Since setting up in full time business in July 2001, Linda has enjoyed 3 successful solo exhibitions, has reproduced a collection of her paintings into limited edition print and continues to sell originals and paint commissioned portraits for individual customers.
She has enjoyed an exhibition at the W.H. Patterson Gallery, Albemarle Street, Mayfair, London and is looking forward to an exhibition of all her existing and new works at the Castle Douglas Art Gallery, Dumfriesshire, on 7th September - 17th September 2011.
