Linda Weil is a professional artist with over 30 years experience in fine drawing and illustration. Beginning with a career as an artist/illustrator for a variety of top Australian national magazines, she now exhibits her work in a diverse number of galleries and exhibitions throughout Australia.
Her engaging and detailed drawings have won numerous awards; previous Australian Geographic art calendars have featured a selection of Weil's award-winning drawings. She has authored and illustrated How to Draw Lifelike Animals and co-authored The Art of Drawing Animals for the international art publisher, Walter Foster.
More recently, as Weil explored presenting her work in solo exhibitions, she has branched out in her art practice. Now, the world is a clockwork construct as seen through the eye of Linda Weil’s drawings.
Using the simplest and most common drawing implement, the graphite pencil, her freehand yet exacting and precise drawings explore natural and everyday objects often with a mechanical bent. A rich, expressive and exhaustive medium, Weil uses the humble graphite pencil (with touches of colour here and there) to explore a vast range of effects in her works. Needle sharp contour lines to soft velvety depths of shading allow her to travel the boundaries between realism and fantasy, creating her own special mechanistic reality.
