Artist Biography, Linda Jackson

My work is based around the expressive use of colour and mark making. I use a wide variety of painting and collage materials. Most pieces incorporate some form of printmaking as a starting point, either images put onto photosensitive silkscreen stencils or monotypes painted directly onto aluminium sheets and then put through a press. I then cut, collage, paint, scratch and draw to build up layers to create the feeling that I want.

I graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1993 and after many years in Edinburgh now live and work in Cellardyke. I have been the Artist in Residence at St Leonards School, St Andrews since 2008.
