Discovering precious metal clay in 1998, her fascination and expertise with that medium earned her recognition as one of the foremost instructors in that field. She became Director of Education for PMC Connection in 2010 and is one of only 16 PMCC senior certifying instructors in the United States.
Linda’s striking one-of-a-kind creations are strongly influenced by environmental issues and global concerns. Her work will often incorporate a juxtaposition of “found objects” or organic components, in contrast to gold, fine silver and precious gemstones to convey a message or tell a story.
It was on an artistic excursion to Turkey in 2011 that Linda discovered nuno silk felting and again altered her artistic course. Laminating or marrying silk and wool fiber by hand, she transforms organic materials into amazingly beautiful works of wearable art. Her one of a kind shawls and scarves are produced in a modernized version of a 5,000 year old process.
Linda will be lecturing on her work on July 22nd at 7pm, as well as teaching a special workshop on Nuno Silk Felting. The workshop is offered in two sessions, 9am-1pm and 5:30-9:30pm on July 26th, all students will make their own silk-felted scarf.
