Linda Wilder

Contemporary Artist

"With intuitive energy and the use of bold strokes, light, and texture, Linda strives to capture the mood and emotion of her environment. Her paintings appear vividly representational, but upon closer inspection, one can see the intimate nuances and abstract tendencies which elevate and enrich her work."

Growing up an ‘air force brat’, Linda travelled extensively across Canada, and settled in Alberta. Her creative ability was readily evident as a child and eventually was able to follow her destiny. Her education consists of formal training in Red Deer College (Art &Design) and Uof C BFA program as well as numerous workshops with acclaimed artists. Linda is a prolific artist and enjoys a variety of subject matter and tools (her favourite being the palette knife). Living in Calgary and painting fulltime, she has enjoyed many successes and accolades. She is an active participant in the art community and has shown in various galleries and juried shows. Linda’s paintings are enjoyed in both corporate and private collections across Canada and abroad.

"Art is a way of life and I create 24 hours a day…maybe not holding a brush, but by seeing, thinking and feeling.”
