Linda Bickerton-Ross is a street, fine art and documentary photographer. She studied photography at Focal Point, Vancouver Photo Workshops in Vancouver and Kwantlen Polytechnic University. Bickerton-Ross has shown her work in juried shows at the Surrey Art Gallery, Richmond Art Gallery, Turnbull Gallery, and through the Art on Display Program sponsored by the White Rock Community Arts Council of White Rock.
In August 2017, her Walkers of White Rock project was included in a curated show (Sagas, Narratives, and Selfies) at the Pop-Up Gallery sponsored by the City of White Rock and Semiahmoo Arts. She has won local awards for her photography, including a photograph being selected for the Jurors’ Prize Honorable Mention at the Surrey Art Gallery in 2019. In 2020-21, Bickerton-Ross was chosen to be part of the Canada Council and City of Surrey sponsored Digital Doorways Initiative. Focusing on individual artists’ projects, the program created collaborative partnerships between artists and digital experts that would benefit both their work and their digital knowledge.

Several years ago, I began immersing myself in photography courses and the creation of images. This interest developed into a passion for experimenting with the artistic side of photography, while at the same time learning the technical skills of this art form. My work, I believe, reflects an affinity for the creative process, an eye for beauty, whether created or found, and ongoing experimentation toward a photographic vision. As I encounter new experiences or visual stimulus, my curiosity often leads me toward project or series work based on a particular subject. My art continues to evolve, with a current focus on street, fine art and abstract photography.
