Wet graphite, pencil, ink, watercolour, wet Artgfraph, gesso, and copper-leaf on Arches watercolour paper.

Self portrait of the artist in her winter clothes. The drawing was built in layers with copper-leaf added. Abandoned for a couple of weeks, the drawing was retrieved, and then further layered, scraped, and scrubbed until the final effect. Layers of transparent gesso and spray fixative create a muted organic visual surface to the drawing, similar to the layers found in natural stone materials such as granite and marble.This drawing is an extension on a current theme that Linda is working on.

I grew up on a mixed farm, until I went to high school aged 11 in the Wimmera district in Victoria Australia. At high school, unable to timetable both Art and Math, I studied the latter by correspondence in the school library. I was not very disciplined and spent most of my time looking through Art books. Later, I completed a Diploma in Fine Art (Painting), and a Graduate Diploma (Sculpture). Wanting to travel, I gained further qualifications in teaching, linguistics, and languages.

My work is largely auto-biographical and incorporates elements of my history and my future goals – even before I am consciously aware of these goals or historical references myself. I am currently drawing with a variety of mark-making media, and painting in both acrylic and oils.

I believe that practice, and physiological and mental predispositions, combined with life and incidental circumstances, confirm the direction and so-called talent of any individual. As humans who have evolved and endured, we sought patterns in nature which helped our species to survive. Now we revive those patterns in our culture. We see relationships everywhere; in nature, mathematics, science, storytelling, music and in the visual arts etc. We often are unconsciously aware of these patterns.
