Linda Brown

Linda Brown

A Southern California native, Linda grew up with equal passions for nature and art. Becoming a professional landscape artist was inevitable. Essentially self-taught in the basics of oil painting, she has been painting most of her life. She has worked relentlessly in the field and studio, as well as study with contemporary masters Ralph Oberg, Matt Smith, and Kathleen Dunphy, to perfect her craft.

This application felt more in harmony with the forms I love to throw, soft and rounded. I have been influenced by hard edges in my other work, but for these pieces, a natural flowing or erupting surface mimicking the natural world seems to be best. I am finding dozens of surface variations that in essence allow me to carve my work in a spontaneous way."
