Referencing 18th century picturesque grottoes, Yorkshire based Linda Fenwick’s work springs from an early obsession. She made shell curios as a child, and the scale grew as she did. With each commission painstakingly done by hand, she’s looking to ‘go commercial’, though how she’ll manage the workload – short of turning into an octopus – is anyone’s guess.
