Linda Tuma Robertson

Linda has been painting since she was old enough to hold a paint brush. She won her first blue ribbon on a painting in kindergarten.  The artist works exclusively in oils, painting the American landscape with big skies filled with clouds, sunrises, and sunsets. Light and atmosphere that transform the environment with unexpected color, moods, and patterns are her inspiration.

Linda participates in Small Works Great Wonders at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, where she received the 2009 Buyer’s Choice Award, The Collector’s Reserve at the Gilcrease Museum, in which she was awarded Honorable Mention in 2012,  Western Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and The Russell held at the C. M. Russell Museum.  Recently, Anne Morand, Curator for the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum, awarded Linda Best of Show at the Winter Gala Benefit Art Show and Sale in Ardmore, Oklahoma.  Additionally, she was commissioned by the State of Oklahoma to paint a five-foot by seven –foot painting to hang in the Capitol.

The artist works from her home/studio in Edmond, Oklahoma, but loves the challenge and adventure of plein air painting as well. She travels around her native state, Oklahoma, and the West drawing, photographing, and painting the land.

Linda is represented by the Howell Gallery in Oklahoma City and the Astoria Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming.

“This year’s paintings are from a trip last March when I visited the Missions and the Texas Hill Country.  The wildflowers were in full bloom and everything was alive with spring.”
