After a career in public and private sectors, Linda turned her energy to painting for the next chapter of life.  Today she is an experimental artist working in acrylics and collage, seeking visual form for ideas, imagination, spirit, and intuition.  When she paints, she uses texture, layers and imprinting while keeping mindful of her theme, seeking to create artwork that both veils and reveals. Building on a background in traditional watercolor, portraiture in oils, and Chinese landscape painting, she now pursues new directions thanks to the ever-expanding array of innovative art products.  From time to time, watercolor paintings based on travel appear in her repertoire.

She has taught numerous classes on acrylic mediums and collage, encouraging others to explore the artistic possibilities of these flexible and exciting methods and materials.

Linda is a member of Potomac Valley Watercolorists,  the Arlington Artists Alliance, and the International Society of Experimental Artists.
