Linda Nearon, Professional Artist at Linda Nearon Art Studio, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements and leadership in oil painting.
Specialized in painting florals and landscapes, Ms. Nearon is a professional artist working out of her own studio, Linda Nearon Art Studio, since 2004, having previously taught high school history. Prior to the start of her career, she pursued a formal education at the University of Utah, where she attained a Bachelor of Science in history and political science with an education credential in 1964. She then completed graduate work at San Jose State University. Active with Freedom of Religion, Ms. Nearon was featured in the “Best of World Wide Landscape Artists” by Kennedy Publishing in 2011 and “The Transience of Light,” written by Hebe Brooks for the National Oil Painters of America in 2013. In 2013, she exhibited her work in the Oil Painters of America’s Juried Salon Show of Traditional Oils and the Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art. She has also shown her paintings at the Annual Fine Art Competition and Exhibition of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society from 2013 to 2014.
A signature member of the National Oil and Acrylic Painters’ Society, as well as a member of the Oil Painters of America, Ms. Nearon’s greatest award that she received was the Excellence Award from the National Oil Painters of America for her painting “Heavenly Orchards.” That was a painting she was really drawn to and she took her own photos. She loved making it, as it is a very challenging and prestigious award to win. The recipient of numerous local awards, Ms. Nearon was given the Merit Award for Landscape by the International Salon of Greenhouse in 2008.
Ms. Nearon had so much experience with painting to the point where she thought she had the time and just went all out. She wanted to refine her work to become the best artist she could be. Moving forward, Ms. Nearon would like to perfect her portraiture, but she still feels her strength is in the florals and she would like to even perfect that further than what she has done. She tries to paint three to four hours a day no matter how busy she is.
