Fine Artists at Archipelago Fair

Skärgårdsmässan brings in a handful of local artisans, many based out in Stockholm’s archipelago as well as various Baltic states, exhibiting work inspired by island life. I chatted a bit with Madina while Maria painted a rendition of historic nautical life along the Baltic Sea using oil paints.
