Linda Izan – Meet the Artist

A little textile inspiration from my YouTube Textile Collection. Today it features textile art by artist Linda Izan.

Linda is a conceptual visual artist. Her work involves many techniques including digital art, photography & embroidery. Linda uses photograms & Photoshop to design her unique cloth. Each piece is then embellished with layers of applique, hand & machine embroidery. Linda explains her design concepts and shares her beautiful work with us.

Linda is a member of Prism and the The Society for Embroidered Work

Selvedge Magazine – I got a mention in their Blog!

Val Holmes was recently interviewed by Selvedge magazine. The brilliant article ends with a chat about a recent Youtube I created about Val.

As well as the Knitting & Stitching Show, people will be able to see my work in person in the new gallery, Fil et Encre, 29 rue du Marché, La Flotte. Online at my website and you can also see me talking about this exhibition on the Arnold’s Attic Youtube channel.

Val Holmes’s Legacy Impressions is at The Knitting & Stitching Show at Harrogate Convention Centre, Harrogate until 1st December 2019.

Thank you to Selvedge and thank you Val.
