Linda Landers grew up in Hertfordshire and studied at Central St Martins School of Art in London where she gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Painting. Prior to this she completed a one year design induction and one year Art Foundation course at Watford College of Art.
Subsequently, Linda entered into an extensive study of printmaking techniques and also completed a six-month printmaking residency, after which she began to focus on wood engraving and producing limited edition books whilst also showing her paintings, linocuts and etchings. She received a prize for excellence in Printmaking at the Mall Galleries in London, where she has given workshops. Her books are held in public and private collections. Her painting and printmaking has been exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition on many occasions, most recently 2020-21.
In 2017 Linda obtained an MA from Kingston University.
She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers Bankside Gallery.
Her current work incorporates autobiographical elements and is inspired by the metaphysical work of Georgio de Chirico and the romanticism of Marc Chagall.

Linda presenting one of her etchings to her old school, in Hertfordshire. 'When I was there I painted on sheets of paper larger than A1. The main hall was decked with large photos of the NASA astronauts that stretched from floor to ceiling. These are memories that always stay with you.'
Linda was very fortunate to have met art historian and Carmelite Nun, Sister Wendy Beckett, on several occasions. Linda recalls her as a clear-thinking, spiritual person who had a deep understanding of the heart of things and the joy in life.
