A few years ago Linda discovered her passion for painting landscapes and seascapes, she now enjoys creating on a far larger scale in an impressionistic style, her painting often described as having a sense of peace and tranquility.

She is continuously amazed and inspired by the great outdoors and particularly loves spending time at the coast, particularly Northumberland, Yorkshire, Devon and Cornwall. After many years away from the area latterly in Texas, USA, she now lives in the historic City of Durham.
