Linda moved to Albuquerque in 1997 after having moved throughout the United States, for careers with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Trained in Civil Engineering/Hydrosystems, Linda received her BSCE from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and her MSCE from Virginia Polytechnic and State University.

Before discovering fused glass, Linda made stained glass windows for her friends and family for about 20 years. Her stained-glass windows are in peoples’ houses in Massachusetts, Nevada, Illinois, South Carolina, and New Mexico. But when Linda took a fused glass jewelry class about 20 years ago, she was hooked. Linda fell in love with how the properties of glass could be changed by firing it in a kiln. Besides the bright, happy colors that can be achieved through fused glass techniques, glass that has been fired in a kiln takes on new shapes and properties that are almost always a surprise.

Inspired by Dale Chihuly, other glass artists, and glass classes offered over Zoom during the Pandemic (glass plates and sculptures), Linda has been trying new ways to look at and use glass. Most recently, Linda has won 2nd place for 3-dimensional art in the 25th annual Miniature Art Bardeen competition, and 3rd place in the 2023 NM State Fair Fine Arts Competition in the glass category. Linda is a member of the NM Glass Alliance and had the honor of having one of her pieces on display at the airport.

Linda is thrilled and honored to participate in the NM Cancer Center’s Gallery with a Cause. She is passionate about her glass, and the idea that her passion can help the patients at Cancer Center is fantastic. She hopes that her viewers experience joy from the bright happy colors and light from her artwork, just as she does.
