This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted August 2002, is from the artist whose website URL is She lives in Dunham, Quebec.

Linda Hobley's paintings are intended to depict nature in vibrant images that appear to leap from the canvas. The infinite wonders of nature are her subjects. The striking effects of light are her inspiration. She describes her work as visionary realism, going beyond mere depiction to draw out the essential qualities of the subject. Using sharp contrasts of light, colour, shape and texture, the artist strives for the effect of making time stand still so that viewers can appreciate and value the subtleties and ephemeral qualities of the nature that surrounds us. Her hyperrealist studies symbolize the fragility of nature and life and become metaphors for the human experience.

Hobley lives with her husband, Ken Tannahill, in Dunham, in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, an area known for its vineyards, apple orchards, and beautiful scenery, which provide her with a constant source of inspiration. While raising their two daughters, Jennifer and Kerry, she studied at Montreal's Concordia University, earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1994. Since then she has pursued her love of painting full time.

She is involved in the promotion of art in her community where she assists in the operation of the Dunham Art Centre. Hobley is a member of the Society of Canadian Artists (SCA), a national organization of professional artists, and the Women's Art Society of Montreal, an organization founded in 1894.

For three consecutive years, she was selected by the Government of Canada Farm Credit Corporation (FCC) as a featured artist in their annual calendar, and in 2000 was commissioned by the FCC to do two paintings representing Quebec agriculture, one of which is on the cover of their 2001 calendar. Her work has also been featured in Parkhurst Exchange and the Bevelled Edge magazines, and the American publication Lepidopterist News.

In the millennium year, 2000, Hobley's work has been recognized internationally. In December 2000, her painting October Flames appeared in International Artist magazine's Master Painters of the World: Canada Showcase. The painting Oh Canada was selected as a Canadian semi-finalist in the Winsor and Newton Millennium Painting Competition, which drew 22,000 entries worldwide.

Closer to home, her painting "Life Cycles/Les cycles de la vie" won second prize at the Musée d'Art de Mont-Saint Hilaire's "Portes Ouvertes 1997". Along with four other paintings, "Life Cycles" has been issued as a limited edition print, and is available in numerous print galleries across Canada.
