Linda is a native Floridian and a graduate from the University of Florida. She has always had a great love for her state and its natural beauty which has had a great impact on her photography. In her travels around the world and “her own back yard”, she has seen the beauty of landscape change dramatically from year to year. She felt compelled to capture the life and landscape around her.
After retiring from the medical field in 2011, she attended the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Missoula, Montana, that same year. Since 2007, she has lived full time on the 30a corridor on the western Gulf coast of Florida. This location provides endless photo opportunities of all the beauty of the Emerald Coast for her art and patrons. She possesses a great love of nature and street photography wherever she is – at any given time and place.
What Linda would like to share about her art:
I am a photographer. I photograph nature, wildlife, and street photography wherever my travels take me. I capture images that resonate within me, that define the beauty, uniqueness and the culture of where I am.
A few years ago, I started experimenting utilizing other mediums with my photography. I created a process using shard glass and resin which further enhanced the energy and dimension of selected pieces. After a photo shoot and then editing my work, I select the images that I feel will provide the detail needed for the shard glass and resin. These pieces are then sent to a professional lab to be stretched on museum quality canvas. After that comes the extensive shard glass and resin process. Each piece is designed based on my memory of the scene and the emotions I felt at the time.
I am pleased to share my work with you and hope that you, too, find something that “strikes a chord” about the beauty of the world around us.
The Featured Artist Reception at the Gateway Art Gallery was on Friday, June 3 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
