Featured Artist Linda Todd

Hi Everyone!

Today’s Featured Artist is Linda Todd:

I first realised I was an artist at the age of 12, I wrote poetry, and coloured in with coloured pencils and pens. I had quite a collection of sketchbooks which I enjoyed working in and sitting in the garden in brilliant sunshine making art. I was brought up in Trinidad and Bahrain with a spell in Canada. My travels around the world created an appetite for colour, pattern and texture. My art has developed into areas of strong interest in Nature and colour which influences my life.

I have been an artist since I was born. Teachers at school would tell my parents I was very artistic and had a great sense of colour and pattern. Up to my current age that is 55 years.

 

I use Liquitex Acrylics because I love the colour ranges and the opaque creamy texture. I use 100% cotton canvases and my brush collection is immense. Pro Arte, Windsor & Newton and synthetic Japanese brushes with bright coloured handles are all in my toolkit!

My tips for artists:

Always buy the best of what you can afford and take care of your tools and materials. Be canny, a Scottish word for thrifty yet wise at the same time. Buy in the sales and shop around!

Be true to yourself! Make art from your heart in that way you allow your own uniqueness to develop and shine. Be courageous and follow your heart!
