Carina Petersson (b. 1990 in Gothenburg) currently living and working in her hometown.

Her art practice derives from a passionate relationship with the intuitive yet conceptual handicraft. She spends her time processing wool of all sorts, washing, carding, spinning and experiment with natural dyeing.

Through textile traditional methods and psychological terms she often find herself investigating characteristics of necessity and the human relationship to nature.
