Dr. Linda Pollard is a committed visual artist who holds a Doctorate in Creative Industries and whose practice is based on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

Linda is a contemporary expressionist and her work is distinguishable for its energetic quality, her exploration of the materiality of paint through texture and colour and she takes cue from the environment and nature for her inspiration but prefers to paint from memory and imagination of places and natural environments real or imagined.
