Using materials as varied as encaustic (beeswax), foam insulation, rice paper, oil, graphite, and other mixed material, the exhibit contains constructions, paintings, digital prints as well as a site-specific gallery installation using a reconstructed Haitian tomb. Life from decay, shelter from the rubble are some of the subjects explored in this rich and complex work.

She holds a BFA in painting and lithography from Antioch College and is represented in both private and public collections. The recipient of numerous awards, residencies and fellowships Linda was most recently awarded a Creation Grant for 2009/2010 from The Vermont Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts. In addition to her studio work, Linda has been teaching painting and drawing with Burlington City Arts since 2000 and is one of the original members of 215 College Gallery in Burlington. She resides with her husband and two sons in Burlington Vermont, where she has lived since 1980.
