|Maker Bio/Info: Hello! My name is Ingrid and I am an avid rock painter. I’m from the Twin Cities, but have had the privilege to work in Duluth for the last two years.
The pandemic was hard for all of us, and during the beginning of that time I was teaching in a classroom of toddlers, and needed an outlet to regulate myself.
I started painting, then came the rocks.
I’ve always collected rocks since I was a child, and realized one day when I was painting, that I have many little *free* rock canvases! Now, I'm here today.
Rock painting brings me pure bliss. The process is magical. Half the joy is walking the shore and finding a rock that sparks joy. Do you like the shape? The color? How does it feel?
I believe in the power one’s own creativity and rock painting is the ability to leave something behind that will last. Rocks are some of the oldest pieces of history within our land, and I simply adore honoring the rocks I find. I’ve put hundreds of rocks out along the North Shore and each one has disappeared. Some have reached out to me through my Instagram page, and tell me how I made them smile. That’s what it’s about- sparking joy and smiling within creation. |
Current Projects/News: Come into my rock painting class for a calm, open-ended experience by either 'BYOR' (bring your own rocks or rock from home) or come choose a rock from the various shapes and sizes of rocks that I have mindfully hand picked off the shores - I will provide for those in the class - some will be primed white, some will not. I will bring examples of rocks I’ve painted, whether that be: “food rocks, mandala rocks, dipped paint rocks, and character/face rocks” and individuals can decide to paint from those inspirations, or paint their own idea. This is a relaxed space to paint rocks and talk about the beauty and history of the Earth and North Shore around us. I am happy to assist with technique, process, and creating a welcoming environment. Please join me!
