Biography


  
The love of drawing and painting began in kindergarten; but it was not until decades later in 2004 when she began creating watercolor paintings.  After a personally difficult time in her life, she needed something to pull her out of the sadness she was feeling.  That's when she found a watercolor class titled "Free Spirit Watercolor".  She felt if ANYONE'S spirit needed freed; it was hers!  Linda is a self-taught artist who mostly enjoys painting landscapes—and is known as a painter of water.  She gives all credit to God who has blessed her in many ways to draw and paint her impressions of the scenes that only He has perfected.
