Linda is best known for her Arctic paintings. The large simplified oil canvases tell the story of climate change and are based on her many expeditions to the polar regions and what she has learned from scientists, her Inuit friends, and painting on the land.
    Having travelled to the polar regions a dozen times in the past decade, the vast Arctic landscape has affected the way she approaches the Ontario landscape. She now paints in a style emphasizing simplified form, colour, and light.
    Linda is a former board member of the Society of Canadian Artists, an elected Signature Member of Artists for Conservation, former Art Liaison for International Polar Year, and founder of Polar Artists Group and the Arctic Quest 2006 project. She represented polar artists at the launch of International Polar Year in Paris, France in 2007, participated in the Circumpolar Artists Round Table discussions at the United Nations Office in Geneva, and in 2008 and 2009 she represented Canada at the Northern Lights Festival in the Russian Arctic. Linda has taught art workshops for the TDCSB, McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Students on Ice Climate Change expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica, in Russia, and the United States.
    Linda’s painting Follow Your Dreams was presented to Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor, the Hon. James Bartleman in 2006 by the TDCSB. Linda has won several awards for her work which can be found in collections across Canada, United States, Russia, and England.
