I am currently working on a new series about immigration and refugees as well as another incarnation of Social Structure.

Linda studied art at the University of Colorado and then had a family and a job that consumed most of her time for 35 years. She has been fortunate to turn back to her artwork full time for the last four years. She shows locally, regionally and nationally. She enjoys supporting the art community in her hometown by participating in Artwalk, Longmont Studio Tour and other local events. She installed 150 ceramic birds at the Longmont Museum as a part of her Capistrano series and facilitated a collaborative project on the same topic at the Salud Medical Clinic in Longmont.
