About the Artist
Linda Tuma Robertson was born with a love for painting. When she was introduced to oils at the age of 9, it immediately became her favorite medium. She regularly exhibits at the Collectors Reserve held at Gilcrease Museum's American Art in Miniature, the C.M. Russell Auction, and Small Works Great Wonders Winter Art Sale, where she received the Cynthia Post Memorial Buyer's Choice Award in 2009. The Oklahoma State Senate commissioned her to paint a five-by-seven foot painting that hangs in the Capitol. Her work can be found at the Astoria Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and the Howell Gallery in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Her home and studio are in Edmond, Oklahoma.
What artist inspires you? Why?
Artists that can draw me into their paintings by capturing my emotions are the ones that inspire me. Looking at their work gives me a thrill and a respect.
How do you come up with an idea for a new piece of artwork?
Nature gives me myriad ideas and inspiration. It never disappoints or lets me get bored. I travel around the countryside taking in all of the beauty and gaining numerous painting possibilities. When I am confined to my studio I search through my hundreds of photographs and plein air studies taking me back to that special moment and giving me a potential painting.
Where is the most inspirational place you've visited lately?
The Grand Tetons never disappoint me with their magical aura.
