Lindsay Stead
RBC Emerging Artists Studio Setup Award for $5,000

Lindsay received formal training in furniture and textile design from Sheridan College’s School of Crafts and Design. Although her primary area of study was in furniture design, a course in the textile department left a lasting impression on Lindsay and she has focused her work in textiles, in particular quilt making, since finishing college. Lindsay’s work is heavily influenced by traditional quilts, both in design and processes. Most of her work is based on traditional patterns that she adapts by scale, asymmetry, solid colours, and the use of negative space to create more contemporary pieces. All of Lindsay’s quilts are completely quilted by hand; the tiny, imperfect hand stitches add a poignant contrast to the graphic nature of her work.

Lindsay’s work has been shown throughout Canada, the United States and Japan. Most recently, as part of “Black & White, Twelve Quilts in New York, NY”; a show curated and organized by Lindsay which showcased new work from twelve contemporary quilt artists.
