Linda Whynman moved to San Miguel de Allende over 16 years ago from New York. She has been involved in art and art education for her entire professional career. She taught art from kindergarten level to Masters Degree programs. She was also the Arts in Education Director in New York State. Her areas of media expertise include watercolor and computer graphics.
She has designed books for several authors and her paintings are represented in galleries and homes from the East Coast of the US to Mexico.
Watercolor is my medium of choice. I enjoy the interplay of pigments on the texture of the paper and letting the materials work in their natural state. When I’m sketching and painting, I am fully present in the moment. It is a deeply pleasurable and creative experience. It keeps me centered. Then, later on, when I look at a painting I have completed, I remember all the sounds, the temperature, the people who passed by, and the entire plein aire experience. This process has helped me to love Mexico even more. The colors and vistas and the people of Mexico are a plethora of painting options.
In addition to showing at Galeria Obraje, Whynman is represented by Galeria SanFrancisco in Fabrica Aurora.
