About Me

Hi there and thanks for dropping by! My name is Linda and my pleasure is painting. I’m a self taught artist in the “naive” style. I enjoy happy colourful scenes, preferably with a few animals around.

Cats make great models. They’re natural show-offs and so much more forgiving than human models. When you paint a cat they rarely complain you made their nose too big! Having three around the house (one Havana, two rescues) I’m never short of a kitty helpers.

My second great love is history. I live in Victorian Matlock, in the Derbyshire Dales and spent many years working in an office within the ruins of a 17th century country house.

I’m a member of The Association of British Naïve Artists, an organisation which promotes Naive Art throughout Great Britain and abroad. I’ve written two novels set in and around Derbyshire, and I enjoy walking and the countryside.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy my pictures.

Want to buy a painting?

I’m happy to mail pictures anywhere within Europe or overseas, but postage costs will need to be covered by the purchaser – contact me and I will check costs and most economical means of shipping.

If you’d like any information about one of my pictures, or more detailed photographs of the painting, please get in touch.  I’d be delighted to help.
