Linda Cavanaugh Art & Artistry

Linda J. Cavanaugh

Linda J Cavanaugh started painting in 2001, as she was making the transition from Silicon Valley techie to stay-at-home wife and mom. After several years of general still life and landscape painting, she sought out a more demanding challenge, and found it in the form of a series of botanical art & illustration classes offered by the Mary L. Harden School of Botanical Illustration at the San Francisco Botanical Garden. In 2006 she started her first pen and ink class under Ms. Harden’s expert teaching. In 2007 Ms. Cavanaugh had her first exhibition at Alcatraz Island the as part of her Master of Botanical Art certification, and has been exhibiting and selling her botanical artwork throughout the Pacific Northwest ever since. 

Ms. Cavanaugh has participated in multiple exhibits at the Helen Crocker Russell Library of Horticulture in Golden Gate Park, two exhibits at the Conservatory of Flowers, and multiple exhibits at the Marin Cancer Institute and Bolinas Gallery. Her work has been exhibited at the US Army Core of Engineers Bay Model Visiter’s Center during the Sausalito Art Fair, and she has donated paintings to support the Just One Tree Project and the National AIDS Memorial Grove. Ms. Cavanaugh’s recent painting, the beautiful Blue Agave, was part of the Intoxicating Plants exhibit at the UCSF Faculty Alumni House, and was purchased by Mission Bay Hospitals in July, 2014.

She says of her work:

“Botanical art is more than just documenting the flora around me, it is my way of telling the life story of the plant.  I find as much beauty in the spent leaf as in the new bud, and try to convey that beauty to others through my art.”
