Welcome to Cuckoo Farm Studios.
Cuckoo Farm Studios formed in 1992, in converted farm buildings on the northern outskirts of the historical town of Colchester. We support emerging talent through our Graduate Award Scheme, and we continue to develop artists through professional development.

Originally from N. Ireland but now based in Colchester,
Linda Arkley is a practising Fine Art Sculptor, specialising in Light
Installation and Photography.
Linda’s practice explores the boundaries between art,
science and nature by considering scientific enquiries, not as precise truths
but in terms of questions and possibilities. Her pseudo natural worlds, made
mostly from discarded plastics collected from the environment and low tech
lighting, captures the pioneering spirit of C19th culture when nature
represented a physical sanctuary for romantic expression and imaginative
Linda approaches her practice in a hands-on manner by responding
to site, materials and light source with acute sensitivity. The low tech
equipment and amateur processes are an integral part of her work. Through light
and plastic manipulation and acute sensitivity to medium, her work encompasses
formal beauty and mental reflection.
Since 2007, Linda has worked on various community and art
education projects. She has taken on commissions for schools, museums and
galleries, and has exhibited her work nationally.
