Linnea is a graduate from the Alberta College of Art & Design with a BFA majoring in Jewellery & Metalsmithing. She is a Canadian Visual Artist, who is at this time painting and using Alberta’s vast mountains and never ending prairie to give her inspiration;
“Love for the unspoken words of nature.”
Linnea's work is in the form of contemporary abstract landscapes and snapshots of details of nature. You can see her work in a variety of different mediums: Watercolour, Acrylic and the ancient and re-emerging medium of encaustic. Encaustic and Watercolour being her primary mediums she works in. She uses the attributes of Encaustic to add complexity within the surface of her paintings to create an illusion of movement, stirring a memory or an emotion for the viewer. Carefully building layers of depth with transitions of slight subtleties, her work changing each time you study it. Natures unseen vibrations and energy. Linnea doesn’t necessarily always ponder what is happening above ground but below, seismic happenings! Reflecting on space, time, relationships, interactions between people and energy. Her intention, to spark personal recollections in the viewer from an unconventional perspective, carefully building layers leaving a translucent history, using depth colour, luminescence, sculptural textures and surface transitions, transitions of slight sodalities. This work will change every time you study it.
“The dance with the paint | molten wax back and forth embarks me
on a journey to the mystery of the 'not knowing.”
Today you'll find Linnea in her studio painting plus teaching Youth Art Classes in the Rockyview district to her young super-fly kids and the youth of Langdon and surrounding areas. Linnea's work can be seen at Galleries within Alberta and a constant showing at juried art Show & Sales.
Linnea's paintings are collected in Calgary, Vancouver, Holland and as far as Dubai.
