Linda Brant
Watercolor Artist / Sculptor


Linda Brant is a watercolor artist and sculptor from Orlando, FL. She holds a doctoral degree in Psychology, working part-time at the University of Central Florida and part-time as an independent artist.

 

Linda has been creating art since she was a child. Many of the concepts behind her current work are inspired by literature and expressed through motifs found in the natural world. Somerset Maugham, Hermann Hesse, Jack Kerouac and Carlos Castaneda are among her favorite writers. Crushed rocks, dried leaves, insects, tree bark, glass fragments and spider webs have all been sources of inspiration to her. She uses interesting ideas, feelings, experiences - even dreams - as a starting point for creating imaginative and expressive 2-D and 3-D images.

 

Most of Linda's paintings are done in watercolor on Arches 300 lb. paper. Her technique involves the application of numerous layers of watercolor followed by ink pen, charcoal, soft pastel or colored pencil to accent.

 

Linda has exhibited her work at numerous gallery shows in Central Florida including the Red Chair Affair (2006), Crealde School of Art Juried Student Show (2007), Best of Florida Artist's Registry Annual Show (2007), Osceola Center for the Arts Annual Juried Show (2007) and Orlando Museum of Art's 1st Thursdays Program (2005-2008). She has regularly exhibited in regional outdoor art festivals including the Maitland Rotary Art Festival, Orlando's Fiesta in the Park, Deland Fall Art Festival, Santa Fe Community College Spring Arts Festival, Volvo Mayfaire by the Lake and Gainesville's Annual Downtown Festival and Art Show.

 

Original works and limited edition giclee reproductions are available for purchase on Linda's website: www.oriannaarts.com
