Primarily self‐taught, Linda has been a professional artist for over 20 years. As a painter her interest lies in wilderness landscapes, wildlife, and the heritage of the area in which she resides, the Algonquin Region. Linda paints both Plein‐Air in oils in all seasons and in the studio large vibrant iconic canvases in acrylic. Linda has developed a body of work inspired by the natural world, exploring flora and fauna of this vast diverse wilderness. Much of the painting process involves hands-on adventure in wilderness destinations, often by boat and canoe and camping with on‐site painting sketches and photography to be used as reference material for larger studio paintings.
Linda is a juried member of Artists for Conservation, Canada, an international wildlife and landscape artists group as advocates for the natural world.
Linda also belongs to a trio of dynamic, passionate Canadian women painters formed with Joyce Burkholder and Kathy Haycock, who share a unique vision of wilderness landscapes. Their hardcover book, Wild Women Painters of the Wilderness, was published in 2014.
Linda’s award‐winning paintings have been featured in magazines, film, and television, and are included in private collections around the world. She is represented by numerous galleries and participates in select exhibits throughout the year.
