Working as a full time artist and tutor for twelve years Linda is inspired by everything around her, she prefers the freedom of painting from life, en plein air in the countryside, at home & abroad. As it evolves her work becomes looser in style, brighter in colour and tone. Working in Watercolour, Oils, Pastels and Acrylics, described as an informative and entertaining demonstrator, she is willing to adapt her subject & media to the groups requirements. The demonstration may be from life or from a recent inspiration it will always be fresh and original.

Her philosophy is "Wherever you look there is inspiration she paints to uplift the observer. Her work is in private & corporate collections worldwide, and has been selected for exhibition at the Designer & Artists Copyright Society.

A qualified tutor, Linda has written for Leisure Painter & led courses for Artist & Illustrator Magazine, she is a demonstrator for Chroma Atelier Acrylics and professional Associate of the Society of all Artist's. As well as her own workshops & holidays Linda leads courses for the Field Studies Council at Flatford Mill and Epping Forest, the How Hill Trust in Norfolk and Cheddar Gallery in Somerset. She has appeared in local & national press as well as on Radio & Television.

Linda is willing to travel countrywide to demonstrate or run workshops.
