Ramona Salo is a textile artist and clothing designer based in Gáivoutna, Sápmi. Her works are rooted in Sámi culture, where thoughts about time, connection to nature and Indigenous philosophies are tools for navigating in different landscapes. Her practice focuses on textile work in contact with the body and landscape, and tells stories across time and space. She also explores her objects as storytellers through performance art, and has produced several performances in collaboration with other artists.

Her work has been purchased by the Norwegian National Museum, Oslo, RiddoDuottarMuseat, Center of Northern peoples / Davvi álbmogiid guovddáš OS, Sápmi, and the Nordenfjeldske National Museum of Decorative Arts and Design, Trondheim. In 2019 she was the recipient of the Design and Architecture Norway DOGA award for newcomers. Ramona Salo holds a BA in Art and Design from Oslo University College (OsloMet), a BA in Criminology from the Faculty of Law at the University of Oslo, UiO and a MA in Design from Oslo National Academy of the Arts.
