Linda comes from an artistic, creative family. Her father was a talented musician, and her mother a musical theatrical actor.
Moving from New Zealand in the 1970’s, she spent a number of years in Sydney where her father pursued his music career.
Linda’s love of drawing continued, and she developed an interest in the Surrealism of Salvador Dali, encouraging her to begin painting. Her creative pursuits also encompassed the design and construction of costumes for ballet dancers.
During the 1990’s she spent six months living in the Glasshouse Mountains, before moving south to the Gold Coast. She currently lives and works in Tasmania.
Linda has exhibited in numerous group shows in Queensland and Tasmania, and has had sell-out solo shows in both states.
She has been the recipient of several art prizes, including the Stanthorpe Regional Gallery acquisition prize 2006, winner of the Border Art Prize 2009, finalist in the Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize 2012, finalist in the Glover Art Prize 2013 and 2015, and several art awards.
