Linda Edwards has worked as a professional illustrator and artist in Shrewsbury for about 25 years.
Currently she is working on paintings in watercolour, oils and acrylics in intense colours and is developing a passion for gold! Her work is often inspired by poetry and has a lyrical, naive, decorative style. She likes to sometimes incorporate text. Illuminated manuscripts, Persian miniatures and folk art are influential in her work.
Linda’s illustrative work has appeared in many different guises over the years. With no formal art training, but developing as a self-taught artist she has worked on many varied collections. These include illustrating children’s books and licensing artwork for products such as greetings cards, ceramics, enamelware and melamine.
Sunny Side Art was created a few years ago with her partner Nigel. They create artprints, cards and gifts based on Linda’s illustrations to celebrate our fantastic county. Finding high quality British manufacturers and paying lots of attention to both detail and finishing is their trademark.
Open studios is a chance to meet up with all sorts of people, catch up with old friends and make new ones. It’s great fun especially when people go away inspired by their visit to make some art of their own.
