Helga Björk Ottósdóttir was our current resident in Husid over the month on September, she studied visual art and textile design at Myndlistaskólinn í Reykjavík, before heading to Glasgow School of Art where she graduated with a BA degree in textiles with focus on printed textiles.

During her stay at HUSID, she has been researching and making experiments with making colour from plants, and then more recently started to also use colour from stones, gravel, as well as seaweed.
