Linda Cannon Associate
Since studying stained glass at Glasgow School of Art (1979-83), I have been working full time in the design, restoration, conservation, and research of stained glass. I work mostly in Scotland with my work partner, Rab MacInnes ACR as ‘Cannon-MacInnes’. I have worked and studied stained glass in America, and often return to visit colleagues and friends. I keep up to date by attending BSMGP and CVMA conferences throughout Europe. For 8 years I worked as the stained glass conservator in the Burrell Collection, where I wrote a book about the medieval stained glass.
Since 1989 I have served on various stained glass conservation committees connected with BSMGP, ICON and the CVMA. I am an accredited conservator with ICON.
I am now focusing, once again, on new work, particularly new ways of drawing, etching and painting on glass. I like a challenge. I like problem solving. I like technical difficulty.
