Linda is a self-taught Tasman based artist, and has painted for over 20 years. Using oils as her preferred medium, she creates an eclectic range of contemporary realism and stylized artworks focusing on NZ’s naturel environment, of which she is passionate. She enjoys painting distinctive, textured and dramatic pieces with strong contrasting colour and light.
Living near sunny Motueka, off the grid and on the doorstep of the stunning Abel Tasman National Park, much of her inspiration derives from this beautiful part of New Zealand. Areas of wild, sometimes remote parts of the South Island often feature in her work, in a realistic way, but often verging on the surreal.
She has exhibited extensively around New Zealand. In 2019 Linda set up Hannan Gallery in Motueka. A gallery/working studio, Linda’s gallery in Motueka allows her to paint on site for local and visiting collectors, and for upcoming exhibitions held nationwide.
Many of her works can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.
