Linda has been a potter and calligrapher as well as a painter. Her formal training includes a BA in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking from Portland State University. She learned to love painting there, and found it doesn't compare to anything else in her life. When she's painting, she's working on problems of expression and of communication. She is also constantly aware of light and its effects. Evaluating several times during the process of a painting - asking herself what is strong, what is working or not, what needs her attention next -- she often scrubs out areas or just paints over areas if they aren't working well. She also works on 2 or 3 paintings at once, because they may need time to dry, and there are different things going on in each painting that influence the others.

"I paint still life with oil on panels - using various techniques to achieve the surface I desire, and the mood I seek to communicate. The consideration of light and dark translates to geometry in depth, the form taking shape as I work. The composition also is developing, asking me questions, posing possibilities. Fascinated by the play of light and dark on objects found in my house, paintings are assembled. The objects become characters in a quiet narrative. They converse with one another and the viewer's attention is drawn in to the drama of value, color, texture and form. Glass is especially enigmatic as it reflects light and distorts the forms of objects which are within its walls. My desire is to engage the viewer's imagination in some way as they consider the grouping shown."
