Lotta Helleberg's Profile

About

I am a textile artist with a background in graphic design and print making. I work primarily with linen and utilize techniques in which fresh leaves and other plant material create the surface pattern. During leaf printing the leaves are coated with paint and pressed onto the fabric, creating intricate replicas of the original form. I also work with natural dyes and eco-printing, where the plants themselves release color pigments which bond with the fabric. The resulting impressions are incorporated into quilts, fabric collages, and a variety of functional and decorative objects. I was born in Sweden and now live in Charlottesville, Virginia, USA. For more information about my work and inspirations please visit my blog, www.inleaf.blogspot.com.
