Linda Haggerty developed a passion for art early on. After completing high school, she moved to Santa Barbara to attend college, where she fell in love with ceramics.
Linda worked in the production department at Santa Barbara Ceramic Design, where she met her husband James.
After graduating with a B.A. in Studio Art with an emphasis in ceramics from U.C.S.B., Linda started her own custom hand-painted tile business, Santa Barbara Tileworks.
Several years later she formed a new business, Haggerty Ceramics, with her husband, James, marrying his forms and glazed with her masterful surface decorations.
Her work has been displayed in galleries across the US, and is in many prominent private collections.
