About The Artist
Linda works in water-based mixed media with an innovative, non-traditional approach focusing on texture. She exploits the physical properties of different water-based media and papers and often uses collage to enable her to mix paper surfaces to achieve different textural effects. She enjoys painting coastal subjects and urban scenes including construction sites.
Living near Reading in Berkshire, in 2019 she instigated and co-curated an exhibition inspired by Oscar Wilde’s The Ballad of Reading Gaol. Further inspired by the campaign to Save Reading Gaol to create an Arts and Culture Centre, she organised the Reading Gaol Hug which saw the Gaol surrounded by 1000 people linking hands. In 2020, she co-authored the book 'Reading’s Influential Women' published by Two Rivers Press.
