As a child Linda loved to 'make things'--from sand, mud from a near-by creek, Lincoln Logs and cardboard boxes. After finishing college she enjoyed a career as a teacher until attending a clay figurative workshop in Santa Fe. Over the last 9 years she has exhibited her sculptures at nationally recognized juried art festivals, galleries, exhibitions and most recently at SOFA Chicago. She has received several awards including best of show, first place in sculpture as well as recognition in national print media. She has worked with many notable figurative clay sculptors including Akio Takamori, Adrian Arleo, Cristina Cordova, Kensuka Yamada, Esther Shamazu and many others. Linda seeks to merge the idea of ‘making things’ with her fascination with people and the links and interconnections humans have with each other. Linda lives and works in Des Moines, Iowa. She can be found working at her studio at Mainframe Studios.
