I'm really digging these folky paintings by artist Lisa Congdon. I love the stark contrast of the cold, harsh winter landscape and the warm, colourful tapestries that make their way into her pictures. Her Nordic inspired work feels homey and has a childlike element to it. As usual when I come across an artist whose work I fall in love with, I want to know the whole story of how they came to create. I found great this interview, and it's obvious she's pretty down to earth and humble.
I would love to have some of her work in my house, the only thing is - where to put them?!!
