Linda Pettie

The hinterlands of the natural world are are an endless source of inspiration for Linda.  Currently enjoying experimenting with oils and palette knives, her memory returns often to  these remote lands to re-imagine in her paintings  their lonely mountains, mysterious caverns and forested backwaters. The attempt to capture the drama of those untamed corners when caught in a fleeting moment of light and colour is always exciting!  

Whenever Linda could find the time, out would come the paints.  Over the years she has created pieces for galleries and  for private commissions - also attracting the attention of the Conran Group who commissioned six paintings for Habitat. Her work is also held in private collections in London and Australia.

Happily now able to fully to devote her time to her art, Linda has stepped up her commitment and over the last three years has had two solo and one feature exhibition in galleries in Edinburgh and the Borders. She has also enjoyed meeting art lovers who visited her as part of the Pittenweem Arts Festival and Open Studios at her art hub - Studio 20,  Fire Station Creative in Dunfermline.


Linda's work is  on show over the year at the Flat Cat Gallery in Lauder.
