Gunnel Svensson is a mixed media artist from Sweden. Her body of work is diverse and beautiful.
Her work brings together fabrics, papers and stitching to create amazing pieces of art. The attention to detail and craftsmanship in some of these works is incredible.
Throughout her work I feel a sense of nostalgia and an honouring of times past. The phrase “faded glamour” springs to mind and some pieces provoke poignant feelings within me.
But there’s no denying the quality of work. And if that embroidered art wasn’t enough, the fact that her blog is in Swedish and English gives you a chance to learn another language! It doesn’t get much better than that! 🙂
You can buy her work on her etsy shop, or just sit and admire her flickr account…
