Eunice Carlson

Being of Scandavian descent and a native of the Upper Peninsula it is only natural that Eunice would, as an artist, have a bent toward weaving. Combining her ethnic heritage bark weaving with the Native American art of quill work has produced a variety of serviceable and decorative pieces.
Eunice mentored under the Native American quill artists from the Great Lakes regions which added to her expertise of this early art. The white and black colors of the quills makes for interesting patterns on boxes, purses, moccasins and bowls. Moccasins dating back to over 1,000 years have been found in the United States indicating that the art had been developed to a high degree before the European explorers reached this country.
Though it is not uncommon to find fancy quilled boxes in European oil paintings of the 1800's, you won't have to travel to Europe for these unique items; you can find them right in the U.P. in our art gallery.
