Lisa Karlsson is a textile artist who works with patchwork technique in the oldest artistic tradition - the decorative ornament. She has been in the textile handicrafts for many years and, was encouraged to see with an artistic eye at an early age. Lisa's studio is located in the beautiful archipelagic town of Vaxholm. The work of quilting is a slow process where old textiles are recycled and joined together, by piece to piece, into new, complex entities in a interplay between history and contemporary times.
Lisa Karlsson is a Stockholm-based artist, residing in a small coastal community where the Swedish capital breaks into the Baltic archipelago. Every morning she takes the ferry to a small neighbouring island, where her studio is set up in an old, weather-beaten naval outpost girded by a dry moat. Here, the sharp seasonal vicissitudes, lowing ships and stray floes of ice provide the tranquility she needs to work with her patchworks.
