Featured Artists 2021 – Linda Frankin

Linda Frankin – ‘Where there’s magic’
Linda Franklin is an abstract painter using oils and acrylics. Her works are highly choreographed lyrical abstractions, where she creates, loosely formed landscapes, seascapes and flowers. She is a master colourist whose process is intuitive and experimental, underpinned by strong composition and structure.
As she explains: “Whatever the beginnings, ultimately, without recourse to realism, I want to create a space where it is possible to stop and dream a while; where the paint is free to use its own unique yet universal language to open the door to that special place, somewhere on the edge – between reality and fantasy.
Franklin graduated from the Winchester School of Art. An international hit at art fairs in London, Asia, and America, her work can be found in a range of public and private collections. She has been selected for exhibitions by both the Discerning Eye and the Society of Women’s Artists and is included in the ‘Who’s who in Art’. She was runner up for the Sir John Stibbon’s Award, nominated by Emma Stibbons RA.
