Flowing like an improvisational dancer loaded with many tricks and techniques to draw upon Linda's marks her canvas in a very fluid and organic way.
The forms Linda creates predominantly have a connected cellular like feel to them, evoking a range of themes from botanical flora to outer space and otherworldly. Lindas work covers darkness to calm serenity but always meaningful, beautiful and thought provoking.
If water is the connecting and nourishing element in this world it certainly is in Linda's paintings. Liquid is a dominant theme in they way she works and the realised imagery, from using a garden hose to the application of very delicate droplets on a flat canvas, water is always present. Working like a passionate teacher Linda guides and coaches her medium into where it wants to be.
