My name is Caroline Eklund and I am a freelance craftswoman
and inventor of my own fantasy creations, living in
the northern parts of Sweden – also called Norrland.
I often find my inspiration in nature and the dark deep forests,
mythology and folklore, the historic and ancient,
the supernatural and the strange.
I have for as long as I can remember been interested in crafts,
arts and building things with my hands, so my creative journey
started at a young age.
Today I have learned a lot by trial and error but I also have
an educational background in both arts, textile and design,
leatherwork, book binding and prop making.
I enjoy working with a wide range of materials and techniques,
both traditional as well as modern and I strive to
always continue to develop my set of skills.
In the end, regardless of the materials or techniques I use,
my creations tend to convey an organic and genuine feeling.
If you would like to know more about me,
here is an interview I did in February 2015.
