About

Western Australian Artist Linda Bartlett was born in Liverpool England, and moved to Australia with her parents at the age of 13.

Linda started painting at the age of 29 winning an Australian national award at the age of 30 but due to work and family commitments she was unable to find the time for her art, eventually putting her craft aside until recently when she retired.

She now spends time daily in her studio where she works with watercolor, acrylics, pastels inks and various media's. Experimenting has become a daily activity and she loves to work with different ways of moving around the paint on the canvas using all kinds of products.

Linda's introduction to finding her own style and playing with paint came from her first instructor Dot Smith ( a well know Perth artist) Dot encouraged her to play with colour she felt not the colour she saw.

In 2015 she received a "Highly Commended" Award in the International Seascape Competition.

Thank you for visiting this site and I hope you enjoy Linda's work.

10% of the sales of Linda's paintings go Street Smart ...an incredible charity focusing on our serious issue of homelessness in Australia
