Quilts by Lisa Karlsson_White_3.jpg

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.
