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.
