Oregon acrylic artist Linda Whiting has been designing and painting for over 30 years. She has displayed and sold her work in galleries and gift shops in Idaho, Oregon, and California.
April 2006, Whiting opened Designs by Linda Art Studio & Gift Shop on the family ranch two miles east of Burns, Oregon. She also sells her work through other gift shops as well as various art shows and festivals. Although her gallery is closed at the present time, the art studio is open by appointment by calling 541-589-2025 or by contacting the artist through: www.yessy.com/lrwhiting (Please click on the side banner after reading more below).
Living on a ranch has given Whiting the opportunity to closely observe the subjects she loves to paint; local birds, wildlife, wild flowers, and historic buildings. Many of the same subjects are included in her handbeaded wall hangings, handbags, and jewelry designs.
Bead embroidery has become a favorite art medium for Whiting since 2010. As a detail-orientated artist and miniaturist, stitching tiny beads on small surfaces is a natural for the artist. It’s as natural as painting onand beading around small cabochons she includes in her jewelry designs and on her Keepsake boxes. In 2011, one of Whiting’s hand-painted and hand beaded Juniper Keepsake boxes was a finalist in an international beading competition.
Whiting is an active supporter in her local community promoting and coordinating art shows and events. She also promotes and assists other artists when ever possible. Although her gallery is closed at the present time, the art studio is open by appointment by calling 541-589-2025 or by contacting the artist. She may also be contacted through her Facebook page Designs by Linda Art Studio & Gift Shop. Please click on the side banner. Custom orders are always welcome.
