Featured Artist of the Month

   Linda Scott Taylor


Instead of searching for beautiful scenes to paint, I keep my eyes open for those special intersections of place and time when an otherwise ordinary landscape is transformed into something extraordinary. Many of the scenes I paint are within miles of my own backyard; others are moments captured during my travels.  I am particularly drawn to scenes in which the humble vernacular architecture of a region contributes to the sense of place.


Linda started painting in 2014, after retiring from careers as a corporate attorney and then as an interior designer. She grew up on a cattle ranch in Oregon, then spent most of her adult life living and working in Boston. Since retirement, she and her husband spend summers in rural Vermont and winters in Miami.

Linda holds a BS from U of Minnesota, a JD from Columbia Law School, and a Certificate of Decorative Arts from New England School of Art and Design. She had a one-person exhibition in 2015 at Tenney Memorial Library in Newbury, Vermont, and her paintings have been included in various group exhibitions in Vermont and Florida, including the 2016 summer juried exhibition of the Vermont Pastel Society.
