Linda was born the fourth of eight children and spent her childhood in Mullica Hill, NJ. When she was 15 years, her parents enrolled her in private art classes with a local oil painter artist. This teacher saw her unique talent and invited her to view the Andrew Wyeth exhibit at the Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia, PA. This event made a strong impression and her love for the arts deepened. Later as a married woman and mother of three, she studied with accomplished artists, such as Narcissa Weatherbee of Woodbury, NJ, portrait artist Floyd Torbert and watercolorist Ranolph Bye of Bucks County, PA. She also attended art classes at the Bucks County Community College and the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. There she gained valuable lessons in composition and color theory.
Linda has served as President and Vice President of the New Hope Art League in New Hope, PA (which is home of the New Hope School of Impressionism). Recently, she has served as President and Secretary of Waterway Art Association, Calabash, NC.
Although oil portraits have always held a special interest, she has recently found a passion for painting Carolina coastal scenes in watercolors and acrylic. She has received numerous awards throughout Brunswick County, NC. She is a member of Waterway Art Association, Brunswick Art Council, the Art Association of Southport, NC. Recent group exhibitions include Sunset Vision of NC, WWA in Calabash, NC and Franklin Square Art Gallery, Southport, NC. Her works are currently on display at Sunset River Gallery, Calabash, NC.
