Recently I have been spending some time going through my large collection of books, photos and files of resource material, gathering thoughts about work for our up and coming group exhibition. I found three very interesting interviews on the internet of three very different artists working in the medium of tapestry. I though that I would share them here. The first interview is with Scottish artist Joan Baxter, the second Canadian artist Linda Wallace and the third with British artist Jilly Edwards. I find that no matter how often you look at art, it somehow takes on a whole new meaning when you can read about the artist. Their inspiration, choice of medium and see them practicing their craft.
There is a virtual tour of Joan Baxter’s studio here.
