HENNING NORWEGIAN CARVINGS

Norwegian nature, folklore and mythology have always inspired Norwegian artists to make pictures and sculptures that are so specifically Norwegian that nobody can doubt their origins. The wood carver Henning Engelson (born in 1918) started his career in 1947 in a small workshop at Toten, Norway. Ever since the beginning his idea has been to create a world of figures that radiate joy and humanity and inspire us to go up above the ordinary. Each of his figures has its own character and expresses parts of Norwegian soul and spirit. Henning carvings are very collectible with all Scandinavian collectors. Since Minnesota is in the heart of Scandinavia, we have access to all of these wonderful hand carved pieces.

Her work has been on exhibition in the United States and in Norway, and many of her commissioned works are in homes throughout the country. Suzanne has her studio in a Norwegian style home on an island on Lake Mille Lacs, in central Minnesota.
