Linda Jane Schmid

Born in New Westminster in 1953, Linda Jane studied drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture in Vancouver and Victoria through colleges, art schools and private classes with established artists. In 1989 she made a commitment to her art, which led to the creation of her first body of work and it’s subsequent exhibition in Victoria. Since that time she has painted and exhibited steadily, working in oils, acrylics, collage and assemblage.

Linda Jane has participated in many group exhibitions, mounted solo shows in public and private venues, and has had gallery representation in Vancouver and Victoria.
From 1997 until late 2007, she lived on Hornby Island, becoming an active member of the arts community, mounting annual solo shows at the Hornby Hall and at Arbutus Arts Gallery, participating in various group shows and auctions, and opening her studio to the public in the summer.

Now living in Vancouver, Linda Jane continues to create local land and skyscapes, incorporating the textures and movement of her “white” or “wind” paintings. She’s also continuing with her “Blue Guitars and Primitive Fiddles” series of found material assemblages.

    “ In all my work, I’m seeking to share my perception and experience of the natural world as alive, mysterious, and articulate.”
