A textile artist, living and working in Western Australia, Linda initially trained as a graphic artist before studying at Curtin University, where she achieved a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Art, majoring in Fibre/Textiles.
Living in the hills area of Perth, Linda’s love of nature allows her to both draw on nature for inspiration, and to protect the environment through her personal commitment to reducing the impact of fibre on landfill.
Linda, one of our Gifter Artisans, is an active member of the Armadale Society of Artists and the quote below is from their website:
Colour, texture and pattern are important in my work and I love the tactile quality of textiles. My inspiration often comes from nature. Drawing or photos from my Roleystone bush environment may begin my creative process, along with collecting and using many techniques and materials. I enjoy the idea of making something special from offcuts or found fabrics while reducing waste going to landfill. My work ranges from framed works, art quilts/wall hangings to scarves, bags and purses, cushions, cards”.Armadale Society of Artists
With a passion for print, dye and stitch, Linda’s specialty area is surface design on fabric, print and dye, but she enjoys most forms of textile practice. Her other favourites are free machine embroidery, cloque, mixed media, and quilting. Really, she is happy working with anything that involves colour and texture! The products she makes include wall pieces, bags, and wearable items.
