Faculty Profile for Lin Hannah
Haliburton School of The Arts Hannah Lin studied English Literature and Cultural Studies at Trent University and holds a diploma from the Kootenay School of the Arts fibre studio. A practicing fibre artist and arts educator, she has continued developing her passion for textiles and fibre with a range of techniques derived from traditional textiles, printmaking and mixed media. She uses predominantly natural fibres (wool, silk and paper) in a process of dying, felting, and stitching to create her pieces. She has produced wearable art, felted rugs, soft sculpture, framed compositions, mixed media collages and hand bound books. She continues to explore storytelling and the relationship between text and visual imagery, drawing on her heritage, poetry, travel and natural environment. Hannah is a member of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild and a board member of Muskoka Arts and Crafts, Inc. Her work is in several private collections and has appeared in an exhibition of felt at the Royal Ontario Museum. It is currently available at the Auburn Gallery in Gravenhurst, the Orillia Museum of Art and History, and online at www.hannahlindesigns.com.
