Artwork by Elfa Jónsdóttir
I originally studied textile in Iceland and later obtained a masters degree from
the Rhode Island School of Design. For several years I was a visiting artist in the
Art School at the University of Michigan, working extensively in textile, including
surface design and weaving. Later, following a move to the East Coast in 2000, I ventured into
ceramics, producing diverse 3D forms. This did, in particular, including a
large multi-piece installation called "Dwellings." After moving back to the Midwest in
2010, I concentrated mostly on weaving and surface designs. I enjoy working in a variety
of medium, exploring the unique possibilities each medium offers, and finding new ways to
express my ideas. I have had one-artist exhibitions and group exhibitions in several
galleries in the Midwest and on the East Coast. Now in Baltimore, I hope to continue with
textiles and possibly going back into clay.
