Shelton grew up on a ranch in South Central, Washington. Since youth, she has been intrigued with how
to transfer images, whether real or imaginary, from the mind’s eye to
paper. After earning a Bachelor of Arts
Degree with a minor in Art from Central Washington State College, Shelton
joined United Airlines as a flight attendant.
During her 30 year airline adventure, Linda experimented in many different
art media . . . joyfully discovering what each amazing world offered. Although watercolor is her favorite, Linda
continues to explore all art media in many projects from cork boards to chairs
for charity and everything in between.
MEDIA: Acrylic, Colored
Pencil, Pen and Ink and Watercolor

It guides and drives me to capture that spark of humor or sense of
respect I hold for nature both whimsically and otherwise. I find working with watercolor excites and
challenges me. I love how it mingles in
most extraordinary ways. Just as a
mystery, it offers much to be solved . . . in particular, capturing that
elusive, luminous quality of light. All
subjects for my paintings are eclectic.
It may be the mood, the temperature, a pose, a family connection, or the
contrast in colors. I paint to convey a story. Imagination . . . what a wonderful gift!
