Ceramics, drawing & oil painting
Linda uses oil paint, pencil crayon, pastel and ceramics to make 2D and 3D pieces often inspired by her travels and her love of African arts. Though her degree is in Fine Art she has been increasingly drawn to working in clay, using hand building methods to produce plant pots, sculptures, 'facepots' and plaques.
Her 'Yogacats' have been very popular with yogis and cat lovers alike, and this year she has made a number of small cat and 'kitten' sculptures inspired by her own cats.
Linda likes to work with craftcrank stoneware clay for the colour and texture, but also for its durability so that her work can be placed indoors or outside in the garden.
