It has always been Linda Sorensen’s destiny to become an artist. Mainly self-taught, Linda’s early influences include world-renowned wildlife and conservationist Robert Bateman. Linda has lived close to the land in the Algonquin Park region for over 45 years, where she took a sabbatical from her work to raise her family as part of the back-to-the-land movement of the 1970s. On returning to her art, she has been a prolific award-winning professional artist for almost 25 years.

Linda’s work reflects her passion for wilderness and wildlife, which speaks vibrantly as an advocate for nature. She paints on-site in all seasons in oils. Working from her own photography from wilderness trips, she paints large iconic paintings on canvas in the studio and winter months.

Linda is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and Artists for Conservation. She belongs as a member to East Central Ontario Artists Association. She is also a member of Wild Women, one of three women artists who paint the wilderness. The hardcover book, Wild Women Painters of the Wilderness was published in 2013. Linda has been a member of the Madawaska Valley Studio Tour for 20 years. She also operates her own studio-gallery and is open by appointment year-round.
