'C' & 'D'
As a result of living in various cities across Canada, Linda had the privilege of being exposed to diverse urban populations and environments. This fostered her inquisitiveness to explore the cultural aspects of these places and their inhabitants.
An early career in medical imaging taught her the skill of using shades of grey and of making sense of obscured images. But color has always been part of her DNA. While working for Kodak in Marketing and Applications, she developed an even greater appreciation and fascination with using color to communicate and influence perceptions.
Her time at Kodak also triggered an interest in the demise of industry and the impact on people, economies and cultures. Now as a practicing Psychotherapist, she is influenced by issues of loss of identity, dealing with change, and finding meaning and purpose.
Linda has been involved in the mentorship program at Dundas Valley School of Art for the last five years and prior to this, she studied at the Ottawa School of Art, Haliburton School of the Arts, Algonquin and St Lawrence Colleges, and attended numerous art therapy courses.
