Otters As Inspiration with Linda Hansen
My guest today grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, and moved to Largo, Florida, seven years ago, where she currently lives. She took art classes in high school but couldn’t follow her passion for art until she retired. She jokes that she is going to be the next Grandma Moses. There is a retention pond next to her home in Florida, and of course, there are the expected frogs and turtles, but the biggest surprise and joy is ‘their’ otter, whom they have named Otto. It is because of Otto that a good friend and neighbor urged my guest to write a book. She realized she could start a new journey by combining her love of painting with another new adventure in life... writing. She has written and illustrated her first children’s picture book, Otto the Otter, A Big Surprise. Welcome to Authors Over 50, Linda Hansen.

About The Author: Linda Hansen grew up in St. Louis and currently lives in Florida. She works in watercolor and acrylics. Her style is often filled with bold color and though her work is not abstract, it is often thought of as being like the work done by the Fauve artists of Paris. Linda’s work background is diverse but for 25 years she was the Executive Director of a non-profit. During this time Linda created a book for the non-profit called Beauty Is… It is a book about self-esteem. Urged to attempt a new journey by a good friend and neighbor, Linda realized she could combine her love of painting with another new adventure in life. That is when Linda decided to write and illustrate her first children’s picture book, Otto the Otter, A Big Surprise. Linda has a lifelong love for animals. Currently, Linda and her husband own two dogs, ‘our girls’. Since moving to Florida, Linda has helped save a great grey heron, an anhinga, a snowy egret, and a grackle nestling. Recently, they rescued a lost dog and found him a loving home.
