Linden Lancaster is an artist who lives on a farm, near the edge of the Barmah forest, in Northern Victoria. Her unique quilts have been exhibited both nationally and internationally and featured in various publications over the past 10 years.
Linden is inspired by emotive ideas, colour and observing the environment around her. Her past work is mainly pictorial using many different themes and techniques. She is currently refining her processes, in an attempt to make her work more loose and impressionistic in style.
Much of Linden’s fabric is hand-crafted via a variety of surface design techniques, such as dyeing, discharging, painting and printing. She often uses her own photos as a starting point. She is available for commissions and to conduct workshops.
