Behind The Artist

Ottawa Valley folk artist Linda Standing has enjoyed painting and drawing since childhood but has only now, in her retirement years, offered her art works for sale.

As a traditional folk artist, Linda is self-taught and her unique pieces depict scenes of the everyday life of our pioneer ancestors, humorous scenes and farm animals.

Her canvases are often recycled materials such as old cupboard doors and remnants of wood.

When creating her works of art, she visualizing herself in the scenes she is painting.
