Hello and thank you for visiting my website.
I'm Linda Golding, a self taught painter who likes to learn and do things her own way without influence from anyone else's art. I paint from experience and observation of the world around me, interpreting what I see into a somewhat distorted image of the real thing, choosing to omit or add detail along the way as the mood takes me.
I'm based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, home to wonderful arty places such as the Hepworth Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture Park.
Many years ago I recognised a need to produce contemporary art for contemporary homes. I had some ideas based on photos taken during a visit to Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast and returned home to put those ideas into practise, with no idea how or where to begin or how it would evolve.
Following countless hours experimenting with line, colour and materials I developed a few pieces in my quirky/ bendy and often said instantly recognisible style which was introduced to Whitby Galleries way back in 2010. At the time it was unique and very different to anything else on sale and has sold there successfully ever since.
Over the years I've worked hard to improve and perfect my style, and have experimented with different subjects based on places I have been and ideas that come to mind from my many experiences of life.
And so it continues, a hobby turned profession which gives pleasure to many including myself.
My studio is in central Wakefield at Westgate Studios where you're more than welcome to visit, just give me a call or send me an e mail to arrange a time. Meanwhile I hope you enjoy browsing the galleries on my website.
Thanks for your interest.
