Lynda Monk
Mixed Media Textile Artist



 

I am a mixed-media textile artist, using materials such as Kunin Felt, Tyvek and Lutradur to create textured and unusual surfaces.

Inspired mainly by rust and corrosion, I stitch, burn and melt these materials before adding layers of acrylic mediums and colour.
 
Exploring new techniques is always exciting and I have recently been using Thermofax Screens combined with Xpandaprint and Lutradur to create surfaces I call 'fragments'.

I teach my techniques in workshops to groups, clubs and guilds around the UK including workshops at ArtVanGo, and residential courses at Missenden Abbey. I have also appeared at the major shows either with my own stand or demonstrating different techniques on the 'ArtVanGo' stand.

Currently I have 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.
