Linda Lovisa – Artist’s Statement
I love the outdoors. My paintings are a visual journal of my adventures. They reflect the places I have been and the beauty I have seen. I am drawn by the light, colour, and movement in the subjects and scenes that I have chosen.
I have been creating art since my childhood. My hope is that my art and my teaching will inspire others to create their own works of art.
