Linda Sheppard, Fine Art
Linda Sheppard is an experienced professional artist interested in capturing the essence of her subjects through the effects created by light, color, and shape. Her luminous paintings include portraits and figures in pastel, oil, and watercolor and also old master drawing techniques.
Linda has studied portrait and figure painting at the National Academy of Design, the Art Students League, the Pastel Society of America Workshops and with Daniel Greene and most recently attended advanced portrait and figure workshops at the Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia. She has held over 30 solo shows in galleries in Denver, California, Minnesota, New York, Vermont, Connecticut and South Carolina.
The Phoenix Symphony featured her work in their “Feast of Art, Music, and Nature." She completed a two year commission painting life on a ranch in Colorado. Her work hangs in public, private and corporate collections throughout the United States.
Linda has taught art classes and workshops since 1970. Currently, she teaches and mentors several young people and adults in her studio. Her goal is to help students process the art principles internally, in order to paint more intuitively. In this way their work will better move the viewer to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the beauty in our world.
