       Biography

       

Linda Ole-Aubut, an Estonian Canadian, was born in Montreal. She is a fourth-generation artist and grew up surrounded by the beauty of the arts. Permeated by a vast heritage in which drawing, painting, sculpture, music and poetry mingled together, she inevitably and eagerly nourished her own creativity.

Self-taught, Linda digs ever deeper for a way to express her innermost hope. Each painting is the result of an intellectual, spiritual and emotional quest.  Thoughtfully yet spontaneously, the budding sentiment within her pours forth onto the canvas, and the result is palpable expressionism. Her work is easily recognized by backgrounds dappled with irregular spatula strokes, upon which she sculpts themes of interest. Linda’s paintings are highly textured and their character both peaceful and vibrant. Her work is present in Quebec art galleries and in municipal and private collections across Canada, the USA and in Europe.
