Linda Charles

Linda Charles was born in 1969 in the South East of England and attended Herriot Watt University in Scotland where she studied textiles and fashion.
She began her career designing abstract work incorporating heavily textured surfaces, using materials such as gold and silver leaf, and became very successful in the interior design boom of the early 2000s.

However she has always been keen to develop her work by fusing certain qualities of my abstract work into real life imagery, and her love for fashion and animals have recently combined to produce brand new collections using her traditional combinations of textures and various media, now including elements of digital collage, with loveable animals against unique backdrops as well as magnificent pieces of individual fashionable couture models featuring stunning real textures such as feathers, jewels and fabrics, along with her striking images based on book covers and record sleeves.
