Several of the artists we are showing in our next pop-up exhibition at Creake Abbey have turned their attention to a named point of reference, like a stretch of water or geographical location. LINDA JAMIESON responds to landscape with an emotional intensity that encapsulates its features, headlands and bays, fences and tracks. Her landscapes are often from a bird’s eye view. Jamieson finds forms within the rise and fall of the land, using overlapping jewel colours to describe a meadow or stream, as if laid out on a quilt.
Linda Jamieson was born and spent her childhood in Norfolk . She was trained at St. Martins school of Art, and studied further at Heatherlys and with Francis Pratt in France and Norfolk. She worked for many years in the field of textile design in London, France and Italy, and also as a consultant for interior design. She now divides her time between her studios in Norfolk and London and has also exhibited in both places.
