I have been involved in textile art, applique, patchwork and quilting for many years. For the last ten years I have been painting and clay modelling taking my inspiration from the animals and flowers from country side around me.
I am lucky to have my studio in my garden where I am able to paint and clay model.
I belong to several local groups including art , quilting, clay modelling and gardening.
Coming from a painting background having exhibited portraits and paintings in London Salisbury and Germany, a few years ago I became very interested in sculpture.
Not finding any local venues where I could learn and practice I started up the Sculpture Barn near Sturminster Newton, where I and others can practice and continue to improve and benefit from regularly working together and from visiting tutors from a wide range of sculptural disciplines.
Although I still enjoy drawing and painting, ...
A lasting influence, from the age of about five, was the bright colour of Disney and Warner Brothers' animations, and I aspired from an early age to be a cartoonist. In the early 1950s, I was made aware of 'fine art' and all the 'isms', beginning with Impressionism, through reading R. H.

Linda Carroll was born in Leeds. She has a long association with Dorset since attending college in Weymouth when training to teach. She has a B.A. in the Arts and an M. A. in Psychology.
Linda was a founder member of the College of Storytellers in the 1980s, introducing the art of storytelling into a western culture where it was not as common as in the east.
Her work is an imaginative response to natural subjects and local village life.
Linda works mainly in oils on canvas, board and paper.
Having had to leave Kingston Art College after only one year was a bitter pill, but that was over ** years ago and since then life has taken over so it was not until retirement reared its head and I moved to the West Country that I was able to follow my passion again. Although I was not actively creative during those years (if you don't count producing a family), Art has been very much a part of my life. As with the proverbial "you never forget how to ride a bike" I decided that rather than wobb...
I am 77 and a graduate of Bath Academy of Art (Corsham site), BA hons 1978. I have been teaching art to adults in Wiltshire for the past 39 years, I have exhibited with Bath Society of Artists for most of that time as well as other local exhibitions both here in UK and in France.

I enjoy working in watercolour and other media.
Drawing inspiration from the natural environment of Britain, and especially Dorset with its Purbeck stone cottages and wonderful old churches and farm buildings, I use a bold and direct approach of colour and tone. My watercolours usually include some line-work in ink, resulting in a fascinating mix of traditional and contemporary styles.
With a passion for all things artistic, I cannot remember a time when drawing and painting were not import...
