Hi! I'm Linda Hamilton and I am a paper artist who creates sculptures of flowers and foliage. I have been making paper flowers for over 10 years. These replica flowers are made of various types of paper, wire, tape, and paint and range in size from tiny to many times life size. My flowers are becoming more and more realistic as I try to capture every detail from nature. I love to create a sense of wonder with my work- and to encourage a respect and interest in nature- especially flowers!
I know that many people have a strong emotional connection with flowers and this is something I love to explore. Each of my pieces is designed and handmade in my home studio in Almonte, Ontario. I have been interested in art since childhood, and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts at York University (2003) where I studied drawing, painting, and art history. I have taught art classes to children for many years and love to see how creativity expresses itself in young people. My own two children are a great source of inspiration and encouragement as well.
