Textile + Visual Artist, Linny Giffin

You can find the work of Linny Giffin all over DC if you know where to look... like the pom pom archway + lighting hanging over the @tigerforkdc bar, or the macrame curtain at the new @shelovesmedc shop. She even works in flowers - last year she created a "living loom" on the front of the @thelemoncollective building (where she's also a co-founder). And she put up an amazing and totally #instagrammable hanging garden at @makeofficesgloverpark.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As you can tell, Linny's work revolves around large scale multidisciplinary installation + fiber art. She credits her gorgeous and imaginative creations with following her own voice and her favorite practice: constantly brainstorming new ideas.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Linny's collab dream list crosses her typical industries to include @Rodarte and @kellywearstler - yes, please! As a visual storyteller, we would love to see what she would bring to life with them. And we're also excited to see her latest large format piece of art - coming soon to a boutique laundromat in DC this year.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When she's not working on custom pieces for her clients, you can find her shopping at local faves @goodwooddc + @rewilddc or grabbing a bite to eat at @eatatelle. She also recently starting taking voice lessons from Cardon Studio. She jokes, "I don't go out that much but I promise I'm fun."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recently, @designsponge featured Linny's gorgeous Mount Pleasant apartment - and you should definitely check out the piece (link in her bio). Her 350 square foot home functions as both her living + studio space, and every inch is a perfect reflection of her feminine, eclectic aesthetic.

To learn more about Linny's work, give her a follow at @linnyfriend + visit the @thelemoncollective at their new location on Upshur! Thanks for letting us share your inspiring work, lady.
