Working as a full time artist and tutor for 13 years Linda has grown her business including her gallery BROAD SKIES GALLERY and PAINT n CANVAS HOLIDAYS. She is passionate about PAINTING, NORFOLK and THE BROADS, as such is on the executive committee of Broads Tourism. Inspired by everything around her, she prefers the freedom of painting from life, en plein air in the countryside, at home & abroad.
Her philosophy is "Wherever you look there is inspiration”, she paints to uplift the observer.

She has appeared in local & national press as well as on Radio & Television. Linda’s previous career as a police sergeant in the Metropolitan Force has given her the skills needed to organise and think on her feet, she has seen the worst people can do to each other so appreciates the life she is involved in now.
