About the Artist...
Like 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 oil paintings reflect  love, romance, adventure and intrigue. They invite the viewer to step into her lexicon of a life lived passionately.

After a childhood of sports, dance and Sunday School, she entered college aiming to become a nurse. But fate had other plans. Whilst working in a medical office during her junior year, she was offered a modeling deal. It was during this time she began to teach herself to draw and paint. She also realized that the industry of "looks and perfection" could not hold her interest and she desired to do something more meaningful. She decided to take a management position at a Native American gallery and began traveling periodically to the Southwest. The land and the people changed her forever. She worked alone in her studio for years and found her true home among painters, writers and musicians.

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.
When she's not painting, you can find her playing piano, guitar and singing in churches.

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.

May your life be filled with real passion, color and focus,
