Linda Smith, a Dallas native, studied art and theater at UNT while completing her degree in Education.
She has been creating art all her adult life including paintings, ceramics, pottery, and porcelain dolls for Neiman Marcus.
Up until a few years ago, She described herself as a “realistic painter” but after a very exciting workshop with contemporary artist, Stephen Kilborn in Taos NM, she was hooked on abstract painting. Linda has had the opportunity to study with other abstract artists, including Carol Nelson, Jane Jones, Jo Moncrief, and Maureen Brouillette, and continues to develop her abstract techniques and skills.
Her work is held in private collections in Texas and New Mexico. She has exhibited in Art 7 Gallery, VAST juried “125 Mile Show” 2015 and 2016, Gallery 3, Art in the Atrium, Gallery 8680, Richardson Civic Art Society shows, Ft Worth Community Art Assoc. “9×12 Show”, The Oxide Gallery, Artist Showplace, Methodist Richardson Medical Center, Red River NM “Aspencade”, Eagle Nest “Art Festival”, and Cuchara CO Annual Art Show.
“I am a contemporary mixed media artist.
My abstracts usually depict the incredible beauty and often the simplicity of nature and are full of textures and vibrant colors.
Skies, mountains, oceans, canyons, trees, and rocks all inspire me and get my creative juices flowing. My goal is to create paintings that offer the “feeling” of nature rather than a realistic copy. I love the fact that abstract art provides everyone the opportunity to use their imagination and participate in the creative process as they view my art.
For me, the process of creating a new abstract painting is like going on an amazing trip. I gather up everything I think I might need, find a journey that will be exciting and educational, and determine that I’ll not know exactly where I will end up but will always enjoy the ride.”
