An Amazing Wool Artist - Inger Johanne Rasmussen

Hi my sweet! Hope you are having a good week so far. I got a bit of a cold over the weekend, but I'm feeling much better now. Mother nature has been a bit crazy for sure!

It's been a while since I shared an artist that I admire, so I thought it would be fun to do that today. Her name is Inger Johanne Rusmussen and she lives in Oslo, Norway. I found her work to not only be beautiful, but captivating as well. They are very large pieces she creates with wool she dyes herself.

Enjoy this video and let me know what you think. :)


Hugs to you,
Michelle and the bunnies

What would we do without art?

I am learning that even in my daily workplace, that I can continue to create with students, teach them to be creative with the language, then when I get home, I have so many other interests that I can engage in such as my writing, photography, my harp. These professionals, what jobs they have, to dive deep into such projects and bless the world.

I like that Inger has the collaboration with the author-they work off each other. Her color sense with her dyes is very saturated.
Thank you for sharing this with us. I'd like to learn more about Inger and her work.
