'Exploring Creative Surfaces'
Lynda is a mixed-media textile artist. She uses materials such as Kunin Felt, Tyvek and Lutradur to create textured and unusual surfaces.
Inspired mainly by rust and corrosion, Lynda stitches, burns and melts these materials before adding layers of acrylic mediums and colour.
She loves to explore new techniques and has recently been using a combination of foil, tissue papers and polyester fabrics to create metallic effect surfaces.
Lynda is a regular contributor to Workshop on the Web and teaches workshops to groups, clubs and guilds around the UK including workshops at ArtVanGo and residential courses at Missenden Abbey. She has appeared at the major shows either with her own stand or demonstrating different techniques on the 'ArtVanGo' stand.
Lynda currently has three books published by d4daisy:
- 'Stitching the Textured Surface', explores the use of gesso and molding paste to create amazing textured surfaces.
- 'Fabulous Surfaces' uses tissue papers combined with foils and acrylic mediums producing metallic effect surfaces and more.
- 'Exploring Creative Surfaces' looks at creating more unique surfaces using scrim, polyester fabrics, foils and mixed media products.
