Lynda Heines found her love for surface design through writing a column for the local newspaper about area artists. She was so impressed by their art that she was inspired to spend more time creating, especially with fabric, dyes, and paint. Through her experiments, she discovered dyeing with ice cubes, her technique published in Quilting Arts.
In addition to ice dyeing, she also loves working with other surface design techniques including sun printing, resists, gelatin printing, and marbling. Her spin art was also published in Quilting Arts.
Lynda lives in Southern Indiana with her husband and two cats on a couple acres of land they call “Happy Acres.” Between creating art in her two studio areas, Lynda, a master gardener, helps with their large garden and fruit orchard. They also make soap, freeze and dry their harvests, and there is usually always some fresh bread in the kitchen.
