Using Icelandic wool and fish leather as well as Canadian wool, each tapestry portrays the similarities and dissimilarities of Icelandic and Canadian landscapes.


Vanessa Aegirsdottir is a Canadian born textile artist who participated in two artist residencies in Blonduos, Iceland in 2016. During that time, she fell in love with Iceland's landscape, textiles, colours and culture. Her heart is in three places at once at all times; Northern Canada, Iceland, and each tapestry.
