    Meet the Artist

    Linda is a Dutch painter, with a fine arts background from the Rietveld Academy and later the Amsterdam University of the Arts. Her projects have taken her around the world, from Spain to Czech Republic, and her travels have inspired her to now welcome the world into her own studio. One of her project includes painting every person from the 1973 Worldpress Photobook in a modern day context. As an art teacher, she is especially good at guiding people to develop their own process, removing creative blocks, and teaching what she calls “the language of art.” To her, painting and other art forms are a means of communication that hold the power to reach far beyond spoken words... no wonder her works’ central themes are inner power and positivity!
