Linda Ingham’s process-led practice leads her to consider how best to create works which depict her interests in landscape and place.

Her work has come to observe human- and non-human relationships; nature in conservation; human ‘placings’ of trees within a built environment; the perceived ‘value’ of this in a world of climate emergency and war.

Botanical beauty and the folk histories of plants we often overlook on a daily basis was where this began back in 2010, moving through subsequent years to present a contemporary story with a backdrop of place, an acknowledgement of time, present and past.

Mostly working in series, arrived at through extended periods spent making studies to arrive at her intention, Ingham hopes to find ways to combine her subject-matter with something of the ‘other’.

Linda Ingham lives in coastal Lincolnshire and has her studio at The Ropewalk in North Lincolnshire, achieving her MA Fine Art from Lincoln University in 2007. Exhibiting nationally and internationally her works are represented in collections in Britain, China and the USA. She is a member of the curated group, Contemporary British Painting, and still curates shows on occasion.
