Ulsrud Van Berkom works in a variety of media including oil, watercolor,
ink, itaglio and silkscreen. She studied at the University of Minnesota
and Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited
through much of the United States and also northern Europe. Several
articles and two books on art and mythology have been published under
Some of her more current work are based on her interpretation of the
ancient Migration styles of ornamentation.
"Life has, for a long time now, reminded me of tapestry," Van Berkom
observes, "to be added to day by day, year by year. So my work resembles
a tapestry that goes on, continually changing."
While she seeks this sort of order in her work, the pattern is not
perfect - like life. There are irregularities in the border designs,
a drop of ink on a golden tendril, uneveness in the blue of the background.
She works with primitive instruments on purpose, preferring signs
of the artist's touch to mechanical perfection.
