Linda Wilkes:Artist

Honiton, Devon

Born in Plymouth in 1953, now living in Honiton Devon. For thirty years Linda has studied wildlife and it's habitat in meticulous detail. She tries to include in her wildlife scenes the natural beauty of the landscape in which she gets so much inspiration. Not only does she capture the character of the native wildlife in her paintings but also the landscape, flower and fauna.
Observing, sketching and photographing her subjects, her field studies of nature are very important part in the accuracy of her highly detailed paintings. Her individual technique and approach to painting is sought after by those who appreciate good art.
Specialising in British wildlife, she also studies birds of prey at falconry centres. She has supported the Wildlife trusts and RSPB at her solo exhibitions for many years donating a percentage of sales to them.
Her work has also been published as greetings cards with “Dolphin Fine Art” and “Clover Greetings”, and also the “Barn owl Trust” accepted her design for Christmas cards. She has collectors throughout the UK and Europe, also the USA and Canada. Linda also tutors workshops and has exhibited in various galleries
