Linda Charles

Linda Charles was born in 1969 in the South East of England. As long as I can remember I have always had a creative streak; drawing and designing from a very early age. 

She attended Herriot Watt University in Scotland where she studied textiles and fashion. This led her to an interest in abstract work in which she became more and more involved. 

Linda Charles began to design work incorporating heavy texture using materials such as gold and silver leaf. The use of colour at the time lent itself to the advent of the interior design boom of the early 2000s and her work began to sell in huge quantities worldwide.
Linda Charles has always been keen to develop her work by fusing certain qualities of my abstract work into real life imagery. 

She lives in a beautiful part of Hertfordshire surrounded by nature and rolling countryside and uses her surroundings for inspiration. Her proximity to the National Trust ancient Hatfield Forest, once a favourite hunting location for Henry VIII, provides excellent reference for raw and unspoilt imagery, which is always her starting point of any piece. 

After attending Herriot Watt University in Scotland where she studied textiles and fashion launched a full time career as a professional artist in the late 90's.

This background in textile and fashion has been evident through out her work which is heavily textured and makes use of many forms of mixed media including gold and silver leaf.

With a career spanning over 25 years Linda continues to use her vast experience and enjoys exploring new techniques and mediums to produce striking collections.
