Linda has great passion for the outdoors and is an avid hiker. She enjoys photographing nature during her journeys and in August 2018 she completed hiking all of the 48 mountains that are over 4000 feet in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. She is in the process of compiling a portfolio of her favorite images from her hikes through the grand and lush forests of the North Country.
In addition to photographing all the beauty around her, Linda is training to paint tranquil scenes of nature, those moments of solitude that often go unnoticed in our busy lives and increasing distractions. She is inspired by the works of the 19th century landscape artists such as George Inness, Edward Mitchel Bannister and more contemporary artist such as Don Stone. She enjoys painting dramatic and playful still lifes and pet/animal portraits. Her favorite medium to paint with is oils.
In 2018, Linda returned to her passion for fine art after a 10 year hiatus. During those 10 years, she worked as a theatre costumer, costume designer, periodically faux-painted sets and murals for musical productions. Prior to that, while raising her children, she studied fine art with Margaret Lachut of Cumberland, RI, enrolled in various classes at Rhode Island School of Design continuing ed, and participated in a week-long residency with Caleb Stone on Monhegan Island off the coast of Maine.
Linda has a B.A. from Providence College, and a J.D. from Suffolk Law School.
