tomte print

Morahast 2013

…a series of original and classic images of Swedish and Scandinavian traditions and mythology. These images reflect my Swedish heritage and the variety of folk art pieces from our Scandinavian collection and trips to the area of Stockholm and Mora, Dalarna, in central Sweden. A more traditional authentic appearance shows in all the images by using common house paints and techniques.

The Tomte Series includes Dalahäst, Systrarna, Tomte, Midsommar, Troll, Diatonisk, and Ski.
