Katrín V. Karlsdóttir, Kópavogur Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement Taking photographs captivate me. I really enjoy it. I take photos of what ever catch my eyes and usually what catches my eyes are some patterns in the surroundings.
I´m a ceramic artist and a teacher with a great enthusiasm in photography. I graduated in the Iceland University of Education in 1988 and in art and design from Iceland Academy of Arts 2001.
Beside running my workshop, where I design and make my own art and craft, I teach woodcarving to elderly people.
Clay is my main media but I use all kind of other material such as wood, paper, metal, leather, plastic, photos. Just everything I can use and fits my work.
Nature is my main source. Often I´m just amazed over something I see in nature. A light, leaf, stone, cloud or just what catch my attention. Actually, everything can be a source for my work since it is the life I live that are the background for the art I make. Life is nothing but creation. What ever I do is created in my mind, whether I make some piece of art or do the dishes.
Lately I have mostly been making jewelery and taking photos.
