Linda Dove Pierson is a local artist who grew up in New York City. It was there she first studied art surrounded by inspiring museums. Her work can be found in private collections across the country and abroad. Linda's work is highly stylized, always intuitive and never planned ahead. She puts her trust in her process and just lets it happen. Her whimsical collages are done with acrylics, papers, pastels and pencils. The overabundance of our times has inspired her to re-purpose and re-imagine discarded objects. She hopes to elicit an emotional response from viewers through her paintings.
