Linda is an internationally recognized fine arts professional. She was raised in Delaware County, Pennsylvania
but has lived in many states.The first solo exhibit of her paintings opened on her 21st birthday at the Widener Museum of Art in Chester, Pennsylvania. Her realistic watercolors and oils reflect the Brandywine tradition that surrounded Linda in her youth. Landscapes are her first love and primary subject matter. However, people, animals, flowers and still life are painting subjects as well.
Linda has enjoyed a long career as a professional artist and has been commissioned by a variety of professional and private clients such as the Hershey Trust, Hilton, Westinghouse and General Electric to do paintings for them in this country, Europe and Africa. These works hang in public and private collections here and around the world such as the Widener Collection, Longwood Gardens and Winterthur.
The largest commission to date has been that of a 98 foot by 7 foot mural on the rotunda ceiling of the Association of Baptists Worldwide Evangelism headquarters in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania. The mural depicts 32 different countries where the mission is active. Working overhead, using two levels of scaffolding, it took 5 years to complete this remarkable oil painting. It is open to the public for view by request.
Linda enjoys her life as a professional artist. She currently resides in a picturesque waterside village on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her little dog Alex. The 108 year old house that they share looks like one of her beautiful paintings. She often says, "I'm happy when I paint...I hope that shows!"
