Lotta Grimborg (b.1988) is a Swedish textile artist based in Gothenburg. She uses tiny glass beads and various stitching techniques to embroider a narrative, lately evolving around competition, rivalry and motherhood. She integrates found textiles with her own digital printed fabrics to create textile collages, banners and trophies. Through the textile making she feels a connection to all the women out there. She meets them in the stitches and the seams, in the tactile knowledge that has been passed on through generations of women. She holds a BFA from Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm and a MFA from Academy of Design and Crafts, HDK-VALAND, in Gothenburg. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. Open Craft (Örebro), Dotdotdot (Stockholm) Boy Konsthall/GIBCA Extended (Bollebygd), Dunkers Kulturhus (Helsingborg), Konstepidemin (Gothenburg), Galleri Marzee (Nijmegen), Galleri Rosanna Orlandi (Milan). She has been an artist in residence at Boy Konsthall

and in October 2020 she was an artist in residence at Icelandic Textile Center, Blöndous.
