Buttrams Windmill

As Linda L. Chapman, she married at Havering, Essex in 1974, Kevin R M Kingford, a chartered accountant, and paints under the name of Linda Kingsford. Linda is a Suffolk based artist who has lived most of her life in East Anglia and whilst she studied Fine Art as part of her education it was not until her family had grown up that she commenced painting on an active professional basis. Over the past few years Linda has developed from her home studio, an individual style of painting which in the form of original artwork and limited edition prints has been admired by both art critics and gallery owners alike. A landscape artist whose seaside compositions illustrate the features of local landmarks and the exhilarating coastline of the region, in particular the Suffolk Heritage Coast and her distinctive poster style takes its source from the travel and transport posters of the mid-twentieth century. Based upon this popular style she applies a fresh approach by creating modern images which are not only in harmony with today but also retain a sense of nostalgia. She paints primarily on canvas in the acrylic medium which provides a vivid and intense range of colours and has exhibited from 7 Heathfield, Martlesham, Ipswich with Reunion Gallery, Gainsborough Road, Felixstowe and The Taplin Gallery at Woodbridge and has enjoyed a presence in most of the prestigious art galleries throughout Suffolk.
