artist in studio drawing

Linda Laforge is a portrait artist who was relentlessly encouraged by a friend to draw Caricatures at a fundraiser several years ago. She gave in and hasn’t turned back since. “It reminded me of the countless drawings I did of my teachers in school. Except these people enjoyed being drawn and they like their drawings!”

Her artistic influences are varied, including the likes of Norman Rockwell, celtic artist Courtney Davis and Canadian painter Emily Carr. She is predominantly self taught. “My philosophy for my art has changed a few times over the years. It’s now down to five words. Have fun and bring happiness.” As a portrait artist, Linda sees the details of each person’s face and character and quickly brings them to life on paper or canvas.

Linda has drawn caricatures for personal and corporate parties of all kinds, from birthdays for kids and adults to weddings. She has worked for the Township of Wasaga Beach, the City of Barrie, the Source, Pratt Homes and Chartwell, to name a few.

She enjoys putting a smile on people’s faces.
