“Whether you succeed or not is irrelevant, there is no such thing.
Making your unknown known is the important thing.” ~Georgia O’Keeffe
Linda comes from a long line of artists and knew very early on that she would live her life as an artist. During her studies at Parson's School of Design, she was swept up into the world of scenic painting and set design for the fast-paced music & television industries. She spent the next 16 years collaborating with some of the biggest names in the industry as a set designer, prop stylist, and scenic painter. After the birth of her son (named after Jackson Pollack) she transitioned to a freelance career in visual merchandising and graphic design. In 2012, Linda successfully made the leap to dedicate her self completely to her painting.
Linda’s work pays homage to nature through the eyes of color and expression. Mountains, moons, clouds, rain, and bubbles are recurring muses that speak to a dance between the ephemeral and the eternal, the evanescent and the infinite. Painting rather quickly and in many layers – Linda employs chance by watering down her paints to allow for flow and unpredictability. Drips, smears, splotches, bleeds, and other happy accidents are embraced and incorporated to reflect nature's unpredictable exactness. Allowing the medium to speak for itself, Linda evokes a feeling of unbridled expression, pure freedom and unapologetic happiness.
Linda’s greatest influences include painters, Mom and Dad, Modigliani, Jackson Pollack, Gerard Richter, Helen Frakenthaler, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Georgia O’Keefe.
A proud member of Firing Circuits Studios, an artist community in Norwalk, CT; Linda’s work is sold locally at Dovecote-Westport and nationally on Saatchi Online.
