Photographying Nature makes my heart sing! Linda Roy Walls is an Eastern Shore of Maryland photographer specializing in subjects on canvas metal, and wood featuring natural life and light. Linda focuses on weather, wildlife, and water and admits an added fascination for photographing local people, especially those who “live in the moment and look like it.” Her desire for chronicaling local wildlife, landscapes and people is greatest on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where Linda's roots are deeply planted. Linda was born in Talbot County, Maryland and grew up on the Eastern Shore like many of her ancestors, but traveled to other states and countries due to having a father who was a career officer in the United States Army. An important aspect of Linda’s visual art form is the local back story that typically accompanies each photo.

Linda developed her early interest in photography while serving as editor and photographer for her high school and college newspapers in the 70’s. Later she majored in photojournalism at the University of Maryland, but then switched her study concentration to psychology when she attended Washington College in Chestertown.

Selected images on canvas and metal are now on display at Linda's gallery (SeeWorthy) located at 308 Park Row in Chestertown, Maryland.
