Worked with the legendary Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate on the children’s programmes The Clangers & Bagpuss. Her work also included Charlie and the Witch and Pogle’s Wood (check YouTube for clips!).

Linda writes for the art press regularly.

We have also developed occasional Art Retreat type courses now with Linda as well, which seek to reinforce the links between the visual and elements like feelings, thinking and relating to life.
