Curriculum Vitae

ANETTE BLÆSBJERG ØROM (b. 1949); f.k.a. Anette Ørom, studied at the School of Painting, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (1968-74, first under Professor Egill Jacobsen, later under Professor Richard Mortensen).

She started her studies in Copenhagen following a scholarship year spent at the School of Fine Arts, University of Kansas, USA. The eminent Chair of the Art Department in Kansas, the late Nick D. Vaccaro, taught oil-painting classes, which ABØ attended, and he also allowed her the opportunity to work with drawing and weaving with a foot-powered loom. Since 1976, ABØ has made woven tapestries in her own studio.

Her interest in thread has led her to study old craft techniques, to work with embroidery and to employ a hybrid form between embroidery and weaving, in addition to the use of other techniques, some of her own invention.
