Patty Forte` Linna - Brier Washington - Watercolor Impressionist Artist

 

Patty Forte' Linna's work illustrates her passion for painting and her love of capturing the simple pleasures of urban life through her vibrant impressionism. She has won both national and international painting awards. In 2003 she was one of 20 national artists commissioned by General Motors to participate in the innovative launching of their new Chevrolet SSR vehicle by painting it against the backdrop of America.

    She recently signed a contract with a large publishing company that will promote prints of her original works internationally." Although I spent many years in marketing, I never let go of my childhood dream of being an artist. When I finally left the corporate world, I could not have anticipated the satisfaction that awaited me.

    Eric Liddell, the great Olympian and subject of the movie, CHARIOTS OF FIRE, was asked why he ran. He stated, 'God made me for a purposed and He made me fast. And when I run I fell his pleasure. ' I can't articulate it any better than to echo him. God made me an artist. And when I paint I feel his pleasure. The fact that people have responded to my work is truly a gift and I hold it with open hands, hopefully communicating His pleasure through my art.'"

    Forte' Linna has participated in many solo art shows up and down the west coast, including a one woman museum show in the EAF museum in Edmonds, WA and at the Sausalito Art Festival. Patty's art works are available as originals, lithographic and giclee prints.
