Elfrida Nilsdotter Ahlby and I´m an artist working
withe textile and painting. I often combines my knowledge of
traditional crafts and love for the materials in the context of art.
I was born
and raised on Gotland off the east coast of Sweden and moved
back to the island after finishing my BA in 2010.
I work in my studio in my house in Visby. I also teach workshops different textile techniques and art aswell.
I have been working on embroideries where I combine my love for colour, the textile materials and the slow communication skills of threads.
properties of textiles are a major part of my creative process. The slow work of embroidery gives a lot of time and space for reflection and thought during the process
