After graduating in photography, Linda pursued a photographic career for some years before deciding to leave the commercial world behind and follow her own creative journey.
Out of her photographic ideas, Linda began to think in a more three dimensional way, with a desire to build. This took her back to her childhood, when she would hunt around the house for materials to build with. Making things is about fine detail, which Linda loves, along with miniature things - building miniature things sometimes, other times miniature scenes.
"The idea of creating your own little world fascinates me. I have also never been very good at describing something in words. So the idea of creating my own mini visual 3D version of something I've seen or thought of took off!
Originally I liked the idea of memory boxes, and enjoyed the work of Joseph Cornell. Today, however, I'd say that my work is slightly more abstract. Sometimes a scene, sometimes just a statement. Not all of them are in boxes as I really enjoy the challenge of finding something very different to house my work in! The materials I use are mainly hand built by me, sometimes even combining one of my photographic works as a background."
