Noelle Hamlyn

Suburbs, hand woven tissue on paper, 20 x 16 in. (51 x 40.5 cm)

Noelle Hamlyn is intrigued by the possibilities of textures and fibres to evoke emotion. Believing our sense of touch is one of the most powerful and profound vehicles of human understanding, Hamlyn is drawn to materials with strong tactile qualities and uses these as metaphors to explore experience.  

Noelle is a graduate of Sheridan Institute's Craft and Design Program (Textiles), and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her studio work has earned numerous awards and has been shown across Canada and the world. Noelle was selected to represent Canada at the International Craft Biennale in Cheongiu, South Korea. Her work has been shown at the Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad, is part of the permanent collections of the Cambridge Art Gallery and Cleveland University Hospitals, and most recently, shown as part of Love Lace International Lace Awards at the Power House Museum in Sydney, Australia.
