Linda comes from a quilting background but had a hard time following the many rules of traditional quilting. However, she loved sewing and creating her own patterns. Over time she developed her own style with out rules. She worked by instincts and is influenced by travels, found objects, gathering things, hand crafted items, sights , sounds, and colors.
Linda added to her own knowledge by taking classes, going to museums, art retreats and surrounding herself with other like minded individuals. By combining all kinds of media with stitching, she has created unique works of art.
A big part of her creative process is sharing what she has learned. She have taught all over the country and have been published in several local and national magazine's. She works at her art everyday using her favorite motto "What if and Why not ".
