I fell in love with Ole when I was 16 years old, we married in 1963  and we have kept together since. I  had also started my education as a designer at the Copenhagen School of Design and Applied Arts. I graduated in 1964. At that time we had our first born Tine. Before I could start my professional life Tine and I joined Ole during his training in Canada in 1964.

When back from Canada I started my profession as an adult teacher, teaching design, tailoring and sewing. This I have since performed in many countries, always following Ole in his quest for new frontiers in aviation. Since then I have developed my interest in design of patchwork, silk painting and jewelry and this is my main interest today.
