Linda Campbell began making art quilts in mid-life as a way to bring balance to her life. Quilts appeal to her as a metaphor because they keep you warm and safe in the dark of night. For this reason, her quilts often contain psychological and dream images. She works spontaneously, usually starting with a thought or an idea, allowing the concept to emerge over time. It feels like a great gift,
when she finishes a quilt, to figure out something new about herself.
Linda often uses photo transfers on muslin or silk organza. She loves the transparency of organza and uses it to layer images. She also discharges and dyes her own fabric. Most of her quilts include some hand stitching, beading or found objects. Linda is a member of Edge Gallery in Denver (www.edgeart.org) and had her first solo show in January of 2008. She lives in central Denver and is involved with many non-profit organizations in Denver focusing on building strong communities. She has three adult children and enjoys biking and the outdoors.
