Lorraine Stobie - Textile Artist
I live on the west coast of
After many years in various business ventures followed by early retirement, I now have the freedom to pursue my lifelong creative interests.
My creative interests are varied. For many years I was involved in decorative painting. I eventually ventured into quilting including surface design which provided an outlet for my love of painting with textiles. This progressed into fabric collage, digital collage and various forms of mixed media. I have an interest in paper arts with a focus on hand made books and cards. More recently I have developed an interest in hand embroidery techniques and in specific crazy quilting. I am currently experimenting with combining stitching with paper arts.
I have taught decorative painting, quilting/textile art, fabric collage, various mixed media techniques and paper arts including books and cards.
I continue to dye and paint both fabric and paper but my focus today is dyeing my own threads for my stitching ventures. You can see my threads in my Etsy shop.
I hope you enjoy your visit. Your comments and/or queries are always welcome!
