Linda Samuels E-Patterns

I've been painting since the mid 90's when I was lucky enough to stay home after the birth of my youngest daughter.  I remember money being tight back then and decided to make all my Christmas presents one year.  I popped into a ceramics shop to purchase an electrical cord and saw a bunch of women sitting around a table, painting ceramic pieces, giggling and having a great time.  I thought how I would love to join them! So I signed up for the class and started painting! I discovered tole painting soon after and found my true passion.  I took a couple of classes to get the basics, then off to buy books and paints!  I continued to take classes to learn different techniques and how to use various mediums.  I'm notorious for taking a walk around our garage for items that I can lay my brushes on!  Nothing is safe! :)
I started designing in 2012 and I had my first pattern published through PaintWorks magazine and have been having fun ever since!  Living in Eastern Ontario, Canada, I am fortunate to enjoy all four seasons and my love for autumn and winter pretty much dictates what my designs are all about.  I love the whimsical feel of snowmen with swirling snowflakes, and ghostly Halloween patterns are also a true favorite!  You will find me in my little studio, painting winter scenes all through the year! :)
Thank you for taking time to read about me and I hope you enjoy my patterns as much as I have enjoyed designing them for you!  Should you have any questions, I'm always open to emails and will be happy to help in any way that I can!  You can reach me at the_painting_house@yahoo.ca
