A native of Floresville, Texas, Linda Calvert Jacobson has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil and painting since the age 14. She credits her parents with encouraging her as a child to paint and study art, which has become a life-long passion and is now her profession. Linda is well-known for her interpretive and somewhat abstract paintings of wildflowers.
Linda's wildflowers are in private collections in the U.S. and around the world. They have been shown in galleries and fine art exhibits from coast to coast, including New York, Vermont, Wyoming, Florida, California, Pennsylvania, New Mexico and Arizona. Linda has twice been invited for solo shows at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin, Texas. Her art is also licensed internationally and has been on products sold in the UK, Germany, Australia, and even the Middle East.
Since Fall 2016, a special series of Linda's original wildflower paintings are being featured in the Texas Highways "True Texas" Gift Shop, promoted through Texas Highways' monthly magazine and online. Each small painting is created for Texas Highways and signed and numbered by the artist.
Linda Calvert Jacobson is a member of... the Wimberley Arts & Cultural Alliance, Wimberley Chamber of Commerce, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, New Braunfels Art League, and Canyon Lake Art Guild.
"As a child growing up on a family farm in rural Texas, I developed a deep and profound love for nature and, especially, for wildflowers. That experience is still part of who I am today and is my inspiration. As an artist, I have chosen to express my soul through interpretive, colorful wildflower paintings that allow the viewer to become part of the experience. By using a somewhat abstract technique, I invite the person looking at my artwork to delve deeper into themselves as well as the paintings, which creates an opportunity for the viewer to personalize the experience. Through my art, I am sharing the simple joy I see in wildflowers for generations to come. I have often been told that my paintings are 'happy.' If my art brings joy to someone's heart and spirit, what more could I ask for?"
