Linda is a working artist, art teacher, business women and community volunteer. For over 20 years of teaching art, she has inspired children and adult artists to express themselves with various media. In addition to sharing her love of art with her students, Linda contributes to community projects within the schools, the arts, and festivals with her artistic abilities and her sincere desire to understand and connect with her community.

Linda enjoys taking risks and trying new techniques. One of her latest bodies of works is a fusion of form, colour and texture, as she turns her canvases into sculptural and tactile trees, flowers and landscapes. She is deeply inspired by the imagery of western Canada but also draws her inspiration from her travels.

Although Linda has been a mixed media artist forever, she focused on acrylic as her main media....until the past few years where a new love has emerged......Encaustics. She splits her week doing acrylic and teaching 6 classes the first part and doing encaustics from thursday to sunday.
