Linda Gleave

textile and mixed media artist


Linda worked in the textile industry and later tutored on Visual Studies courses before developing and exhibiting individual textile art pieces.

Her personal work demonstrates an interest in landscape and the natural world through travels in this country and abroad. She draws and paints from either direct observation or photographs and manipulates the resulting imagery using image transfer techniques, direct mark-making and hand and machine stitch.

Her aim is to capture the effects of light on the landscape and the fragility of the earth through both colour and monochromatic images and the application of simple stitches. Creating a sense of movement is also an integral part of depicting the subject matter, which is often only observed fleetingly.
