LINDA PETERSEN  ARTIST STATEMENT

I feel that life is about change, movement, discovery and reward.

Recently, I made a geographical change in my life, moving from the mountains to the coast.  This change brought about a movement from one area of interest in the way I expressed my artwork, to a completely different approach in my creative process.  I discovered that the sea gave me the gift of seeing from the inside out.

Each day brought new rewards – jewels coming from the sky and the sea.  I was compelled to interpret these images, embrace what I saw and put them on aluminum and wood using acrylic paint.

To me, the rewards were magical.  The results were exactly as I had hope they would be, giving each piece the luminous quality I was searching to achieve.

For me, the move to the sea gave me the gift of seeing – with my heart.
