Visit the studio of Scandinavian folk artist and ASF Folk Art Fellow Pieper Bloomquist! Based in Grand Forks, North Dakota, Pieper studied Swedish Dalmålning (Kurbits) and Bonadsmålning, and has been painting in traditional Scandinavian styles of folk art since 1993. Pieper enjoys utilizing elements from folk art traditions to tell modern stories, incorporating the floral forms, borders, layout and perspective of the past to depict scenes that — while personal to her — portray universal human experiences and daily activities of growing up in the upper Midwest. She enjoys placing playful, contemporary scenes in the context of traditional Swedish flower and scroll formations.

In this visit premiering on Saturday, June 26, Pieper will share the differences between various Scandinavian art forms, revealing a bit of her painting process, and experiences working as an artist (as well as an oncology nurse) during the pandemic.

The Studio Visit will premiere on the event page at 2 PM ET on June 26 via YouTube and Facebook, and remain available to stream through July 3.
