Linda Skalenda

Born and raised in Victoria, Linda Skalenda started her art education early with youth art lessons at The Greater Victoria Art Gallery. They were a great inspiration and she has been drawing and creative in many ways since. Her interests in colour lead her into a career of interior decorating. Working with clients on choosing colour, she helped create the perfect living environment. In that time she had a need to create in a personal way and started to explore and express her feelings and mood through paint on canvases. Linda Skalenda painting studies come mostly from her own efforts, starting with watercolors. In pursuit of intense colour she studied Pastels, Acrylics and Oils, the medium which moves and produces lovely texture. Painting and studying constantly, she has not looked back. She gathers inspiration for her colourful canvases by sketching or taking photographs while sailing, kayaking and travelling. Whether it is her whimsical animals or her sensitive land or seascapes, the passion and use of exciting, vibrant colours that she puts onto her canvases make you stop in your tracks to take a second look. Linda Skalenda worked and ran her own successful studio/ gallery for five years - two in Nanaimo BC and three in Qualicum Beach, BC. Linda now lives in Victoria on Vancouver Island. She paints for several galleries and enters a few Juried Fine Art Shows every year. Linda has garnered Awards of Excellence, Honorable Mentions and the all-important Peoples Choice awards in many selected juried art shows. Her works are now in collections across Canada, the United States, Ireland and the UK.
