Linda Roast MA, studied Art and Design at St Martin's School of Art, London 1974 - 77 and subsequently at Norwich School of Art for an MA in Fine Art 2007 - 2009.
She worked successfully in design for many years whilst continuing her passion for Life Drawing and painting. Interested in the freedom and vitality of marks, her work is completed with passion and speed.
Linda's portraits are generally of relationships important to her life which includes her dog Edith. She is interested in the emotional attachments with our dogs and how to transfer these immense feelings onto canvas using light and it's use in the illusion of the three dimensional on a two dimensional plain. Speed still plays an important role in capturing visual vitality.
