Linda’s early study was with photography, drawing and painting. Inspired by the beauty and uniqueness of the Australian landscape she decided to become a landscape artist and developed a distinctive style which uses vivid colour and detail. “I strive to capture the essence of our country from the rich redness of the Pilbara to the turquoise waters of our spectacular coastline.”

After living in Perth for 10 years and traveling extensively around Australia, Linda now calls Melbourne home where she has continues to paint, exhibit and teach. Linda is recognised as one of Australia's foremost watercolour artists and her work has been described as quirky, bold and innovative.
