Artist Biography:  Linda Botts Butler is a self-taught artist, and her artwork is inspired by nature, the intrinsic beauty of diverse cultures, and by interactions with fellow artists. Linda most enjoys plein-air and still-life painting using oils and stretched canvas.

Linda was born and grew up in Washington, D.C., and currently lives in Prince Georges County, MD. Linda first recognized her artistic interest and talent during art classes in elementary and junior high school. As a young adult, during her spare time, Linda enrolled in drawing and oil painting classes at the local junior college and the Glen Echo Yellow Barn.

Last summer, Linda exhibited three paintings in the LAG Brookside Gardens Exhibit. Currently, two of her recent paintings are on display in the LAG exhibit at the Laurel/Beltsville Senior Center.
