Meet our Artist of the Month Ingrid
Ingrid has a strong, bold drawing style and an unerring sense of placement and design. You can see that her color work, while keeping to her representational intent, has an energy and integrity appropriate to the big brush she prefers to use in her painting. Her native ability, coupled with her long involvement in the arts, has resulted in a strong, distinctive drawing style and a fearless approach to painting. Her work is characterized by bold contrast of color, and light/dark contrast; strong brush surface; and a compelling kind of expressiveness in the figures.
She’s been interested in art for a very long time and was the recipient of multiple awards in regional exhibitions including the Lackawanna Arts Festival. Working with passion takes on new meaning with Ingrid. She doesn’t want to leave the studio till the art she’s working on is completed.

I am fascinated with the way yarns and other
filaments can be manipulated to tell a story or
fulfill a function - interlaced, threaded,
interlooped, twisted, twined, beaten. In the
fiber arts these are known as handweaving,
tapestry, stitchery, knitting, crochet, fringing,
sprang, netting, felting, etc.
Since all these processes are available to me,
and depending on function, I convert a wide
r a n g e o f fi b e r s i n t o l a r g e c u s t o m
Wallpieces©, Floorpieces© and upholstery
textile for institutions and residences; or into
smaller artworks as one-only scarves, vests,
suits and coats.
Know the function. Select the method. Add
the personal vision. Go!
