Linda Carole Sheets (1955-2018)

Linda Sheets was born in Northern Indiana to a plumber and a nurse and created art of one kind or another for most of her life. The first of her family to attend college, she quit art school after two years to become a plumber. This led to a 25-year career as a contractor and plumber before retiring in 2003 to return to her one great love, making art. She licensed six of her designs in 2010 for use in beginner kits to the company that produces the scratchboard product that she used. Scratchboard, developed in the early twentieth century, primarily for use in graphic illustrating, has re-emerged as a viable fine art medium. The product is a rigid board coated with white kaolin clay, sprayed with black ink and scratched and cut with sharp tools to create an image that sometimes resembles a woodcut or etching. In 2012 she created two illustrated books of rescued animals and their stories, Dog Scratchin’ and Cat Scratchin’.
