Painting and drawing in a variety of mediums has been a life-long passion for Linda. Whether it be charcoal, pastel, acrylic or oil, she is inspired by the medium's challenges, and allows the medium to take her work in a variety of directions. This results in a body of work that, without reading her signature, one might be convinced was done by seperate individuals.

The exception to this is Smith's "Appalachian Awareness" series, where she combines media to 
create montages that are clearly indentifiable and uniquely hers. In these works, Linda draws from her 
rural southwestern Virginia background to portray the characters and personalities that were the tapestry of her childhood. She describes herself as having one foot in the past and one foot in the present. These art works have won Peoples Choice awards, First, and Second Place at New River Community College 
in Dublin, Va.

In 1990, she partnered with Principal Lois Hinkle of Elliston-Lafayette Elementary School and IBM and painted a "Writing to Read" mural with her son Luke. Film crews from IBM came to the school and shot a documentary entitled, "Virginia and IBM-Partners in Education".

Linda also enjoys portrait work with pastels and charcoals. Her art can be found in corporate and 
private collections in the U.S. and Canada.
