Lynda Monk is a mixed media textile artist, tutor and author. Inspired mainly by rust and corrosion, she stitches, burns and melts materials such as Kunin Felt, Tyvek and Lutradur before adding acrylic mediums and colour to create textured and unusual surfaces. Lynda is currently using these surfaces to construct a range of fantastical costumes. Visit her at Art Van Go Stand 151 to find out more about her work and how you can start your own project!
Lynda is the author of four books:
• ‘Textured Surfaces’ explores the use of gesso and moulding paste to create amazing surfaces
• ‘Fabulous Surfaces’ uses tissue paper as the main ‘ingredient’ to create stunning effects
• ‘Exploring Creative Surfaces’ looks at creating more unique surfaces using scrim, polyester fabrics, foils and mixed media products.
• ‘Beautiful Bonded Surfaces’ uses Tyvek, Bondaweb and felt to create a new fabric which can be used in many different ways.
Lynda teaches workshops at ART VAN GO and all over the UK
