Linda Green

 

Internationally respected

textile artist

 

Evolving through experience

 

Based in her Edinburgh studio, Linda Green is a respected and established textile artist who has exhibited in Europe, Japan, the USA and widely in Britain.

 

Her work is unique and diverse, exploring and developing creative ideas through a range of textile materials and influences. Her interest in order and random processes are explored within her art practice. By taking inspiration from things as diverse as plant life, geometry and the Cosmos, she has covered a wealth of creative territory in her working life. From her initial creative concepts, Linda has a strong aesthetic sense and attention to detail which is evident in all her work resulting in award winning, extensive solo shows, invited group exhibitions to site specific installation.

 

A recent recipient of awards from Theo Moorman Trust for Weavers and Creative Scotland have taken her work on a new creative journey.

Linda has also worked with Richard Murphy Architects as colour consultant collaborating on several projects where her innovative fusion of colour and surface contribute to the ambient space.

 

To counterbalance the intensity of making, tapestry and weaving, Linda relaxes by climbing Monroes in Scotland, attending coracle making courses in the Lake District to walking along the north Cornwall coast in search of inspiration.

 

After graduating from Edinburgh College of Art following Diploma with Distinction in Tapestry, Linda completed her student career with a Post Graduate MA in Textiles at the Royal College of Art in London. Since then she has taught at a number of art schools in Scotland including Glasgow School of Art and Edinburgh College of Art.
