Linda McKie McClellan was born of an artistic temperament. She began at an early age drawing and painting her natural surroundings. She is a native New Yorker but has called scenic Westport, Connecticut, her home for many years.
Linda studied at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia and the Wooster Art Center in Danbury, CT. While studying at Tyler she was one of two freshman students whose artwork was purchased by the university for permanent exhibit at their downtown campus. She also has studied independently with artist Betsy Beach, artist Lisa Arnold of the Silvermine Guild, Richard Byrnes of the Greenwich Art Society and more recently with the late Peter Konsterlie, Gallery Director of The Schelfhaudt Gallery, University of Bridgeport.
Linda finds the great outdoors a constant source of inspiration for her work. She has been experimenting with many different art forms, and is intrigued by new mediums. She works with oils, pastels, acrylics, watercolors, mono prints, and mixed media. She will often combine her paintings with organic material, found objects and interference acrylic paint.
She has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows. Her work is in private collections throughout the country, and recently she was commissioned to do a landscape painting of an art collector’s property.
