Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

My Grandma

By spotogspindel | September 21, 2011

This is my Grandmother. Or rather a textile, fabric-painted, appliqued, machine-embroidered portrait of her. It is still a work in progress, a couple of things that need altering. The picture itself will straighten up quite a bit once it is mounted on a proper frame that you can push apart with those little plugs. (What are they called in English?) As it is now, there are extra shadows from the folds in the fabric.

Maybe this is what I´ll look like in 50 years from now….?

This is one of the workshops I will be teaching in Portland next week. Yikes! Time flies! Especially when you´re packing, and preparing for workshops 🙂

    Are you thinking of canvas?
    I just love looking at all your very unique and creative art! I wish I was as talented a painter as you are! Enjoy your time in the States, Portland is a fantastic city!
    XOXO Lindsay

    No, it´s not a canvas, just the wooden frame that the canvas is mounted/fastened on.
    Thank you so much, I am so glad you like my art! 🙂
