Linda St Angelo
Growing up in New Mexico and being
exposed to a variety of art had a significant influence on Linda
becoming an artist. She has been an artist for more than 3 decades, but
gravitated to felting when she was introduced to the medium about 6
years ago. She is basically self-taught with some classroom training,
and has collaborated with renowned felters in other countries, including
Canada and Russia. Her work has been featured in Felt magazine and the
digital magazine ISSUU.
She designs one of a kind “wearable
art” pieces using the softest Merino Wool roving and different types of
woven silk from Uzbekistan Thailand and China, and often incorporates
various exotic fibers such as silk, yak, bamboo, Seacell, pearl, etc.,
to give her pieces different looks and feels.
Her wearable art clothing has been sold at specialty boutiques and galleries in Santa Fe, Taos, Aspen and Solana Beach.
