Linda Cheever

Linda has been interested in art from childhood.  At 11 years old she entered and won a coloring contest by a local department store.  Linda is primarily self-taught, but having a mother as an artist (Ada German), she grew up surrounded by art, artists, and art events.  It wasn’t until she and her husband moved to England on a military tour that she became interested in painting.  Others seeing her work brought in a number of commissions.

Linda leans toward realism with drama in her work with emphasis on the interplay of darks and lights.  Her medium is acrylic or oil on canvas or panel board. 

She is an active member of the Coeur d’Alene Art Association and a member of the CAA Board.
