Drawing is a wonderful form of expression. Pastels combine drawing with a pure pigment method of painting without a brush. While Linda also uses watercolor on paper, acrylic on canvas, graphite and pen and ink on paper, she loves pastels the most. Linda says making art is just an immersion in joy. Painting en plein air is even better: to experience the temperature , breezes, sounds, sights, and emotions of the scene in real time on location makes a painting most personal.
Linda earned her degree in interior design from MSU, and it has been her profession since 1970. This being 2020...that is 50 years in a career she has loved. Now, it is time to paint full time! She has studied with nationally known professional pastel artists for nearly two decades to develop her own style and learn many techniques.
