Artist of the Month - June
Lisa Lumsden - Textiles
“Textile design, dyeing and printing is a relatively new creative discipline for me. I was originally trained as a custom designer/shoemaker with South Australia’s very talented Eugenia Neave. But two children later my artistic passions have changed and now I dream of colour and pattern. I am inspired to use vibrant colour and create contemporary, bold, often busy, organic and layered patterns.
I do not strive for identical repeat prints and perfection. In fact I yearn for the glorious imperfections of original artwork in our mass produced world. I like to hand print large pieces of fabric using silk screens, stencils, block printing, shibori and anything else that creates interesting patterns. I hand mix all my own dye colours and make my print pastes from scratch. I then cut and sew the pieces into quilt covers, other bedding, cushions, table linen and sometimes upholstery.”
