Inspired: Leise Dich Abrahamsen

I’ve been playing hooky today, surfing the web and reading my favorite blogs, and as I was thoroughly enjoying myself I kept thinking of people who would be inspired by many of these sites, might not be aware of their existence, and would appreciate an introduction to them. I’m only going to share one with you today — but she’s a good one!

Meet Leise Dich Abrahamsen:

Leise is Danish, and she lives and creates wonderful accessories, objects, and pieces of art in Copenhagen, Denmark. Her label is fra leise and her blog address is fraleise.blogspot.com

Leise turned her studio into a little shop and her inventory changes with the seasons and her inspiration. Her blog is filled with photos of things which inspire her, like the pattern of this knitted blanket:

as well as photos of her finished work, like these framed prints and collages:

She works in a variety of media including textiles, wood, and paper, and she’s also a painter and printmaker. She makes cloth cuff bracelets:

and embroiders, (I think I read this is an iPhone case!):

She makes toys:

paintings, collages, and prints:

One of the most charming things about Leise’s blog is that English is not her first language and so her posts are written in what amounts to phonetic English with a Danish accent. I guess their w’s sound like v’s and vice-versa because “sewn” is spelled “sevn” and when her friends helped her rearrange her studio they “mowed” things for her. So sveet!

Check Leise’s blog out. I’m sure you will be inspired.
