Living and working on a farm in Burgessville, Ontario, Oxford County, provides artist Linda Yeoman with lots of inspiration. She is inspired by the beauty and shapes of gourds and they provide an ideal medium for Linda to create contemporary sculptures. In addition to her gourd sculptures she also creates unique mixed media collages.
Linda’s collages take her away from the farm on a journey to far off exotic places. By using images of various people and places and incorporating beautiful Japanese washi papers she is planted in this far off land. Many of the fibrous papers are embedded with plant materials that keep them close to nature and home.
Then there are the collages that takes Linda back to remembering what things used to look and be like – the humor in vintage ads and the huge contrast to what things look like and sound like today – for Linda her art is a never ending adventure.
