Ingrid Katarina Karlsson

Location: Chapel-en-le-Frith   /  Genre: Mixed Media

Artist Statement

Ingrid Katarina Karlsson is a mixed media narrative artist inspired by the landscapes of her home in the Peak District, as well as her Swedish roots. Ingrid's work approach creates rich colourful textures, including mono-printing and stitching. Crystalline watercolour enhances her work with a luminous quality allowing the insertion of words.
Habitat: Birds have featured in Ingrid’s work for years, but more recently this interest has developed into looking at biodiversity and the plight of endangered species both in Scandinavia and the Peak District. From birds, subject matter diversified into butterflies, plants and small mammals. The latest series Bird Box introduces small Derbyshire birds in a box framed format.
Abode: During 2023 a new series emerged entitled Abode, collecting little buildings in the Peak District landscape, sometimes deteriorating, sometimes housing horses, sheep or hens. This theme is ongoing and will also incorporate ideas collected in the North of Sweden.
As an artist Ingrid is passionate about telling a story in her work, finding a never ending source of inspiration in the landscapes and wildlife surrounding her in her own habitat.
