Linda is a city girl turned country and enjoys life as a farmer’s wife. She says “It has been a joy to produce my art after raising a family and teaching school. I have been married to Bob for 56 years, have three children, nine grand-children, and one great-grand daughter.”
Bob and Linda used to raise Holstein heifers but in the last 30 years have turned their attention to growing many varieties of oranges and plums. Many of Linda’s paintings have been painted plein air or from photographs. Extensive hikes and backpacking out of Mineral King and other parts of California have given source to many of the palette knife oil paintings produced, as well as the numerous places of travel. There is hardly a medium Linda hasn’t tried so you will see a variety of mediums and subjects mostly realistic.
Linda is currently a member of the Main Gallery Group, the Porterville Art Association, and the Tulare Palette Club as well as Arts Visalia and Arts Consortium. She will be one of the artists showing her studio in the So. Valley Artist Studio Tour in March 28-29. Linda shows at various events in Tulare County and has been the featured artist for the Tulare Historical Museum Art Gallery. More consistently, Linda has been showing for many years at the Porterville Art Studio where she has met many inspiring and encouraging artists.
