Cecilia Blomberg grew up in Sundsvall in northern Sweden and moved to Stockholm in 1970 where she attended the National College of Art, Craft and Design (Konstfack) and received her MFA in 1976. Though she specializes in tapestry, she has also worked as a muralist and a graphics illustrator. 

Since 1977 she has worked in the United States, producing tapestries for public and private collections, and commissioned works for hospitals, banks and for the headquarters of the Bonneville Power Administration in Portland, Oregon. She was commissioned to create major pieces for the new Washington State University campus in Vancouver, and for Grays Harbor College in Aberdeen, Washington. She recently finished a commissioned piece for the Washington State Arts Commission for McMicken Heights Elementary School in Seatac, Washington. 

Ms. Blomberg's tapestries have appeared in numerous national and international exhibitions and her work is represented in Contemporary Textile Art - Scandinavia, The State of the Arts, The State of the Crafts, Fiberarts Design Book I, IV , V and VI, World Tapestry Today, and a number of magazines. She spent two years in Scotland, working on a project recreating the Hunt of the Unicorn tapestries. Here is a link to an article about the project by journalist Agneta Gustafsson which appeared in a Swedish arts and crafts magazine. Here also is a link to Stirling Castle's official website about the project. She lives with her husband in Gig Harbor, Washington.
