THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
I am KARIN O
I am an artist who just can’t get enough of happy colours, interesting characters and the fun and humorous things in life.
I often let embroidery stitches and/or my pens and brushes meet unexpected materials such as old letters, postcards, vintage invoices, recycled tins and photographs. I also like to see forgotten textiles come alive again through my stitched characters.
As for my Art my surroundings are my inspiration – I’m touched and affected by events and people I have met, seen or heard about. I’m fascinated by the absurdities and fun things of the world, where I question traditional roles in society and change places for high and low. It’s the act of transforming something trough art and adding a hint of reverse perspectives that illustrate my works.
I believe creating art is a wonderful way to awaken thoughts, convey comedy, tragedy, beauty and not least joy. What better way to do this than through an endless myriad of fantastic little needle stitches, paint and colours!
