ARTISTS' COOPERATIVE GALLERY OF WESTERLY
Linda is a Rhode Islander who loves the awesome power of the sea crashing against the rocky coastline. Intrigued by its ever changing colorations and textures created by the weather patterns that we have here in New England.
A Rhode Islander who has attended workshops in all media with local New England artists, and particularly was inspired and encouraged to pursue her own approach to art by Barbara Besson Delannoy, an award winning watercolorist with a studio and gallery in Wickford, RI. Linda is grateful to have known her and been mentored by her, it was a life changing event.
She enjoys working in acrylics and collage, both as a water media on paper and also using it much like oil on canvas and board. A love of texture and dimension is evident in her use of paper and mixed media to create depth and interest in her work. Finding compositions in everyday things and in nature and abstracting them into works of art, particularly inspired early on by the crashing surf at Beavertail in Jamestown and it remains her favorite source of inspiration.
Linda has received many awards for her collaged seascapes and abstracts. Her work is in private and corporate collections in New England, New York, North Carolina and Virginia, and she is currently an artist member of Artists Cooperative Gallery of Westerly, South County Art Assoc., Wickford Art Assoc., and an elected artist member of Mystic Museum of Art.
