Linda Lovisa – Artist Statement
I love the outdoors. My paintings are a visual journal of my adventures. They reflect the places I have been and beauty I have seen. I am drawn by the light, colour and movement in the subjects and scenes I choose. I have been creating for as long as I can remember. My hope is that my art will inspire others to want to create as well.
