Born in Sweden in 1979, Lina Peterson now lives and works in London.  Following a BA in Three Dimensional Design at the University of Brighton, she went on to complete an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing and Jewellery at the Royal College of Art, London in 2006. She has exhibited in major UK exhibitons and design fairs such as the “Jerwood Makers Award” exhibition and “Imagined Objects of Desire”  a solo project at the University of Nottingham in 2010.
Her work is a the result of a playful approach to colour, form and materials often incorporating textiles, wood, metals and plastics into her designs.
Her in depth exploration of colour is evident in the results of a recent Crafts Council commission entitled “Pinkish” and “Pinkly”.
