Linda Tuma Robertson
Linda Tuma Robertson has a renewed energy, enthusiasm and dedication after having been forced to slow down the past few years because of an illness. “I have heard that ‘good things come out of bad things,’ which was evident in this situation since it allowed me to reflect on my art,” she says. “I came to the conclusion that I want to paint no matter what. Painting is synonymous with who I am. My goal is to bring attention to God’s creations, showing its spiritual quality and simplicity of life which provides true happiness.” Landscapes are the subjects Robertson is most inspired by, and she would rather be in the middle of nature than anywhere else. “The constantly changing moods of the land create a kaleidoscope of subjects,” she explains. “My desire is to entrap a fleeting moment in time and make it the basis of my painting. My inspiration can be color, light, or sometimes, something that can’t be explained except through a painting.”
Robertson is represented by Astoria
Fine Art in Jackson, Wyoming; the Howell Gallery in Oklahoma City; and her work can be found in her home studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. At Astoria Fine Art, she mainly presents paintings that depict the Tetons in all seasons and times of day, while her work at the Howell Gallery is focused around the Oklahoma landscape as well as other locales. In her studio, Robertson exhibits a conglomeration of subjects and paintings.
