About Linda Preece

Linda`s focus has been on the casting of resin-bronzes from clay, a medium she loves and which allows her to capture the subtle nuances of expression and movement peculiar to her subjects.

Working on Shirley Bassey Portrait

Biography / CV of Linda Preece

I taught woodcarving to adults for 12 years and interspersed with family life, somehow squeezed in heraldic carving and painting, restoration work in country mansions and Norwich Cathedral. I carved fairground horses and rocking-horses. I also carved two village signs, restored others as well as taking on various smaller commissions.

I am also a qualified Shiatsu practitioner. Shiatsu is a combination of Japanese massage and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Therefore I am very conscious of ambience and used to handling bodies and giving treatments. Touch is extremely important and a piece must feel right if it is to look right. In my professional practice, I always concluded each session with relaxing work on the head, so that now when I am creating a portrait sculpture, the contours feel familiar and seem to come alive under my hands as I try to get a sense of the personality within.

Now retired, I am enjoying my renaissance, particularly my love of modelling in clay. I am able to combine intuition and love of physical form as I try to capture the elusive qualities that establish an individual?s personality, the sinuous lines of an animal or the shape and form of abstract art.

If I can add a little joy to somebody?s life with any one of my creations, I shall be extremely happy. Many thanks for looking at my site and I wish you health and happiness.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
