I believe the creative process and creation of artworks is a never-ending educational process. One must observe, learn from that observation, and then translate that knowledge onto one's canvas or other medium. When I stop learning, my growth as an artist will cease.

Linda Lawler is a representational artist, working in an "Old Master's" style - very tight and very detailed. Although oils are her medium of choice, Linda also works in watercolor and pastels, choosing the medium best suited to the concept and mood of her subject.

Basically self-taught, Linda has attended classes at the Alexandria Art League School, Northern Virginia Community College, and the Art Instruction Schools, Inc.

Linda's work was greatly influenced by her Grandmother's love of American history; a love she also instilled in Linda. She paints every day objects from our past; objects which evoke strong nostalgic emotions. Linda's art is most often concerned with home-spun, grass roots American themes.

Linda has taught adult and children's classes in oils, watercolor, and drawing since 1997. She has taught for the Rappahannock County Adult Education system, The 494 Gallery of Warrenton, Va., Joan of Art in Marshall, Va, and Art N More of Warrenton,Va.

At the national level, Linda has exhibited in The Arts for the Parks national competition in Jackson, Wyoming.She has participated in numerous juried shows in the DC Metro area and Northern Virginia, winning several awards in oils and watercolors. Linda's paintings hang in private collections in Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.
