Linda Hendry has been drawing for as long as she can remember. Some of her earliest works can still be found on the underside of her parent’s kitchen table – the same table that she and her sister sat at for hours and hours, filling up endless stacks of doodle pads with drawings of make-believe families and their adventures. After high school (of course she doodled in her notebooks!) Linda studied visual communication at The Alberta College of Art and Design, then moved to Toronto where she was offered the opportunity to illustrate a children’s book called ‘The Queen Who Stole The Sky’. The book was a finalist for the 1986 Canada Council Illustration award, which certainly helped to get her career rolling. Over 60 books later, Linda still loves to draw but has taken time off from illustrating to explore painting with acrylics and oils or try her hand at simple print-making techniques.
