Born in Christchurch, Linelle began classes with a local artist from a young age and continued in art through high school. From school Linelle left New Zealand for England where she attended Medway college of Design. On her return to New Zealand, Linelle had a private exhibition in Auckland. At home with a young family she took up ticket writing and also worked as a finish artist. When she had the time she also ran children’s art classes. With a grown up family Linelle now works from home as a full-time artist.
