Ulla Novina was born in Sweden and raised in the county of Skåne, an area known for its generosity of spirit, boisterous humor and exuberant expression of life. In later years she lived in the county of Värmland, known for its mysterious forests and deep lakes. It is the county of dreamers, storytellers, poets, musicians, painters, and sculptors. The spirit of those counties fuels her creative self.
The open spirit of the land of America and its adventurous freedom was the anvil needed to mold her work into its sculptural expression.
Together the stone and Ulla tell a story.
Stone is star stuff and of the ages. She feels a kinship with stone. This awareness is expressed as she tries to integrate the nature of the stone with her vision of the nature of things.
When she is successful, self and stone are held in a shared embrace.
