My name is Doris Risfjell. I was born in Vilhelmina. Before I worked in our own company Risfjells Samihandicraft I was a teacher for 17 years and 7 years as comissioner of Vilhelmina museum. In our company we present the Lappish, Sami culture with handicraft, shop, guided tours and a Lappish, Sami museum.
In the company I also use my creativity with my handicraft, music and weaving to share my thoughts about life and how the environment of South Lappland affects our lives. From my inner self to an external reality I use oil painting and weaving to share feelings and thoughts.
An other way to present my feelings is through jojk and songs. Finnmork is the name of my musicgroup. Our speciality is jojk drums and throatsong. O in my husbands and my workshop
Our handicrafting takes place in our workshop we have built at our home in Malgonäs Vilhelmina. There we have an inspiring atmosphere for creating where we live near the nature with a marvelleus view over the lake Malgomaj to 100 km away were the mountain Marsfjällen rices in the horizon
