Linda has had a passion for art her entire life.  She is known for her sweet vintage images and down-home style of painting. Linda loves everything old:  movies, music, books, recipes, manners, furniture, crocks and rustic wood signs. She paints what she loves, primarily in watercolor, pen and ink, and sometimes acrylic. Her heartwarming designs can be found on a wide variety of items, such as dishes, flags, rugs, kitchen and bath ensembles, as well as Christmas cards, bags and wraps. She has also written and illustrated a number of books, including a cookbook of her family recipes. She and her husband Dan have two grown sons and four wonderful grandchildren.
