Meet the Instructor Series
Fly in the Fibre introduces our favourite instructors continuing with Lynne Mizera from Lynne’s Art World.
Lynne Mizera, Mixed Media Artist
“I have been a creative soul all my life and I HAVE to create something everyday or I become emotionally unbalanced!”
This statement describes Lynne’s level of commitment to creativity perfectly. As an artist and teacher, Lynne has an in-depth relationship to colour, an openness to learning new ways to display the creativity in her mind, a love for sharing her wide breadth of aritistic knowledge, and she strives to empower her students to believe in themselves when it comes to creating art.
Lynne has had her work published in several magazines in Canada, the US and the UK, and she gravitates towards vibrant, bright colours and bold but simple layouts. Some of the magazines include Mixed Up Mag, Canadian Scrapbooker, Scrap N’ Art Magazine, and the Crop N’ Create Magazine.
Lynne has also brought her mixed media eye over to the fibre arts. She has experimented with needle felting and wet felting and has converted a few of her mixed media pieces into fibre.
“With one of my art journal pages up on the easel for inspiration I sat down to paint a canvas using wool fibres, and by combining my knowledge of painting techniques with my newly acquired needle felting skills my first wool painting, titled “Flowers In A Vase”, was born. This piece came together so quickly and easily that I knew I wanted to make more and I found myself painting with wool more than with paint. Over the past few months I have completed six wool fibre paintings, each inspired by one of my mixed media pieces, and I have two more pieces in the works and there is a wonderful new energy in my studio these days as I merge my newly discovered love of fibre with my passion for mixed media art.”
