An animal portrait artist
Born in St. Andrews in 1976, Linda Bloomfield now lives and works in Dumfries, painting domestic animals, wildlife and birds to commission, as well as the occasional landscape and historical building.
Possessing a love of both art and animals from an early age, her affection for her subjects enables Linda to bring to life a truly exquisite portrait, depicting the character, likeness, personality and expression of each commission painted.
Linda's working career began with several years in administration. However, her desire to travel prompted a 2 year experience of a lifetime in Australia. Whilst travelling and still painting as a hobby, she was asked by the owner of 'Zoom Top' - a famous racing greyhound, to illustrate a book on this dog. On returning, as well as travelling over 7000 miles, Linda completed over 16 individual commissions whilst in Australia.
Since setting up in full time business in July 2001, Linda has enjoyed 3 successful solo exhibitions, has reproduced a collection of her paintings into limited edition print and continues to sell originals and paint commissioned portraits for individual customers.
She has enjoyed an exhibition at the W.H. Patterson Gallery, Albemarle Street, Mayfair, London.
