Linda Mc Donald studied at Glasgow School of Art. She began with an interest in drawing, painting and illustration, but also had the opportunity to explore Jewellery as part of her first year. Making jewellery allowed her to explore telling stories through a wearable piece of art, hence the journey then changed to studying Jewellery and Silversmithing, graduating in 1996.
'I was always creative as I grew up, with inspiration all around me in the form of textiles. My father worked for a thread company and my mother was and still is a keen seamstress with a beautiful embroidery hobby. Although my creativity started with fabrics and wool, this quickly turned to sketching our stunning surroundings in Cardross, Scotland where I grew up.'
