Proud of her Scandinavian heritage, Northern Minnesota artist Lucia Carlson has been painting Norwegian Rosemaling designs for over 30 years, and has recently learned Swedish Dalamaling. Lucia created her business, "My Front Porch" in the 1980's, selling her paintings all over the United States while raising her four children. In the 1990's, Lucia put her passion for painting on hold while she worked full time outside of the home. In 2014, she was diagnosed with cancer and, after going through chemotherapy treatment, became "cancer free". At the time, Lucia made the decision to return to her passion and is now excited to see where it leads her. Being 100% Swedish, she loves bringing for others to enjoy.
