Linda Medwid I was born in Wales, UK and studied Classical Archaeology in this country. I earned my doctoral degree and taught Classical Studies at Siena College, NY for fourteen years. My husband and I discovered Cape Ann two years ago and now live in Gloucester. My love of Greek and Roman art and architecture led me to become interested in Roman mosaics. I largely create my mosaics in the Roman method using smalti or vitreous glass. I create both Roman and more modern motifs.
