Don't Drink Like a Fish Singles...
Linda moved to Florida from Lexington, Kentucky where she was an active member of the arts community, calligrapher, graphic designer, and owner of LK Artworks, an advertising and graphic design business. An award-winning artist, she has created commissioned pieces for scores of clients, some as far away as Japan. The “Don't Drink Like a Fish ®” series for which she holds a U.S. Trademark, continues to evolve with new situations, fish, patterns and themes. She has created over 300 paintings in this series, and the “fish” are now living all over the World.
"I love working in acrylics. The vivid colors one can achieve are inspirational! I do use a layered approach when painting, and most areas of my finished paintings have multiple layers of paint. Many of my new works are mixed media with altered papers and gels. Look for wacky perspectives and riots of color in my works." “I love the free feeling of creating art, and will always lean toward the whimsical, funky style and subject matter that make people feel happy and smile. If I can transport the viewer to a happy world for a few minutes, then I have achieved my goals. I like to think of my paintings as a run through the water sprinkler on a hot summer's day. I believe that the desire to surround oneself with happy art is universal.”
Linda lives in Palm Harbor, Florida. In addition to the funky fish paintings, she has created a realistic Coral Reef Series, and paints large format abstracts, landscapes and mixed media florals
