About the Artist...
Frida and De Lempicka who came before her, Linda Marie is adding a hint
of femininity and glamour to an historically male dominated profession.
When asked how she classifies her work, Linda Marie says," I call it art
for the romantic heart. My desire is that you will see and feel both
passion and paint". Her drawings and oil work reflect love, romance,
adventure and intrigue. They invite the viewer to step into her lexicon
of a life lived passionately.
Marie's paintings and prints are in private collections throughout the
US and abroad. She draws inspiration from the colorful San Francisco bay
area, the peaceful Napa Valley and those she has met on her travels. She
entered college to study nursing while simultaneously working in a
medical office. However, by her third year fate intervened and she was
discovered for modeling and commercials..
during this time she began to quietly sit and teach herself to draw and
paint. She also accepted a position in a busy San Francisco art gallery.
This would prove to be one of the biggest learning experiences on her
journey as it was frequented by people from around the world and
characters from all walks of life.
However, she never imagined her childhood of competition sports and
dance would one day become the source of strength and discipline
required to live the life of a full time artist and mom. Linda feels
people are at their best when allowing themselves to walk hand in hand
with God and nature and gracefully weather the inevitable storms. She
lives her life inspiring others with her creativity and bringing
awareness to the need of mentors for children.
When she's not painting, cooking and taking care of her family, she
plays piano, studies kung fu and enjoys archaeological documentaries,
Note from the Artist:
I am deeply touched by humans, their behavior and the "why" that puts us
all in the circumstances life's poker table deals us. Equally, I am
moved by the connection of head, hand, eye and soul and when firing on
all fours-the magic we have the ability to create. I offer a deep thank
you to those who have supported me by purchasing my artwork as well as
those just stopping by for a look.
