Linda is Summer Clan at Santa Clara Pueblo. She graduated from Espanola High School and also attended the Institute of American Indian Arts. Linda worked as a Respiratory Therapy Technician before she became a full-time potter. Her native Tewa name, given by her grandmother Adelaide (Lala) Sisneros, is "Jo Povi" which means "cactus flower." Both her grandmother and her mother, Marie Sisneros Askan were instrumental in teaching Linda how to create pottery in the traditional way. Although both women have since passed away, they are listed as Active Potters in the book Santa Clara Pottery Today, which published in 1975. Linda's father Andy Askan passed away in the summer of 1999. Signed by the artist.
