Linda Nevill is a painter/printmaker who likes to make sketches and create paint studies out in the landscape. She finds it exciting to listen to the sounds of rustling grasses, larks singing or waves crashing. The excitement generated feeds into her artwork increasing the energy of the marks and intensifying the mood created later in her studio. Linda works in a range of media including oils, soft pastels, etching and mixed media. Tools include brushes, bamboo sticks, pens and dried plants to create a combination of precision and random marks.
Linda studied for an MA Hons in the History of Art at Edinburgh University and a BA Hons in Fine Art Printmaking at the University of Wolverhampton. In her pursuit of a non-toxic approach to printmaking she has taken courses in New Mexico, New York and Dumfries. She has lived and taught in Belgium, Sweden and the UK, and she has been creating art happily in her studio in the West Midlands for many years. She exhibits widely and has had etchings accepted into the Victoria and Albert Museum’s permanent collection and the National Print Archive.
