“Love me, love my dog.”
Born in Germany and raised outside of Washington, D.C., Linda Beers-Buie grew up in a household full of terriers. Since the age of three, the family raised and bred Skye Terriers and one Cairn Terrier.
During high school, Linda earned several national awards and local recognition for her pen-and-ink illustrations and commercial work in silkscreen. She attended The Corcoran Art School and The Maryland Institute of Art Penland School of Crafts, and she graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts.
A lifelong animal lover, Linda married and raised two children, two terrier-poodle mutts, three Calico cats, and, most recently, two wild Welsh Terriers. The progression from pen-and-ink illustration to oil painting came soon after.
