Welcome to my studio on the Internet. I am an artist based in Copenhagen (Denmark) and Barcelona (Spain). I work in a range of visual arts, using techniques such as felt making, embroidery, mixed media, and printmaking. I am driven by the alchemy of discovery and experimentation with materials and I take an investigative approach to surfaces and textures.
Inspiration and background
My main sources of inspiration are nature’s forms, textures and patterns, such as cellular structures, rock formations and seaweeds. Nature’s infinite complexity shape my visual vocabulary. Environmental concerns and my previous studies of biodiversity also inform my making.
After completing a Ph.D. degree in biology I have been working as a scientist and with nature conservation. However, the creative impulse was always there – I have been working with textiles for more than 25 years. Now I am under education for a bachelor of textile art at the OCA.
I can be reached via Facebook, where I share my ongoing processes and link to the things that capture my imagination:

or via Instagram @inger.inanna.weidema, where I show pictures from my studio and from my ongoing textile art studies at the OCA (Open College of Arts, UK).
