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.
Her studio nestles in the countryside on the edge of Glynde in Sussex where she paints outdoors and in the studio, encouraging observation of her subject followed by contemplation and experimentation in the painting process. She paints in oil on canvas and lately on the smooth surface of aluminium too, switching between the surfaces.
Linda’s work is concerned with Nature and includes the close study of fruits, berries and blossom in treasured bowls and expands to broader views of nearby woodlands. Her landscapes are more than figurative representations of a location, they seek 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.
