Linda is a lifelong crafter with experience in a variety of projects and media completed. With the 12-week silk painting for income generation training kindly sponsored by the SPMTrust she moved to the next level as an artisan. Linda is graduating from the training with the work featured publicly as "Silk Artistry, Crafty Creations & more," where we can see her energy-filled creation on silk.
One can literally feel the energy encapsulated in the hand-painted silk scarves. Here is what Linda says about her first silk scarves collection:
"I chose my collection to reflect the various colour combinations of the rainbow and my love of flowers. My favourite technique is the blossom design, hence the name, "Rainbow Blossom" Something pretty to wear, something soft against the harsh weather to brighten up a dull winter day."by Linda Dufresne

Here are Lorna's words about her first collection of silk scarves, a description that reads like poetry. A look into the artist's soul:
"Moon Dust in the Garden"
"Heading out at sunrise to set up for the Christmas market with the addition of my newest silk collection, "Moon Dust in the Garden ."When I set my work out for others to see, there is always a feeling of vulnerability, yet very satisfying as an accomplishment of my own interpretation of my world. Hand-painting silk has started to have ideas exploding in my head! There is so much I want to share and do with this beautiful wearable art! I can't wait to continue on this journey, and with our instructor's guidance, we now have a group of artists linked together in support and creativity! There are no limits to all our different creations! So thankful and grateful to live in this beautiful, inspiring, Peace Country!"by Lorna Penner
