Artist - Illustrator - Photographer Fine Artwork and Photography with an emphasis on light and line and color.
Mary Melinda is my given name but most folks call me Linda. Currently, I live in Northeastern South Carolina but originally I was born and raised in the Piedmont region of Virginia. Soft pastel is my preferred medium to work with but I also enjoy photography and creating graphic artwork.
Living in areas with an abundance of natural charm, inspiration has come to me from the lovely sights of the black water rivers and wetlands of South Carolina to my memories of the Blue Ridge Mountains of my youth. Wildlife and pets also make wonderful subjects for my work as well as growing things from my own garden. All in all, I would have to say that the natural world is my greatest muse.
I majored in art many years ago at Lynchburg College in Virginia. It has only been in the past decade or so have I begun to add with consistency to my body of work and to present that work for sale. My wish is that the viewer will find something familiar, a bit of soulful identification with a piece, to say ‘yes, I understand.’
Being able to offer my work for sale in the form of prints allows me to more readily share my pastels and graphics, as well as photographs with a much wider audience. I hope to increase my works in traditional pastel and drawing by creating at least one work in those types of media for each week of the year.
