Linda Williams was raised in Niantic, Connecticut, a lovely seashore community where she developed her love of the water and its' surroundings. After attending college, she worked as a fashion illustrator in an upscale clothing store, and her illustrations were published in the Courier Journal (Louisville, Kentucky).
Relocating to the coast of Florida early in her marriage, while raising her two daughters, Linda continued to "dabble" in various forms of painting. She has found through the years that her first love is watercolor. Now retired, she finally has the time to devote to whatever inspires her: nature’s bounty.
Linda is mostly self-taught, but she was fortunate enough to have taken a workshop under the well-known watercolorist, Sue Archer, and also took classes under the late Charlotte Griffin in Cocoa Village. She paints mostly from her photographs, but also has permission from two photographers: Raymond Uzanas and Dawn Harrison.
