Artist Bio:
Linda Haworth is a professional artist living in Hillsboro, Oregon. She feels her Western American rancher, farmer, mining engineer heritage shaped her as an individual and as an artist. Her great grandparents homesteaded along the SnaImage of Father Time Linda Haworthke and Palouse Rivers in Washington State. After graduating from WSU, her parents left the Northwest to follow their careers living in Central America, above the tree line in the Peruvian Andes, and in the Southern Arizona ranch lands where she was born near the Mexican border.

She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Northern Arizona University and spent 15 years winning public art commissions, mainly with transportation demonstration projects. After she was selected in a national competition to design the Washington/SE 12th Avenue light rail station in Hillsboro, Oregon, she fell in love with the community and moved to Hillsboro. She founded a gallery, became active in local arts associations and was on the founding steering committee of Tuesday Marketplace. “Working simultaneous contracts in different states, I always felt like I was coming home when seeing the rolling hills of Washington County.”
