Textile Art

Dr. Tuomas Sopanen

Dora Jung may not be a name you know but as a famous Finnish artists and textile designer, Finnish -Americans in Minnesota's may recognize their roots in her work. 

Local artist Erika Mock creates whimsical and colorful wearable art that inspires a freedom of expression in collectors. Made from recycled cloth like gently-used textiles and old clothes, her pieces include shawls, scarves, sleeves and other accessories. Although Mock travels and shares her work with audiences, collectors and customers across the midwest and beyond, her textile works can add color, warmth and delight to the long cold months in Duluth.  We are lucky she has her studio right here in our backyard.
