Her Art | Colorful, abstract ceramic sculptures
Arkansas Inspiration | Nature. “I love the kudzu landscapes that transform forests into new and unrecognizable places.”
Creative Must-Haves | “My studio has a west-facing window with a view of the sunset. During the summer, I love being able to see the sun peek through branches and leaves, creating ombré abstract shapes. It’s visually inspiring and allows me to be present in the moment.”
Favorite Artists | Ceramicist Kenneth Price. “His soft and voluminous forms create intimate moments where you get lost in texture and color. I have also been in love with Niki de Saint Phalle’s mosaics. In the 1970s, she created a sculpture park outside of Tuscany where she magically transformed groves, fields, and farmland into a fantastical landscape full of creatures and habitats.”
On Exhibit | One of Linda’s pieces is on exhibit in This Present Moment: Crafting a Better World at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. The exhibit, which runs through April 2, 2023, focuses on how artists can start and play into worldly conversations.
