Linda was born in 1950 and grew up riding horses. Her artistic talents became evident at a very early age winning art competitions in school and after finishing school she continued drawing and painting and winning many local art competitions.
In 1980 she began sculpting professionally and has become well known for the subject matter she has chosen, cowboys, horses, cattle and cowdogs in typical ranch settings. She has participated in the Calgary Stampede Western Art Show since 1981 and has received numerous "Best of Show" and "Collectors choice" awards.
Linda and her husband ,Don owned and operated their own foundry, Canyon Art Casting in the Okanogan Valley for six years which helped her to understand all the phases of the bronze casting process. This in turn enabled her to collaborate with art casting foundries to get the desired effects on her sculptures, making them unique.
She was commissioned by The Calgary Stampede to do a life-size sculpture "ROUNDUP" that stands at the entrance to the Roundup Center at Stampede Park.
In 2007 she was commissioned to do a 6' x 8' bronze relief to commemorate the Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers who have died in the line of duty and was unveiled at the Sherwood Park, Alberta RCMP detachment.
