began as a child. She was convinced that she could draw and color
a world of her making and it would be real not imaginary. Something
inside told her that she could travel to ancient sites in
Mexico and the Amazon or Native American places in New Mexico.
Magic seemed even more real to her when at ten her father moved
the family to live in Argentina for several years.
After finishing Boston University School of Arts with a BA and
MFA Linda began her professional, artistic development intertwined
with spiritual studies. Mythic and mystic themes inspired by primitive
art, and the art of Indian miniatures contrasted with vitality
of abstract expressions of de Kooning, Pollack and Kline. . Linda
traveled to her dreamed places: Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama
and Honduras. Eventually moving to Ipswich, where she developed
a unique series of paintings, integrating the rigors of the minimalist
reduction with the elements of nature. These canvasses actually
had Crane's Beach sand infused with color applied in layers working
to choreograph nature's movement. While in Ipswich, she was an
active member of Early Sites Research Society helping in archeological
excavations, including a red paint burial mound of archaic origins.
In 1987, Linda returned to Boston. At this time, she had just
finished several artist books using Xerox and collage. Her next
step into printmaking and works on paper blended the imagery from
the books with new techniques. These new techniques continued
the layerings now an integral part of her development of both
style and theme. Dreams and shamanism are now deeply connected
to all her works. In addition, new themes of social and political
concerns for the earth came with her participation in the artist
group "Artist for Survival". Inspired by Joseph Beuys work as
artist as showman and shaman other new forms, performance art
and installation opened the dimension of direct participation
and collaboration. With the 1998 exhibition,"Somaglitoglin: Art
and mind Physics", a new group formed called Energy Theater providing
an opportunity for multi disciplined artists to engage in energetic
pure expression. Linda organized this group to perform her work
the "Third Initiation".
Linda continues to make prints as well as paint and work with
"Energy Theater". She is currently art consultant for Skipjacks
Restaurant in Boston.
