Linda Powell, Villa Rica Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement Linda is a high school special services teacher in the Atlanta area. She holds a B.S. in Special Education, a M.Ed. in Learning Disabilities and an Ed.S. in Media and Instructional Technology. Linda is a self taught artist and works in acrylics, pastels, gouache, watercolors, mixed media, photography, and pencil drawings, painting contemporary modern abstracts, landscapes and still lifes. Her art reflects her passion for life with a vibrant use of color.
Linda has been drawing all of her life but only recently picked up a brush and began painting. She attributes her knowledge and success in painting to her daughter-in-law, Melissa, granddaughter to the famous artist, Pat Ford; her son, James, an artist and musician; her daughter, Lea Anne, an artist and race car driver; Ken C., teacher and artist; and, to her dear friend, Gerard Mc., a musician and co teacher, her “greatest critic and supporter” of her artwork!
Linda is a member of EBSQ, Carrollton Arts Guild, Douglasville Arts Guild and South Cobb Arts Alliance. She has recently shown her art in the New York City, Douglasville, Austell and Carrollton, Georgia areas and was recently commissioned by the Emory Winship Cancer Center in Atlanta, Georgia for a painting. She has just completed a book cover for the author of the book Garrotte and was recently awarded the “People’s Choice Award” at the SCAA World of Imagination juried art show. Linda is also co-artist of the mural painting, “Story Corner”, at the Lithia Springs Library, Lithia Springs, Georgia.
Linda is also a single parent and breast cancer survivor, which she believes is all the more reason to be “doing what she loves doing most of all, painting”.
“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life”.
