Linda Cannon is a professional stained glass artist and Icon Accredited Conservator. She has been working with stained for almost forty years. She lives and works in Scotland where she has worked all over the country, travelling to remote Scottish Islands, villages and locations, often working onsite as well as in the studio.

She studied Stained Glass, fine art & design at Glasgow School of Art, was the stained glass conservator in the Burrell Collection for eight years, and has worked freelance since 1992.

Half of Linda’s work is new design work for private clients, and half is historically important conservation for Historic Scotland, Churches, and Listed buildings. She specialises in tricky techniques, bespoke problem solving, precision and beautifully designed windows.
