Linda Cresswell

Linda has had a camera in her hands since childhood, the natural world never ceasing to awe and inspire her. Photography is a doorway for her into a world of beauty, expression, emotion, texture, and time. While Linda works as an oncology nurse for a living, photography has been a passionate outlet for much of her life. It is a way for her to capture a moment in time, to express emotion through a lens.

Linda began to seriously study the art of photography in 2008 with the purchase of her first SLR film camera. In 2013, she joined the Oshawa Camera club as a way to be challenged and grow as a photographer. Photography has become a medium through which she can share and nurture her passions, a way for her to create visual poetry.

As the winner of the 2006 Canadian Wildlife grand prize and the Oshawa Camera Club "Rising Star Award", it is her privilege to judge the 2018 Warkworth Lilac Festival Photo Show.
