Artist Linda Peters Portraits Abstract Originals For Sale About Me


About Me

Your portrait will be all about you. But if you want to know a little bit about me …

As a teenager pop culture inspired me. I would sit for hours, working on pencil portraits of pop stars from the 1980s. The challenge of capturing a likeness - and people instantly knowing who it was - really excited me. Wonderful photography also moved me.

Too shy at 16 to take up a place at Art College, I became a professional photographer. I have been capturing portraits on film, at weddings and in schools, for 25 years. But I always return to my first love of drawing and painting people.

My portraits range in style from Art Deco to Corporate, from representational to abstract. That versatility is vital if you are going to catch personality. I work in all mediums – watercolour, soft pastel, acrylic, oil, charcoal, pencil  – to suit the style of the portrait.

I love light. It's what makes a portrait come to life. I paint in a sun-filled room high above the river Wye, where the views stretch out to the wonderfully named Welsh hills of Sugar Loaf and Skirrid.

‘Linda’s attention to light makes her portraits an absolute joy. She captured my two daughters perfectly and in a very beautiful way.’   (Ruth from Monmouthshire)
