About Linda Newcombe

I am a visual artist based in Berkshire, UK. My work straddles the areas of printmaking, animation and illustration.
​I create child-like work using symbolic and folkloric figures, objects and settings that invite interpretation and construction of narrative. I create emotionally charged encounters reminiscent of a fantasy childhood and bygone era..
