Art and nature have always been a passion for Linda Tuma Robertson. She won her first blue ribbon for painting in kindergarten. Since that time she has received numerous awards and honors. Recently, she was presented with the Cynthia Post Buyer's Choice Award at the Small Works Great Wonders winter sale held at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.

Linda credits her parents for giving her the opportunity to develop her art talent. At the age of nine, she studied oil painting with the late John Shelby Metcalf, a prominent Oklahoma oil painter, and it immediately became her favorite medium She also revers the landscape and the ever changing skies. her family trips west and throughout her native state of Oklahoma helped develop this awareness of nature. These subjects with their many moods created by the atmosphere and light inspire her paintings.

By the time the artist was twenty, her work had been displayed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Kerr Museum, the Oklahoma Museum of Art, and the Oklahoma Art Center. Her painting "Fall in the Kiamichis" was reproduced in the Bell Telephone pamphlet "Telephone Talk."

In the 1970's marriage and two children temporarily interrupted her career. Once her family became independent, she returned to her other love, art. Since 1998, the artist has participated in the Gilcrease Museum's American Art in Miniature Show. Her work was also chosen for several top 100 Arts for the Parks competitions and Oil Painters of America national shows. Recently, the Oklahoma State Senate Historical Preservation Fund commissioned her to create a 5-foot-by-7-foot painting of Arcadia's round barn which will join a 5-foot-by-7-foot painting by the artist already hanging in the Capitol. Additionally, she participates in Western Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming and the CM Russell Art Auction and Masters in Miniature at the CM Russell Museum in Great Falls, Montana. Recently, Linda was invited to show three paintings at the new Collector's Reserve Show at the Gilcrease Museum. The artist has been featured in Southwest Art and Western Art Collector magazines.

The artist's style has been described as a combination of realism and impressionism. Her love and reverence for the land inspires her to record the countryside and the vanishing wilderness of this country. Linda comments, "My desire is to paint a landscape reflecting my love for nature. I want the viewer to feel my emotion and inspiration which led me to paint the scene."
