She is known for both her intimate and large scale sculptures, two of the latter being on permanent public display in Sydney (the Transfield collection Pier 8/9 Walsh Bay and Hunter’s Park in Bondi). In 2012 she became the first woman to join the Decade Club of Sculpture by the Sea having exhibited for ten times in the annual exhibition at Bondi. She has received the Art Gallery Society of NSW award at Sculpture by the Sea in 2010 and 2011. In 2013 her work, The Others, was a finalist in the Wynne Prize at the AGNSW. She works in a variety of materials and is keen to share her knowledge with others. Her classes are known for their relaxed atmosphere and sense of fun which Linda brings to her work.
