Hi, I’m Linda, an artist, creative, linguist, nature lover, animal enthusiast, and a single mother of two. I have lived in Namibia since 2008 and always knew that this was my home. So even if I wasn’t born here, I knew I belonged here from the first day I arrived. Having the honour to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world, with vast wildlife right at my doorstep, I was called to draw the beautiful animals around me. After experimenting for years with acrylics, watercolours, and pencils, I always came back to charcoal, graphite pencils, and pastels as my favourite mediums. I am mostly fascinated, though, by the fact, that I can create so much atmosphere and expression with just black and white spaces. The African wildlife is breathtaking, and I often concentrate on the endangered species to bring awareness as to how fragile our nature is. I wish for my children’s children to be able to witness the full beauty of our country, Namibia, with all its inhabitants. My art is my voice for our endangered animals. I’m always open for commissions, be it a pencil portrait, pet portrait or a specific wildlife / animal drawing you’d like to order. Kindly contact me to discuss the details, availability, delivery time and price.
