25 years ago Linda Stein moved from Windsor to Cornwall for a better life, she
started selling her slate paintings at various shows in The West Country,
taking commissions to paint pets, boats, house and places. Many still hanging in public and private houses.

Linda also worked on Props at the Theatre Royal Plymouth working on
pantomimes, musicals and making a variety of props including a narrating
owl for Ted Rogers and witches hands for Honor Blackman.


Linda has also Painted murals on the outside of pubs and taught craft and prop making at evening classes.

Taking advice from friends Linda took time out to take a 3 year diploma in
art and design in Plymouth Art College

After this she reached the final of Woman Magazine designer of the year

the "Ariel Needles National Knitware Competition" held at the South Kensington Roof Gardens, which provided interest from designer shops in

Linda enjoys a design challenge.

She loves all aspects of craft and has also engraved glass, designed
crochet and knitwear,
Throughout the years Linda has sketched and painted scenes from
the West Country. and is now able to concentrate on what she came down
here for.

Linda uses reclaimed slates to paint local scenes. She loves the
texture and shapes of slate which compliment her views and help create
the atmosphere of the beaches, moorland, landscapes and coves of the
West Country.


She also designs and makes unique "slate and silver brooches" a tactile
visually attractive accessory to any outfit, no two the same.
