Biography


A fifth-generation Texan, Linda began drawing at a very early age while observing her father at his drawing board - a draftsman, calligrapher and design engineer. For 25 years, she was a designer, illustrator, art director and managing editor, in the advertising, fashion, health education and publishing industries. Eventually Linda left commercial art to devote herself to her true loves, painting and drawing. She studied with nationally known artists: Frederic Mizen at Baylor University, Samuel Shelton at MCC, and workshops with Michael Albrechtson, Tony Eubanks, George Hallmark, Bruce Greene, Martin Grelle, Kay Polk, Jerral Derryberry, Andy Thomas, Nancy Boren, V. Vaughan and Kathy Tate. With exposure to each of these gifted teachers, Linda's art has evolved into her own unique style of expression.
Her art has been juried into the prestigious Bosque Art Classic and other local and regional art shows, as well as galleries; she has won Best of Show, First and Second Place in several exhibits and competitions. Linda is a member of the Portrait Society of America, the Cecilia Beaux Forum, and Professional Artists of Central Texas. She lives in Waco, Texas, near her childhood home where she watched her father at his work.
 
Artist's Statement
My favorite thing to paint is people: to tell their story, revealing their emotions and personality. In my artwork, I express my inner impressions of the person, the objects, or the scene. Before the painting or drawing is finished, I find myself in a closer, almost spiritual, relationship with that person or place. That association to some degree forever changes me. It is my hope that the viewer of my art will relate to and be affected by those impressions.
