Contemporary, original acrylic paintings.  Abstract shapes, music notation, classical guitar themes with original ideas mixed up together. Bold colours throughout attract the viewer.

Linda Beattie studied graphic design at Fine Art at North Wales School of Art & Design. Moving on to study  drawing, painting and portraiture at The Heatherley School of Fine Art in London.

A career in Graphic Design has influenced my style of painting and drawing. Bold, flat colours appear alongside areas painted with a strong attention to detail. In contrast, I often paint using a limited palette of colours to simplify the image, therefore encouraging viewers to use their own imagination.

I enjoy playing classical guitar and my latest paintings include musical references. Some feature the romantic 19th century Lacote style guitars along with more contemporary guitars.

My drawings and paintings are displayed in many private collections including:  Australia, Canada, Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden, UK and USA.
