Linda St. Clair
Linda St. Clair (born 1952 and died upon October 14, 2018) was an American contemporary wildlife painter. She was best known for her portrayal of vibrant roosters, cows, and further barnyard, domestic and wild animals. Her take steps has been established for its feat to capture an animal's attitude and personality. Themes of pride, love and motherhood are found in her works.
Influenced by artists of the Southwest, St. Clair began exploring a greater variety of approaches in her own work. She began using looser brush strokes and bolder colors to convey the illusion of detail and a more contemporary slant than earlier works.
She was a two-time recipient of the Grumbacher Gold Medal and her art has earned a place in the long-lasting collection of the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin and University of Texas at Austin.
