About

It often starts with an old white sheet.

 

Then a surface treatment is used. Techniques include dyeing, painting, stamping, rusting, screen printing, thermafax, or leaves and natural dyes are applied.  Colour is added and the appearance of texture evolves.

 

My drop cloths and cleaning rags are saved.  

 

Next I wash and iron each new piece of fabric lovingly and add them to my ever growing stash of hand treated and commercial fabrics.

 

Now I am ready to begin.

 

Mostly working in a collage fashion, I try to develop my pieces with a hint of abstraction, and a whole lot of colour. Providing the viewer with the emotion of the moment is my goal.

 

It is hard to stand out in today’s art landscape. For me, my subjects are personal and my use of hand stitch adds personality. My art is a calming factor in my life.

More recently I find my pieces are more reflective of the times with titles such as "Shattered" and "A Way through it".  Although the subject matter can be darker and the emotions more conflicted,  my colour palette has remained joyful.  This reflects my natural optimistic nature that all will work out in the end.

I hope that my viewers can sense the joy in my work.

I currently reside in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and can be found on Instagram and on my website:  lindacoultertextileart.com
