Meet the maker Linda Carter

Hello I'm Linda Carter, I live in Maidenhead Berkshire with my husband and two children, dog and bearded dragon. I have been a full time Mum to my two boys who are now teenagers. Before I had children I spent 12 years working in graphic design. I would say that I have always had a love for art and design, as a child I spent much of my time drawing, painting and designing cute little characters while others were outside playing.

I started making cards about 10 years ago just for friends and family but in the last few years with more time on my hands I have expanded my range of items to include hand drawn/painted and digital artwork, word art frames, cartoons and gifts.

I have a diploma in cartooning with the London Art College and love to create cartoon portraits. I have been enjoying local art classes over the last 6 months and am adding more options to my shop as a result of this.

All of my artwork is created using quality artist products. I use the Faber-Castell Polychromos and Prismacolour pencils, pen, pen and watercolour pencil, acrylic paint. More recently I have been learning soft pastel and oil pastel and hope to offer these options very soon.

Most of my artwork is created from customer photographs or artist friendly sites such as Paint My Photo.

Feel free to browse my shop, I hope you enjoy the selection. xx
