Artwork by Elfa Jónsdóttir

The Artist

Elfa 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.
