Linnea Balmer

HUMMBLEBEE DESIGNS — TEXTILE ART

Linnea Balmer (formerly Linnea Rochester) has always been a crafty, artistic individual, and at a very young age her parents infected her with ceaseless curiosity. In her creative evolution, she started with macramé and jewelry of all sorts, hand sewing and crochet, and started sewing patchwork and clothing on a larger scale after she and Ian met in the 2001. In winter of ’03 she stepped into the amazing world of lampwork borosilicate glass.

In school, Linnea studied art and visual communications. She loves trying to apply artistic principles to the multiple media she uses, and breaking down images to be used in applique pieces or drawn in glass. She is intently interested in the processes of her art and inspired by the world around her to create more!
