Linda Medved Lufkin
St. Paul painter Linda Medved Lufkin, began her botanical art journey in 2014 after working for many years with portraiture, still life and landscape in oils and then a long career as a decorative painter. Linda was thrilled to discover botanical art where she found she could really push her accuracy and attention to detail and enhance her connection to nature where there is no lack of inspiring subject matter for her to explore. Working within the boundaries of watercolor as a medium and vellum as a substrate her most recent work tries to pull out the delicacies of the subject giving the viewer the opportunity to really appreciate them, as well as, honoring the dimension of the form, the color and the textural differences that each subject has.
Linda is very happy to of found a home among other botanical artist and have the opportunity to show her work though the GRC and many ASBA national and international exhibitions where she has won a number of awards including The Helen Gray Garber Award, for her Purple Popcorn, The Richard & Lily Bates Award for her Sunflower and the Best in Show for her Sea Holly painting. She has illustrated a brand-new fig species in the scientific paper: Additions and Changes to Ficus (Moraceae) in New Guinea and has paintings in the Elloise Butler Wildflower Garden Florilegium. She has taught at The Minnesota School of Botanical Art and other locations as a guest artist/teacher.
