Britta Marakatt-Labba II

Swedish Sámi textile artist Britta Marakett-Labba's embroidered renderings of Sâmi life. Britta's life story is quite amazing as she was one of nine children born into a reindeer herding family. She is now married to a reindeer herder from Saarivuoma Sámi village and is resident in Övre Soppero. Her work is from the heart, from memories and her culture, it has the wonderful space of snow-covered tundra and a white crispness that makes you feel the ice on your breath.
