Blame it on my Kirsten Doll, but ever since I was a little girl I've had a love for Scandinavian style! Yes, I was the little kid bringing Swedish pancakes to school for 'world food day' when the others were bringing pizza. Just something about the art, the culture, the beauty of the region has always captured my imagination and my heart.
This blog, Scandinavian Folk, is an ode to that love, and for others like myself whether through birth or just happenstance have a love for all things Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, and Danish. My interest lies not only in these European countries, but their American counterparts and the communities and traditions that have risen up on the American prairie due to the influence of Scandinavian pioneers. I am by no means an expert on these places, but a lover of learning and of different cultures-- I hope you will join me as I explore all things wonderfully Scandinavian!
A little about me:
My name is Heather Sleightholm and I am a folk artist living in north eastern Oklahoma. My business is called Audrey Eclectic, and I enjoy painting portraits and scenes reminiscent of bygone eras. My love of folk art and traditional European and Americana methods have also fostered my love of Scandinavian art. Please visit my art blog or etsy site for more information on my art!~
