Ingrid Katarina Karlsson is a mixed media artist widely known for her narrative style inspired by experiences, places and journeys. Her roots in Northern Sweden can be traced in much of her work, sometimes exploring issues of cultural identity. Based in Derbyshire for almost 20 years the ever-changing colours and landscapes of the Peak District keep providing ideas for subject matter. Ingrid’s work approach creates rich, colourful textures developed through mono-printing, overlaying, and stitching on her beloved old Husqvarna sewing machine. One favourite medium, crystalline water colour, enhances the work with a luminous quality, whilst allowing storytelling through the insertion of words.
