Linda Pettie

The hinterlands of the natural world are are an endless source of inspiration for Linda.   She finds the attempt to capture the drama of those untamed spaces, when caught in a fleeting moment of light and colour  both challenging and  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  devote more of her time to painting in recent years, Linda has stepped up her commitment.  A highly successful   solo show at the Edinburgh Fringe was followed by a group show and again a solo show in Edinburgh the following year.  While exhibiting  paintings at the Pittenweem Arts Festival, the Borders Art Fair and a feature show at a Borders Gallery,  Linda has been intensely developing her art throughout. She is currently working hard on fresh processes and ideas at her studio at Fire Station Creative in Dunfermline.
