I'm a textile artist, independent curator, faculty wife, mother of two above average daughters.
Linda Frost is a lifetime Kansas resident, and has resided in Lawrence for the last 30 years. Frost's work has covered virtually the entire spectrum of quilting, from reproducing antique quilts using reproduction fabrics and traditional patterns to creating abstract pieces while exploring with contemporary quilt artists.
Frost's work has been exhibited in galleries and quilt shows through out the country; most recently at the Page-Walker Arts Center in Cary, NC, the Irene French Gallery in Merriam, KS, and locally at the Lawrence Art Center and Watkins Historical Museum. Her Civil War era reproduction quilts have been pictured in several books by Barbara Brackman, and her "Patchwork Hawk" was part of the Lawrence "Hawks on Parade" exhibit.
I use layered textiles and the quilting stitch to create line and shape. This work has provided a means for me to take ethereal thought and emotion and put them into a physical form.
