Laurie Jacobi, whose mother was born in Sweden and who has a home near the Leech Lake
Her work is inspired by nature and how Scandinavian and Native American cultures have expressed their relationships to it through art and legend. “The stories are very important to me. And being a first generation Swedish-American, I can’t help but be influenced by the Swedish tradition of making beautiful things an integral part of daily life.”
