As a freelance artist, Linda Wilmes has many accomplishments to her credit, along with
numerous awards and accolades, and countless paintings in both private and corporate
collections throughout the United States. Working primarily in watercolor and acrylics,
both pastel and drawing can be seen with vivid color, sparkling sunlight, and mysterious
shadows. Light and color inspire this artist, and challenge her with a disciplined
character to capture the moment. The mood surrounding any subject may
become a new and intriguing theme for a new piece.
“The beauty of nature and being close to the earth have always presented a deep feeling of awe: there is a spiritual connection with each sunrise, change of light, tone of the atmosphere, that engulfs me, and resurfaces again when I pick up a brush.”
Along with being an instructor of drawing and painting, she is an accomplished muralist. Some of her most noteworthy works can be seen in the dome, of St. Joseph Church, Wentzville, MO, along with 8 large canvas paintings of saints and angels, Four 5′ x 10′ panels at St. Gianna Catholic Church, and the rotunda at Pitman Funeral Home, both in Wentzville, MO
