Current Visiting Artist

Linda HughesLinda Hughes, Australia

Linda Hughes was born and raised in England, but in 1983 immigrated to Australia, where she continues her education in jewelry design at RMIT University in Melbourne. Her PhD research into the historical use of the stripe within Western art springs from her jewellery practice and, in turn, feeds back into her design lexicon. Linda is represented in public and private collections in Australia, Paris, New York and Holland, and has been the recipient of several Australian awards.
