Linda M. Anderson
Bio of BC Multi Media Artist
Linda M Anderson
The ebb and flow of an artistic mind can be fascinating. For me, it has taken many forms. I don’t remember a time when creating was not part of my life. I trained as a Commercial artist but expanded my artistic experiences as an owner/operator of an Arts & Craft store and I focused on learning how to do and teach every product I sold. Just ask me – I probably know the basic procedures of most art forms.
I now balance my time with my personal painting, the challenge of entering juried shows, and working in several mediums at the same time: water colours, acrylics, mixed media, porcelain painting and hand crafting jewelry, also traveling as a workshop instructor and doing private lessons at my home.
I am a teacher of visually impaired artists and do critiques via the internet.
Workshop instructor for Artist’s groups in Sooke, West Shore, Metchosin, Duncan, Princeton, Osoyoos, Keremeos, Oliver, Summerland, Penticton, Peachland and Merritt. Taught Art Therapy for Social Services. Guest Instructor for grade 11 & 12 year students of Princeton Secondary school and of primary art teachers for Oliver School district. Facilitator of Pro D day instruction for Sooke School District on “Communicating with Colour” (created by me) for ages from 2yrs to adults (in the home, classroom and workplace).
I have participated in many prominent shows; published in “Artists of BC”; created murals for the Sooke Legion, Cordova Bay Parade of Homes, The Hitching Post and Hitching Post II Restaurants, the 4 Square Church & the Cultural Center in Princeton. Completed many commissioned portraits and paintings.
