Many years ago while working at JoAnn Fabric's I started to think about making a wall hanging of Viking ships coming to the shores of Iceland. So I bought the fabric that I thought looked like wood and the ocean and night sky and this is what came out of that. The wall hanging is about 18"by23", mostly cotton fabric, it is crocked, but I was winging it. This has been a lot of fun, wonder what the next project will be?
Growing up in Iceland with its magical landscapes,the stories and believes of the Huldufolk, the "Hidden Folk" trolls and elves spark my dreams and filters into my work. Also the enjoyment that I have from my garden finds its way into some of my art. After all the work and heartfelt joy that goes in too each project, I am always surprised with what the final handmade pieces looks like,fells like and what it says to me. My work has been featured in the magazine "Art Doll Quarterly" spring 2007,Autumn 2007, and Winter 2008 issues. Was honored to participate in the Wayne Art Center "Art Doll Show" Philadelphia PA.
