Here’s a few photos from my chapter in the book:

Rindal Christmas Fair 2012

20th November 2012

As I mentioned earlier I had a stand at the Rindal Christmas Fair this year,

there was a lot of beautiful things to see and buy, all sorts of products.
On my stand I didn’t just have my art, in addition I sold special candles with my paintings printed on them. These sold a lot more than expected though, so I was sold out after only 2 hours!
Luckily there was hope for those who didn’t make it there in time, as I did take orders. So my friend in Stavanger who makes these candles are now producing as many as she can, they are all individually hand made, so it does take some time though.

Here are a few photos from the fair:

Kunstlys Portrett

More papyrus and other paintings too

19th November 2012

There’s been a fair bit going on lately,

here’s some of my newest work. Unfortunately i cannot share all of my recent pictures with you, as some of them are commissions intended as Christmas presents. So I will have to waith with sharing them untill later.

But untill then, – here are 2 small papyrus paintings and one ordinary oil painting:

Good Morning Norway

30.October 2012

Tomorrow morning, Wednesday 31st October, you can see me carving pumpkin lanterns on Norwegian TV. I will be on “God Morgen Norge” (Good Morning Norway” on the channel TV2, the show is on from 06.55-10.00, and I will be on and off from around 07.40-10.00.

I have been carving pumpkin lanterns for years, and i did an article for the comic book “Nemi” in 2007 where I had a step by step instruction in how to carve pumpkins. But this will be the first time where I have to think about time and work under pressure! So that’ll be pretty exciting!

So if you have the opportunity to watch tv in the mornings, turn over to TV2 tomorrow to see the result! πŸ™‚

NRK Trøndelag made an article about my pumpkins last week, there’s plenty of photos there, you can have a look at that here

And here’s one of this years pumpkins:


Christmas Fair and exhibition in Hov Church

24th October 2012

There’s always plenty going on for me the last couple of months before Christmas. In addition to working on commissions I am now also busy preparing a few other activities.

I am participating with some of my paintings in a Group Show with the theme “Love” in Hov Church at Sunndal 1st-29th November.

And I am having my own stand at the annual Christmas Fair in Rindal 10th-11th November. The opening hours there are:
Saturday 10th Nov: 10.00-17.00
Sunday 11th Nov: 12.00-17.00

If you’re in the area, – please drop by!

New commission

20th October 2012

My most recent painting was picked up by it’s new owner yesterday, – you can see a picture of it below here. This was a commission of the type that I really enjoy, – where I get a lot of freedom. The only thing that was decided upon in advance was the colour yellow, the atmosphere or mood of the painting, and the size. So with the rest left up to me it was also pretty exciting when the client got to see the finished result for the first time!

It has already been hung on the wall in it’s new home, and I have received excellent feedback, – which means a lot to me.

I have now started on a new commission, – of the type that I usually receive a fair few of this time of year; a portrait of two children. If you have been thinking of buying a portrait of your loved ones as a Christmas present for someone I would recommend ordering it already now, – to be sure you receive it in time. πŸ™‚

15th October 2012

My very good friend Gunn Marit recently returned from a holiday in Egypt with a fantastic present for me, – a small roll of exclusive papyrus! πŸ™‚ I have never before had the opportunity to try painting on that, so I found this very exciting!
I have now done some testing, playing around and experimenting with oil paint on this papyrus, and the result so far you can see below here.
You will find both of these paintings in a larger format in the Emotions and Feelings-gallery

It’s always fun to try something new, even though I did have some trouble along the way; I usually paint wet-on-wet, which I couldn’t make work here.
Luckily for me I have a few sheets left, so I’m pretty sure I’ll have more experiments to show you soon


Hands, – once again!

7. September 2012

I have just finished a new pencil drawing, and once again the subject is hands! πŸ™‚
This time it’s 2 adult hands and 4 children’s hands

This drawing is called “Family 2”

Cozy indoors

5th September 2012

Autumn has arrived, the rain is drumming against the skylight here in my art studio, and I can hear the wind howling around the corners of my house. At least I don’t get tempted to leave my studio to go outside and do something! Instead I am spending my time indoors, planning new motifs, painting and drinking copiuous amounts of tea. Autumn storms aren’t so bad when you can be all cozy and warm indoors πŸ™‚
Here’s my most recent painting, it’s called “Leaning in”

Portrait Painting

23rd August 2012

Here’s my most recent painting, a portrait painted on commission.

The majority of the portrait commissions I get are for drawings, – both pencil and pastel, – so it’s always nice to get a painting once in a while as a bit of variation πŸ™‚



You’ll find this in the portrait gallery if you want to see it in a larger format

The result of the art auction

11th August 2012

I have totally forgotten to share with you how the art auction went. I was both one of the organisers and one of the many artists who donated a piece of art for this event. So I was a bit nervous as to the result of all this.

The auction went better than I’d dared hope for, – a lot of people showed up, and the bidding got really exciting and intense at times. In total the art auction collected around Nkr 40 000,- for the museum.
You can see more photos and read more about it all at Trollheimsporten here

Wedding present

9th August 2012

Occasionally one needs a present for a big occasion for someone special.
I was recently invited to the wedding of a dear childhood friend of mine. I very rarely give paintings as a present, but once in a while there’s these special somebodies that you really care about, and want to do something extra for.
So I gave this painting as a wedding present for Thor-Martin and Tommy;

Lecture and 2 new paintings

2.March 2012

Today I have been to Orkdal College and held a lecture about me and my art for the students there who has a subject called “Art and Communication”. It is always nice to be asked to do lectures like this, and since today was my second visit to that College I assume they are happy customers.

At the moment I am working towards two exhibitions which both opens in April; – I am having a solo exhibition at Rakkestad Art Association in Gallery Midstuen 14.-29.April. And I am taking part in a Group Show at Gallery Skjæveland in Jørpeland 19.April-30.May. I’ll keep you posted with more information about both of these later! πŸ™‚

All of these pictures can be seen in larger size in the Hands and Feet and Nudes-gallery

Commission for Molde Hospital

9.February 2012

Yesterday I was in Molde to hand over my most recent painting “Livsglød” to the cancer ward at Molde Hospital.

The tv-company NRK and the newspaper Romsdals Budstikke was there to cover this, and as with all reviews you can find their coverage under reviews here on my web site.

Several of you know that I am currently on a sick leave due to surgery on my right shoulder on 23rd August. I have been contacted by a lot of people who are wondering when I’ll be back in my art studio painting, I am not quite sure of when this will be, but at least I am not strapped into a sling anymore and I have started physiotherapy. Most likely I will not be able to paint again untill after Christmas.

I was interviewed by Trollheimsporten about this on 4th October, you can see the article here;

Galleria Art Festival

7th July 2011

I will be taking part in the Art Festival Galleria in Mosjøen in Norway this year, Galleria is in the period 9th-16th July.

I am really looking forward to this, Galleria calls themselves Norways longest art gallery, and this year the festival looks like it will be bigger than ever before. The famous artists Inger Sitter is one of the participants.

Galleria is more than just an art exhibition though, it is also a cultural festival with a lot of variety; conserts both indoors and outdoors, seminars, theater, performance, live graffitti painting, and a separate film festival. Last year they made the worlds longest print, and they will be trying for a new world record this year too.

I will be there myself this weekend, but my paintings will of course be there during the entire festival.

As I am bringing some of my artwork to Galleria I have made some changes to my exhibition in Surnadal. Some of the paintings that were there earlier will now be on display in Mosjøen, and I have replaced them with other paintings. So if you are not going to Galleria Art Festival you can still see some of my work in Surnadal.

I have had very long days there while working on limestone with with crayons, ink, acid, asphalt, gum arabic, turps and more. But it has been very exciting to learn a new technique, where I also have to think and work in a completely new manner compared to in drawing and painting.

9th October 2010

I have just returned from a week in Oslo where I have been working at a printmaking workshop; Grafikksenteret. I have been learning how to make lithography, it’s been an educational, intense and exciting week! I have now started on my 2 very first lithographs, and will return to Oslo to finish these in a weeks time. I will post photos of the finished prints when they are ready.

Lithography is a technique based on the mutual repulsion of oil and water. You print from a flat limestone, the artist makes a drawing on the stone with greasy crayons, and then washes it with water. When ink is applied it sticks to the greasy drawing but runs off (or is resisted by) the wet surface allowing a print — a lithograph — to be made of the drawing. The artist then covers the plate with a sheet of paper and runs both through a press. For color lithography separate drawings are made for each colour.
