Linda Lynton is a British born artist now living in Woodstock after a journalistic/editorial career in New York City. She returned to her first love, Art, in 2013 and focuses on all aspects of nature, from sweeping landscapes to detailed drawings of small natural elements all found in the Hudson Valley. She uses two genres--oil painting and ink drawing--to express her deep respect for nature and wild places. Her plein air and studio work in oils is vigorous, active and colorful, having been influenced by her experiences in India with its vibrant tropical palette. Her ink drawings (often enhanced with natural dyes) expresses her fascination with the detailed use of line, stemming from many childhood experiences with Persian miniatures and botanical art.
