Linda is an award-winning artist, cultural facilitator, and environmental champion. Born in the gold-mining town of Wells, BC, she has created art since childhood.
Absorbing the impact of stories overheard of the Second World War, she retreated to the forested world surrounding her home. The worlds of culture and nature were inseparable as she sought to protect the spirit within them. She co-authored a book, In Honor of Our Grandmothers, and co-founded the Gesher Holocaust project.
Working in watercolour, acrylic, and oil, her murals hang in synagogues and hospitals. Commissions and donations include Vancouver General Hospital, Children’s Hospital, Canadian Cancer Foundation, and the AIDS Memorial Project. Her paintings have benefited the Western Canada Wilderness Committee, Trans Canada Trail, Canadian Red Cross, and Raincoast Conservation Foundation and have helped to raise invaluable funds. More importantly, they have an emotional impact that can create real change.
