Linda De Keuster known as Lin Custodis lives and works in Hemiksem near Antwerp, Belgium. (1957)

Where she initially painted in a rather classical way, her style is slowly evolving to a more romantic realism. This soft romantic touch is mainly reflected in her last work.

Linda masters a wide range of topics but is mainly specialized in the painting of portraits. Also still life paintings with flowers, especially English roses, are among her favorites. In addition, also animals are multiple times captured by her brush on canvas.

Besides working with oil painting on canvas or wood panel, portraits can also be realized using acryl, pastel  or drybrush technique.

A portrait is always based on pictures taken in her own studio and if possible, but not necessary, this can be supplemented by a number of posing sessions.
