Linda Norris (b.1960) has been a painter for 35 years and began working in glass 12 years ago. She works with various media and is constantly trying to find the best way to express her ideas.
Her inspiration remains firmly rooted in landscape and her work is driven by a desire to move away from pictorial representation to make work fuelled by ideas that underpin and investigate a sense of place.
She has won a number of awards for her work in glass, including winning the international Warm Glass Prize in 2012 and the Adrian Henri poetry in Art Prize in 2013. She has exhibited at the British Glass Biennale in 2015 and 2017. Shw is currently developing new work in glass in response to the corona virus crisis.
As Studio Melyn she works with Rachel Phillips. Since 2012 they have completed architectural glass commissions for Cadw at Conwy and Beaumaris Castles in North Wales, in a local sheltered housing scheme in Pembrokeshire, Skokholm Island and in 2019 they completed Resound, an installation in glass and mirror for Blewbury Church in Oxfordshire. They are currently working on a design for a stained glass window for Caernarfon Castle in North Wales.
