Linda Lieberman is a Scottish born artist. Her work draws inspiration from the changing ecology and environment around her. Motivated by her feelings about our planet, the ocean and its diverse species, her artworks depict the world from a perspective that embraces all creation, rather than just the human point-of-view. Linda re-imagines the Ocean, Seed, Egg, Fish and Mankind within her artworks. By working with mixed media, sculpture, photography and video, her works create a unique and compelling aesthetic; this multi-disciplinary approach allows full freedom for creation.
