Meet the Artist : Linda Alvis ~ Meet Linda who will be exhibiting at Venue 7, 28 Wellington Park, Clifton, BS8 2UT ~ "Living and working in Bristol is a privilege and I am continually inspired by this vibrant City. Over the years I have travelled the world extensively. Countries I visit, their peoples and landscapes, provide me with rich materials. As well as pastel landscapes and portraiture, my work includes photography, poetry and writing. My illustrated poetry book ‘Dawn Rising and Other Poems’, published this year, will be available on the Trail. Also my children’s book series, ‘Worrall and Robin’, for approximate ages 4 – 8years. I am currently working on a book of life and travels as an artist." #WBAT
