"I live in Fort Lauderdale, FL where I create drawings, paintings, sculptures, and ceramics as well as wildlife & world digital photography. My travels to France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Israel, India, Ireland, Africa, China, Central and South America continue to give me a profound respect for ancient art and antiquity." Linda's portrait & figurative paintings are all inspired from actual life models posing.

I facilitated life drawing, painting & sculpture workshops in Fort Lauderdale for most of these years. Currently, I am dedicated to creating public sculptures of an historic significance in the Fort Lauderdale area."
