February Moore Room Feature Artist

Linda Hildreth


Hi! I’m Linda Hildreth, a new (but permanent) resident of Waldport. My colored pencil works in the Moore Room are just a glimpse of the pieces I’ve done over the last 10 years.

I always use colored paper (Canson MiTientes) and my favorite colored pencils are Prismacolor, which are pretty affordable.

My works nearly always include global co-ordinates (Latitude and Longitude) which began back when I was doing illustrations aboard our sailboat during summers on Lake Michigan.

Most of these pieces are done en Plein Air, or outdoors on-site. The more recent pieces are done from my own photos, or those from friends. I don’t have any fancy technical enlarging gadgets at home, so I use the Grid Method to copy and enlarge photos to draw onto colored paper.

Thank you, Waldport Public Library, for displaying these works.
