Linda C Smith Member Since September 2012 Artist Statement Linda C Smith is a fine artist working in mosaic, painting [acrylic], digital art and fine art photography. Linda gained her first appreciation for art as a child watching her grandfather paint. He painted in oils seascapes and California missions in a realistic style and it came as a surprise that Linda chose abstraction and color manipulation as her artistic passion. She studied art in college and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. She has been an artist for most of her adult life and continues to find new ways to explore creative media.
