Linda Richardson  artist printmaker

Linda RichardsonBiography

Born in the small village of Little Bardfield, North West Essex I moved to the beautiful Shetland Isles in October 2016. My home and studio are in Voe, on the hillside overlooking Olnafirth. I have always been inspired by my immediate environment, especially the wildlife. A keen gardener, plants provide a source of inspiration too. I have a very soft spot for cats and chickens which have featured in my work over the years. Shetland has wildlife in abundance. The ever changing weather and shoreline present a wealth of subject matter.

As a painter I work in watercolour or acrylic. I also create mixed media pieces using wax crayon and watercolour. My printmaking encompasses etching and linocuts.

Previously a part time tutor in adult education, I now teach printmaking workshops in Shetland.
