Anna Gunnarsdottir

I am a Textile Artist residing in Akureyri, Iceland.
Focusing on the traditional felt making technique, I combine it with a contemporary and fresh approach. I have developed my own unique way of felting, where my signature has a strong sense of Icelandic, Scandinavian and minimal art. My work is based on the idea of light and shadow, creating large sculptures and 3D wall pieces for both indoor and outdoor use.
I have gained International recognition for my sculptural work, exhibited in
various countries; both solo and juried exhibitions.
I am a member of The Association of Icelandic Visual Artists, and Textile Association of Iceland. I have my studio and gallery, “Hvitspoi” located at Oseyri 2 in Akureyri.

TEXTILE PRACTICE
I am educated in “textile and design” in Iceland. In addition, I have taken further education in Denmark, USA and Great Britain. I put emphasis on using Icelandic wool, silk, leather and fish skin.
