About the Artist

Linda Schapper
The fabric of Linda Schapper’s life reflects her diverse experiences, as do the richly colored tapestries and primitive paintings she creates. The large 15’ tapestries hich adorn the main rotunda of the Orange County Courthouse focus on topics such as “Communities”, “Citrus”, “Education”, and “Judicial”, and are a combination of techniques - hand embroidery, applique and quilting . Her acrylic paintings depict Orange County history and are created from archival photos of actual events overlaid by her own interpretations. Schapper’s work hangs in many public buildings and places of worship. Her tapestry “The Family of Christ” was chosen to serve as the backdrop for a mass Pope John Paul II celebrated in New York’s Central Park in the mid-1990s. Ms. Schapper resides in Orlando.
