Thanks for stopping by! My name is Linda Matthews and I’m a full time digital and mixed media textile artist, designer and teacher. I love nothing more than taking my photos, turning them into digital PhotoArt, and then printing them onto fabric to create unique textile imagery to use in my art.
When you add some stitches to an image
something magical happens
I learned to sew on my mother’s treadle machine when I was about 6 or 7. I had to stand up to use the machine because my legs weren’t long enough to reach the pedal if I sat on a chair. That was a very long time ago indeed, and although I didn’t realize it at the time, this was the beginning of my creative journey with fabric and thread.
I’ve discovered over the years that my creative journey is ever evolving and I love nothing more that exploring new and innovative ways to work with fabric and thread. I love that I can combine contemporary mixed media techniques and digital technology with traditional sewing and textile art techniques to create art that has a new and fresh perspective.
These days it gives me the greatest pleasure to share what I’ve learned over the years as a way to encourage and inspire the creative spark in others. If you love to tell your story using images and words, fabric and thread, then I invite you to follow along.
