Linda has enjoyed art and hand crafts her whole life and started painting with acrylics in 2017 as a retirement hobby. She finds her inspiration in nature, painting landscapes of our beautiful west coast scenery. Her love for birds also finds a brush in her hand, capturing these delicate creatures on canvas, with subjects from all over the world.
Linda values her many artistic connections, from informal painting groups to arts societies and galleries. With the COVID pandemic has come the social isolation, necessitated by public health restrictions. In turning to the internet for connection to the art world, Linda has discovered an interest in abstract painting and mixed media. She looks forward to continuing to explore abstract style in her painting.
Linda lives in Colwood, B.C., a suburb of Victoria where she enjoys painting “en plein air” much of the year. Her other hobbies include gardening, reading, the occasional golf game, and beach combing for unique “flotsam and jetsam” that she enjoys using in her crafts.
