My name is Linda Kiddell and I have had a passion for working in art, craft and textiles since I was a teenager. I love to paint, draw, sew and design combining these and other mediums to create one piece of work. Since graduating as a mature student at Rochester UCA with a BA in Art & Design I now describe myself as a social and relational artist. My creativity is fed by my surroundings and the people I work with. My passion and inspiration derives from teaching, creating and working in a social environment where people of any age come together to participate in a shared activity and this is where I am at my strongest emotionally and most happy as an artist.
