3rd Prize PAWS 2004 and Champion 2001

Linda Travers Smith


"Frosty Whiskers"



"Gannet Pair"



Painting started as a hobby in California . After taking Decorative Art classes, I discovered a watercolour with Trevor Bennett. We painted in her studio and in desert locations. I returned to England and found watercolour the ideal medium with small children around. During six years in Germany , I had two one-man shows and some commissions. We moved to Washington DC and with the children at school I had time for classes, initially in Oriental Art and then with one of Washington’s new and exciting watercolorists, David Daniels, who also taught at the Smithsonian.  My excitement with colour and nature evolved. We returned to the UK in 1996. I have since exhibited with The Royal Institute of Watercolours, The Wildlife Art Society and as a finalist in PAWS for four years (winning overall in 2001). I am an elected member of the Society of Women Artists and the Armed Forces Art Society, which exhibits at the Mall Galleries, I was selected to hang at the Laing Exhibition.  

I paint with a group at West Wycombe , who have a very successful annual show.  I am currently teaching watercolour classes with Buckinghamshire Adult Learning and workshops at the Queens Park Centre.


Each artist has also been sent a Certificate.
