By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the second of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary Canadian landscape painter Linda Wilder (born 1955 in Quebec, Canada). 

Growing up an ‘air force brat’, Linda travelled extensively across Canada, and settled in Alberta. Her creative ability was readily evident as a child and eventually was able to follow her destiny.

Her education consists of formal training in Red Deer College (Art & Design) and U Of C BFA program as well as numerous workshops with acclaimed artists. Linda is a prolific artist and enjoys a variety of U and tools (her favourite being the palette knife).

 

Living in Calgary and painting full-time, she has enjoyed many successes and accolades, and is represented by Mountain Galleries in Banff, Jasper and Whistler, in Canada, and Bronze Coast Gallery in Oregon. 

 

Linda's paintings are enjoyed in both corporate and private collections across Canada and world-wide.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist

                   Linda Wilder (Born 1955)

               ARTIST'S STATEMENT
 

"All my landscapes are inspired in some way or another by the environment surrounding me whether it be a specific mountain, waterfall or an abstract shape. If my heart skips a beat I take a second look to absorb and analyze. The simplest things capture my attention ...the way light bounces off the water and rocks in a stream, the contrast of snow against the warm under brush, creating abstracted forms.....it all sparks an emotional cord.

The environment stimulates your senses as you breath the fresh air taking in all the sights and sounds; a truly awe inspiring and humbling experience. These paintings are my personal response to these surroundings both on location and from my studio.
