Linda Anderson was born and still lives in Wisconsin. Her interest in photography began in the 1960's when her father gave her a camera for her 8th birthday. Since that time, a camera seldom was out of reach. A "water-baby" at an early age, her summer job as a Sun Prairie life guard & swim instructor during her teen years intensified her love of water. As a young adult she enhanced her photography "hobby" by attending photography courses and seminars in Madison. She moved with her family to the shores of Lake Michigan in Port Washington in 1990. Encouraged by husband Neil, Linda left her 20 year career as a design engineer to expand her love of photographing nature into a profession. Combining the attention to detail from her engineering background with her artistic point of view and photographic skills, Linda ventured into a new career that she considers "the best decision of my life". Established in 2004, Anderson Photo Works fine art originals soon became a hometown & art show favorite. Linda continues her growth in photography by attending several seminars annually and continually upgrades her equipment to offer the highest quality imagery. Her photos have appeared in Lighthouse Digest Magazine, Country Living Magazine, Wisconsin's travel book - Treasures of Wisconsin, Port Washington's advertising billboard, special events advertising posters, a retail building sign and other commercial products.
"At a young age I valued the treasure that photography could preserve forever the places, events and beauty that filled my life. Taking pictures has always brought me joy. One single picture can rekindle an emotion from years past. It provides a constant source of reflection of the beauty that was once viewed."
"Living on Lake Michigan and having the daily exposure to the wealth of beauty in and around our Great Lakes brings me closer to nature and the places I love. Whether it is the excitement of a Tall Ship, the architecture and history of a lighthouse, the tranquility of a harbor sunset, the power of a waterfall or looking eye-to-eye with an animal in the wild, all touch our hearts in a special way. It brings me great pleasure to capture that moment in time for myself, and now, to share with others."
