Painting on the wharf at Struisbaai harbour
On the fynbos trail to the top of the Soetmuisberg
the past 10 years I have been fortunate enough to cruise the narrowboat
canals of England, live in a quaint Isle of Man
harbour village, experience the timeless character of Cyprus and its
people, and then return to South Africa to settle in the picturesque
nestled between mountains and the sea. Surrounded by such contrast,
such beauty, who could not resist picking
up a brush
to capture those special moments in life?
Studied art at Natal
Technikon in Durban.
Painted under the tutorship
of Leanora Haden of the Everard family for five years.
Stopping over in Napier?
You'll find a large number of Linda's paintings at Riek Creative in main street, along with a fascinating array of sculptures and paintings by dozens of other artists.
There are also more paintings and lots of prints for sale at
Village Trading Post, 100m up the street (they have a wide selection of gifts too), plus more paintings at Vindigo on the edge of town, where you'll also be able to stock up your cellar with a wide variety of excellent local wines.
Further afield but not too
far away, you'll find a selection of Linda's paintings
at Bredasdorp Square in Bredasdorp, 17km from Napier - good meals too - and at Southern Wright Gallery in L'Agulhas, half an hour away.
