About the Artist
South Portland, ME
In the mid seventies, Elizabeth Hunter made a life-changing six month trip to a weaving and design school in Oslo, Norway. This trip transformed her weaving and led her to develop a passion for Nordic rugs. She followed up with another pivotal trip, this time a knitting tour of Iceland and the Faroe Islands. Liz uses the experiences and techniques she learned on her travels to create textural weaving and jewelry.
