Linda exhibits internationally. Since graduating from Winchester School of Art in 2004 she has had two London solo shows. Selected as artist in residence at Lansdowne Club Mayfair, her painting ” In the Heat of Battle” is part of the club’s art collection and can be seen in the billiard room. Linda exhibits regularly at the Mall Galleries London, where her work has been selected and sold by the Discerning Eye, The Armed Forces Art Society and the Society of Women Artists. Her paintings are highly choreographed lyrical abstractions where composition and structure underpin her intuitive and experimental working practice.
As she explains:
Having spent years working on paper and exploring the exciting fusion between Chinese expressionistic ink painting with the dashing virtuoso style of abstract expressionism my I felt ready to “return to canvas” with colour taking centre stage. My thoughts go from the Scottish colourists, to Richter and and back to the wonderful Helen Frankenthaler.
Although studio based many different things inspire me. It may be a specific moment in life, or witnessing the beauty and grandeur of nature or the hustle and bustle of the cities. Taking risks all the time, balancing the gap between chaos and control to ultimately produce harmony is how I work.
Whatever the beginnings, ultimately, without recourse to realism, I want to create a space where it is possible to stop and dream a while. where the paint is free to use its own unique, yet universal language to open the door to that special place, somewhere on the edge – between reality and fantasy.
