Pushing the Boundaries

Exploring the Creative Journey of Leisa Rich

Join Mastrius Founder Julie deBoer as she sits down for a LIVE interview with Leisa Rich, a remarkable multidisciplinary artist and seasoned educator.

Leisa is a mixed-media artist known for her highly innovative use of materials and assemblage, including free-motion stitching and manipulation of a fascinating material called Fosshape®. With a focus on tactile experiences, from large scale installations to wearable sculptures, she continuously pushes creative boundaries that invite viewer interaction.

Leisa began weaving in 1975 and has been experimenting ever since.

“I believe that it should not be a hard and fast rule that we must do one thing and stick with it! As a comprehensive and rich human being, your personal creative voice can be expressed through a multitude of styles and mediums.” ~ Leisa Rich

Leisa holds an MFA, a BFA, and BA in Art Ed degrees, and has been teaching for 48 years across the U.S. & Canada. Her award winning work is featured in numerous publications, including books and magazines, and is held in prestigious collections such as Delta Airlines Inc., Hilton Hotels Inc., and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Assemblage Art | Mixed Media | Textiles

The primary focus in my mentor group will be on “experimentalism.” Take your work in unexpected creative directions through new, unique approaches to materials, techniques, and ideas!
From dryer lint to sculptural industrial fiber materials, from heat image transfers to stitching wet paint, I have been creatively pushing boundaries for 48 years! I’m eager to share what I’ve learned with you.
Leverage new power in your art through collaborative feedback and directed, independent experimentation in your studio. You’ll get short assignments in between sessions, along with practical strategies to overcome creative blocks. You’ll learn to break any restrictive stereotypes of what constitutes a “body of work”. You’ll gain skills to become more productive and more prolific, and get your work out there to be appreciated and collected.
Artists working in a wide range of mediums such as fiber arts, textiles, mixed media, collage, textural paintings, sculpture, and beyond, will benefit from these dynamic mentor sessions.

Let’s go on a journey of deep, experimental growth!
