Linda was born and raised in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. She relocated to Southlake, Texas with her husband and family in the early 90’s when she began her career in art.
As a primarily self-taught artist, Linda has attended numerous classes and workshops from local and nationally known artists including Art Locke, Bennie Johnson Wood, Judi Betts, Judi Coffee, Carolyn Riegleman, and Doug Walton. She is a member of The Trinity Arts Guild, Artists of Texas, Daily Painters of Texsas, and the Society of Watercolor Artists. Her works have been exhibited in shows in the Trinity Arts Guild Gallery, the member show of the Society of Watercolor artist, Artists of Texas yearly show at the Dutch Art Gallery, and Art251. Linda also participates in the Guild’s traveling art show at local businesses and libraries in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. She has also shown her works in Angelica, New York and in the Bein Gallery in Roanoke, Texas. Her paintings are in private collections across the United States.
Although she likes to experiment with various media and techniques, transparent water color is Linda’s primary media. Her love of the earth and Mother Nature are reflected in her works, even abstracts turn into trees and countryside. Even though Linda is predominately a landscape artist she enjoys painting different subject matter using a wide variety of materials. Recently she has been experimenting with equine subjects. Linda’s belief that we as people are forever changing and growing is carried through her art with different media and subjects. To stay the same would be… to be left behind.
Linda reserves a portion of her day to share her love of art with children and adults at The Bein Gallery Studio in Southlake. Students experiment with pencil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, paper mache, clay, carving, and just about any form of art we can touch, feel and work with.
Linda’s work can be viewed at Trinity Arts Guild Gallery, The Bein Gallery Southlake Studio, The Dutch Art Gallery Fall show.
