“Linda was born in Merredin in 1955 and moved to Esperance during her early primary years. She completed studies in Visual Arts and Art Education at Edith Cowan University.

Linda’s father had to leave Lithuania during the years of the Soviet expansion and met his wife-to-be in  the turmoil of the German tragedy. Linda is representative of many first generation Australians whose parents escaped Europe after WW11 , finding themselves growing up in an environment without relatives and icons that linked their identity to a particular place and time.

Linda’s paintings are psychological explorations of the coming to terms with the narratives of parents isolated from their European heritage. She presents a universal issue of identity and home coming through an assemblage of family narratives.” Dr Geof Lummis - excerpt documentary Linda Skrolys Artist from the Southwest
