Biography


LINDA VOLRATH is a classically trained artist working in the traditional medium of oil in a painterly representational style. The dominant subjects of her paintings are equestrian scenes, animals, landscapes, people and still lifes. To capture the effects of light and atmosphere Linda paints landscapes en plein air and works under natural lighting in her studio for still lifes. For equine paintings she works from her own sketches, plein air studies and reference material inspired by the world class equestrian sports of Virginia's Blue Ridge and Piedmont area. Painting is a passion in the artist's life and serves as her celebration of the gift of sight and creativity.
 
Linda worked as an Art Director and Illustrator for 15 years, during which time she studied with nationally renowned artist's who were carefully selected for their oil painting techniques and styles. She has had gallery representation since 1994 and has had two solo exhibitions. Her work is included in many private collections, and in the permanent collections of the National Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC and the Oatlands Historic Plantation, Leesburg, VA. She is a signature member of the American Academy of Equine Art and has served as the judge for their national exhibitions.
Linda is a native of northern Virginia. She and her husband, also an artist, met while painting in New Mexico, and now reside in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
