Llinos Owen (b.1998) is a Welsh Fine Art Textiles artist, currently based and works in South London after recently graduating from Wimbledon College of Arts (UAL) with a BA Fine Art Degree.
Owen's textile art practice explores the female figure and portraiture through the mediums of rug hooking and embroidery to create wall tapestries inspired by the themes of identity, autobiography, youth and storytelling. Owen's textile wall hangings often references her Welsh heritage and influential life experiences which explores the relationship between narrative and self. Identity and gender are important themes within Owen's practice as the materials and techniques she explores acknowledges the history of feminine identities and the historical traditional roles of women in the domestic space.
Although the artist predominately works with textile materials, Owen's practice is heavily drawing focused and still considers her thinking and approach to making as being very painterly.
