Linda was born in Shreveport and grew up in Natchitoches. She studied art at Northwestern, but became restless before she finished and went on to experience life in Texas, Arkansas, and North Carolina before returning to Louisiana. She enjoys experimenting with different acrylic techniques and often wonders how many dog hairs become trapped in the many layers of paint she uses.
“Emotions play a huge part in my inspiration, as well as nature. I believe that inspiration can come from almost anything and art is most certainly in the eye of the beholder. “

“Bouquet” by Caitlin Lindsay Rose
Caitlin is best known for her freeform circle paintings made of vibrant acrylic brushwork and layered drips on canvas. Motivated by freedom of emotion, she strives to create works of art that can define themselves. “I want my art to speak for itself, so I don’t want to define it with a title. I have pieces that have specific meanings, but some are just created in a spurt of emotion and that’s how I want someone to experience it as well.”
