She has exhibited her work in a number of exhibitions including The British Glass Biennale 2015 and 2017, London Glassblowing Gallery, The Waterfront Gallery, Swansea and, in 2019, Glasrijk Festival of Glass in The Netherlands. Last year, in celebration of International Women’s Day, Linda curated Never Done, an exhibition of work by women artists from Japan, New York, Shetland and UK. In 2016 Linda was invited to the American Glass Guild Conference in Florida to present her work and run a workshop.
Linda has undertaken a number of site specific commissions including one for The Contemporary Art Society of Wales at Narberth Museum, and for Strata Florida Abbey in Ceredigion. In 2017 she formed an architectural glass partnership with Rachel Phillips and together they have completed commissions including making windows for Conwy and Beaumaris Castles in North Wales, and, in 2019 an installation of mirrored glass for The Church of St Michael and All Saints, Blewbury, Oxfordshire. Linda and Rachel are currently designing windows for Caernarfon Castle, North Wales.
