My name is Linda ....and I'm looking forward to seeing both familiar and new faces in Lisbon soon! I'm a Landscape Designer and also teach at Portland Community college. My husband and I tend a small vineyard and a garden, and enjoy cycling, hiking and photography. I tell my students to draw, draw , draw....but often don't find the time myself, except when I'm traveling on vacation. I enjoy sketching in pen and ink, pencil and watercolor, and often do perspective sketches to help clients visualize the designs that I do for them. I know I'll be inspired by the many talented sketchers coming to Lisbon....just as I was at the first symposium here in Portland.

See you soon!





Sketching with Tia at the Portland Farmer's Market a year ago......


Great sketches!
You will have three full "travelling days" in Lisbon, just for the fun of drawing.
Let's go for it!

Linda, so happy to read your post here. I am leaving tomorrow for Lisbon, can't wait to meet up with you again! oh yes, nice sketches, I see splashes, hehe.
