Linda Devo

I am a versatile artist and maker, producing works that seek to question and interrogate self and society.

The intersectionality of being an African, Caribbean, European, neurodivergent, disabled 50-year-old woman informs my cultural contexts.

I have a deep interest in the spiritual and bodily, multi-sensory beings that we are. It is how we tick and how design is used as a tool to meet the needs and wants of our species that drives me to make.

My multidisciplinary practice embraces technology and traditional making skills, along with a sensitive, ethical use of materials. I seek to design objects that create

connections, encouraging repeated use as an antidote to throwaway design.

The objects I create often have an element of playfulness, are anthropomorphic and encourage interaction and delight between multiple senses.
