About Me

Welcome! I'm Linda Metcalf, a professional working Idaho artist and illustrator. I have a B.A. from Boise State University. I work in all mediums including graphite, pen and ink, colored pencil, watercolor, acrylic and oils.

People Portraits

I have illustrated people of all ages, from babies to 100-year olds. I illustrated the cover art and interior portraits for the book “Idaho 100”, published for the Idaho Centennial. It features the life stories and portraits of Idaho’s centenarians. While it is definitely challenging in our increasingly technological society, I enjoy capturing a sense of the individuality of the human spirit.

Pet Portraits

I have completed many commissioned portraits in a variety of media. The illustrations have mostly been of dogs and cats, but I also have done horses, birds, gerbils, a turtle and one tarantula.

Home Illustrations

A home illustration is an unusual and unique gift. Your illustration would look fantastic on greeting cards, mugs, Christmas cards and many other items. They also make the perfect housewarming or realtor gift.
