ART on the Square Gallery

Associate Artist

Linda Bates

“I am a self-taught artist, I have been drawing and painting for over 20 years. Living now by the South Carolina coast and growing up near the New England coast has inspired my sea life paintings.  I love painting sea life and folk-lore mermaids.

I also have a love of horses and have done many equestrian paintings. I have recently started painting carousels, it has allowed me to experiment with color more and add a little more character to my horses.

My paintings are done in acrylic paint, I try not to limit my color palette and love experimenting with different color combinations.”
