Her vision is to re-connect people with the outdoors, to bring awareness of Florida’s beauty as well as shedding light onto its hardships. The purpose of her art is to encourage conservation. Linda has formed a special bond with some of the local wildlife and is also known as “the otter whisperer”. She volunteers as a board member of Rainbow River Conservation, is part of the Florida Springs Council Communication Advisory Board and donates to non-profit organizations on a regular basis. www.lindawphotography.comSocial Media: @lindawphotography  Please subscribe!
