Linda's work takes a love of history and archaeology into a range of differing pieces of art.
Boat forms reflect ancient wrecks found and still being discovered in rivers
and water courses around the country, these early boats having planks
stitched with willow and fibres. Shards of small pots and vessels excavated
by archaeologists inform textile pieces and small books.
Work is carried out using thread, fabric, paper, stitch and wire. Some work
being constructed from handmade cords individually stitched to create a
vessel, others from machine and hand stitch onto water soluble fabric This
method creates a delicate cloth, perhaps indicating a more high status
object. The Cotswold countryside has recently inspired some small framed
The work evolves and changes from piece to piece and small 'finds'are
added when near completion.
Visits to view other artists are always enjoyed and a favourite artist Grayson
Perry gives inspiration with his love and enthusiasm for his art. History
books both fiction and non fiction feature highly plus lots of walks around
this lovely part of the country.
