As a self-taught artist Linda Daniels has let life teach her what to paint and how to paint it. She left the city and a career in advertising and headed for the hills of northeastern Oklahoma.
Her first house was a rustic cabin in the woods, which she shared with her husband and their three dogs and two cats. Living in such close quarters with the dogs and cats, surrounded by thousands of acres of raw nature, changed her interests and view of life forever.
It is the play of emotions that she tries to impart in her paintings, whether that emotion comes from the subject or from the viewers experience while looking at the painting. She strives to communicate what she felt when she observed a situation or scene. The expression “a picture is worth a thousand words” comes to mind and she feels the ‘spelling’ is the details that she paints.
Linda's artwork has gained international acceptance and she has been invited to participate in every major wildlife show in the U.S.
