HELLO, my name is Anne-Marie- Gummesson-Kocherga. I was born and grew up in Stockholm ,Sweden and now reside in San Diego, California USA during the winter months and during the summer in Sweden.
I have always been interested in craft making, art, drawing , painting and taken numerous art lessons with diploma from The Art Institute , Minneapolis , Minnesota. I have lived in Spain, Portugal, South Africa, Costa Rica , Mexico and the USA. In Mexico I learned the art of Papier-Mache'' : first large sculptures, but now I concentrate on smaller creations. Many of them you can hang, like Christmas, Easter decorations and Wall-Plaques. They are my own design,
handcrafted from recycled paper, carton , home made glue and finally hand painted with acrylic colors . Several ornaments have their own story, like The Dala horse, Straw goat, Sankta Lucia. and Tomte. The ornaments are flat, have the same design front and back and measure about 2-4 inches.
I also make other items : Papier-Mache' bowls, Trays, figurines and designs for Greeting cards.
Let me know if you are interested in any of my creations ....and welcome to visit my web shop on Etsy.....Everything handmade from around the world +Vintage.
