Linnea Heide Member Since February 2011 Artist Statement I've been an artist / designer / visual communicator in some capacity all my life. I hold a BFA in Fine Art + Graphic Design (1992) and an MFA in Visual Communications (1996). From 1996-2006, I was a 'MADwoMAN' working as an art director in a few advertising agencies, until I finally decided to fly from the corporate cookoo's nest and began freelancing out of my home. Since then, my creative life has been blissfully satisfying. I paint what I feel, and I paint what I feel is missing in the world.
