Traditional oil painter Linda specialises in imaginary realism. “I enjoy creating a narrative in my work,” she says, “suggesting a story, but leaving it open to the viewer’s imagination.”
Having travelled a fair bit, Linda’s experiences help inform her art. “Getting out and experiencing life is second only to practice when it comes to educating your art and fuelling creativity,” she believes.
“I’m drawn to the tactile nature of traditional media, and oils in particular are so versatile.” Some of her influences are illustrators such as Cornwell, Leyendecker, Pyle and NC Wyeth.
Linda is drawn to themes from history, lore and legend – things that have some basis in reality. “Often, it’s simply a springboard for the imagination,” she says.
