Linda draws on old or ancient wisdom to find what it has to say to the modern situation.  She makes work that engages the imagination and intuition and tries to make a creative space for the viewer to connect their inner nature with their outer nature to form ideas that are not rooted in convention, reason or rationality.  However neither are they pure fantasy that provides and escape from life.  She wants to awaken the senses to the beauty, magic and wonder of the world and to activate the attention to the mystery of the human experience.

She argues that whilst the genius of the modern world has produced life transforming scientific breakthroughs, it has also lost meaning. We can drown in statistics and psychology and physiology, and in the information regarding causes and effect of conflict and climate change, but at the same time the meaning and value of the human and our place in the cosmos is lost.  Her art is a small attempt at championing the work of imagination and intuition that she believes is intrinsic to the well-being of the human spirit that has been numbed by a mechanistic and materialistic world view.
