Linda started her career as a knitwear designer after gaining an M Des from the Royal College of Art. She began painting about 26 years ago when her children were small and she needed a creative outlet. She took part in Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios from 2002 and continued for 14 years, she is returning to this next year for North Norfolk Open Studios. Her gallery in Wells, opens mainly by appointment, if you wish to visit , please contact Linda through this website.
She had her first solo exhibition at Garden House Gallery in Cromer In 2008, and since then has exhibited in various galleries and venues in Norfolk. This website has consistently brought in new customers, especially during lockdown. Last April she held a large exhibition with fellow Wells artist John Richter at Wells Maltings entitled 'Inspired by Wells', and was delighted by the interest and sales generated.
She works in both oils and acrylics and uses a palette knife and thickening mediums, to build up thick impasto layers. Painting in her studio, always to music, she then combines things she has seen on her walks with the ideas in her head. Painting for her is intense and physical, she works quickly building up layers of colour and texture until she feels she has achieved her goal. Mixing colours is something she spends a lot of time over and she often intensifies colours to make a bigger statement.
