The Wool Paintings of

Karen Garwood - Young

    Ryijy Tapestries handwoven in the Finnish traditional technique which is rarely seen in Britain. This modern, abstract impressionist artist, weaves unique paintings in wool similar to the oriental carpet in construction but handwoven in a method unchanged for centuries. Few are executed making them collectors artifacts. Sought by private individuals for domestic interiors as much as for commercial use in waiting areas, halls, lecture rooms and hospitals. Their scenic beauty is coupled with their tactile experience.
