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, acrylic, graphite, and pen, and ink, she loves pastels the most. Linda says making art is just an immersion in fun.
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. She has studied with nationally known professional pastel artists for two decades to develop her own style and learn many techniques. Linda relishes her time outside, lost in her art.
