Linda Abbott is a well-known glass artist whose skills, in addition to her design and stained glass construction abilities, include sandblasting, glass carving, forming and wire wrapping glass jewelry, glass fusing, traditional and non-traditional glass painting techniques and gold leafing. She has written six books and a video about glass art and is a contributing editor to the major magazines in her field. She is in great demand as a teacher and lecturer throughout the United States. She has created special effects for movies and is frequently used as a consultant to the glass industry in the development of new products, their feasibility and use.

Linda was recently awarded the Marquis Who's Who Lifetime Achievement Award.  It is given to less than 3% of the people who are listed in the Marquis Who's Who publications for "outstanding professional dedication and career longevity."
Ms. Abbott first studied under Russian Impressionist Ludmilla Morosowa before being granted a full art scholarship to the State University of New York. After receiving her degree, she continued her studies with some of the finest glass artists in the United States. Under their tutelage, she learned not only interior and exterior glass working techniques, but also the specific dynamics necessary for working on outdoor glass projects. One of her favorite commissions was the creation of a wall of glass for the Holocaust Learning Center located in Broward County, Florida. Her work can also be seen as part of the permanent collections of the Uroboros Glass Company of Portland, Oregon, one of the world's finest manufacturers of art glass, and Seamaster, Inc, producer of quality sports equipment.

Linda Abbott is included in the Marquis Who's Who in American Art, Who's Who in the South and Southwest, Who's Who in America, Who's Who of American Women and Who's Who in the World editions. She is currently working on a forty-five square foot circular skylight for a private residence.
