Linda spends her time between Brisbane and Rockhampton both teaching mixed media and working on her own arts practice. She is a member of the Capricornia Printmakers Inc and has set up her pottery studio at home. Linda regularly visits Rockhampton and outback Queensland, and travels interstate to teach workshops in printmaking and mixed media.
Linocuts are Linda's favoured printmaking technique... "while it's a meditative, slow method, there's a directness that makes the finished result a quick and satisfying one".

'Celebrating the Whale' (2022). Edition: VE1/3, linoprint, watercolour.
Isn't it interesting that the largest animals in the world eat the smallest. Welcome to the whale.
They are the filters of the ocean in every way. Whales capture carbon from the atmosphere, recirculate the ingested fish and plankton through their waste and create nutrients that are crucial to the primary production of the marine ecosystem.
