A Florida native and a prolific self-taught artist, Linda Underwood signs her many varied paintings using her full initials. She is a third generation Florida beach girl from a family of talented self-starters. Her works are created with oils, acrylics, pastels, encaustics, watercolors, pencils, ink, fabric, clay, paper, and found items.
Artist LYU is truly a mixed media artist, who likes to pick it up, clean it up and use it up. She even paints on flattened aluminum cans! Additionally, Linda’s keen eye as a photographer enables her to capture life in Florida as she sees it everyday. She will, on occasion, paint on a large canvas from a photograph that she took just hours earlier. Copies of her original works are available on giclées, greeting cards, and prints.
