Linda Fraine About

I have been creating and selling my work for over 30 years--, from portraits, paintings and murals, to note cards and T-shirt designs. I also created architectural drawings, Trompe L'Oeil and everything in between. I have been in several juried art shows, won awards, had three one-person shows and the good fortune to have been represented by seven galleries from New England to Florida. I am a member of The Portrait Society of America, Art League of Bonita Springs and a national art registry at ArtistsRegistry.com. I have also created a line of Note Cards, Christmas Cards and Prints of my original pen & ink drawings and acrylic paintings. Many of my friends have been collecting my Christmas cards for over 25 years. These can be purchased from me or at my online shop, LinsArtwork.Etsy.com. I am originally from Manchester, England. My family emigrated to America in 1970 when I was a teenager. It was hard to adjust to the American way of life at first, but it all worked out very well in the end. I have a wonderful husband-- married 30 years now and he still makes me laugh--, two great kids and the best granddaughter in the world. Life is about family and what you can give them. They keep me alive and painting!! They are big lovers, and critics, of my work. 3 comments
