Linda was born in Lincolnshire, she studied Fine Art at Grimsby School of Art and at Kingston University. She shows her work in Sussex and London as well as at Hybrid in Devon.
Linda works from a shepherd’s hut designed as a studio which nestles in the countryside on the edge of Glynde in East Sussex. She paints outdoors and in the studio, encouraging observation of her subject followed by contemplation and experimentation in the studio. She paints in oil on canvas and on the smooth surface of aluminium too, switching between the surfaces. She also makes etchings using copper plates often printing with chine collé and weathered papers.
Linda’s work is concerned with Nature and includes the close study of nests and birds and of fruits, berries and blossom resting in treasured bowls. It also encompasses broader views of nearby woodlands. More than figurative representations of a location or subject, in her work Linda seeks to express the sensations experienced within the countryside and offer a sense of place.
In all her work the seasons are central, the various subtleties and effects of light and weather inspiring and energising Linda's sensitive paintings and prints.
