The fisherman's wife was the first of a series of women's portraits. They all are identified trough men, their husband, their fathers, their brothers etc. My intention is, to show how much identity, character and expression they have as independent persons. For me it is significant to do this in a traditional 'female' medium, sewing and embroidery, technics which still struggle to get recognized in the art world.
'The fisherman's wife' is now sold and goes to a good home in Montana/USA
