The butterfly is only beautiful because the caterpillar is brave.


“My first love is art and I see a lot of things in an artistic way.”

Robert Carlyle

“The butterfly is only beautiful because the caterpillar is brave“ (T.M.T).

And that is why just a couple of years ago, at the age of 33, German mixed media artist Linda Bäppler decided to have the courage to turn back to her very first love: art. With no kind of any artistic training, she has always been a creative spirit, driven by emotions, experiences and feelings that cannot be put into words. “Those who make art, don´t need a therapist”, she says. Her style is dark but also very colorful. Messy, but graceful, always combining darkness and pain with beauty and happiness. Her paintings often show portraits of women and are inspired by artistic photography. Being a versatile person, she finds it hard to settle for a certain style, but it seems that she has now found her own very unique style, combining scribbling technique with acrylic painting (though paint brushes are rarely used). When Linda Bäppler paints, she allows herself to be led by the music that she listens to while she is painting. Most of the time, she names her works after the songs that she listened to while she was painting, reflecting her current emotional state. All of Linda Bäppler´s works are originals.
