705 Heidi Lichterman
My work is in international collections. I sell directly from my studio now as I enjoy meeting people and discussing the projects directly. I weave, dyeing my silk using the Ikat technique. My scarves and shawls are about colour interactions which I am constantly challenging. the textures and light refractions are important to the final piece.
Abstract acrylic paintings of the Fens near me. I want to show the feelings that this flat, often bleak landscape evoke. Wet, windy, dark in atmosphere with huge skies: the details of the hedges and who hides there, the lodes and who swims there, the fields and who gallops there.
My wall hangings have been commissioned around the world in corporate and public spaces. I currently use copper and stainless steel wire to create a sculptural dimension. My Ikat dyed and handwoven silk scarves and shawls are sophisticated in the play with rich colour and luxurious feel.
