Linda McAdams

"I love incorporating the texture and warmth of wood grain with the fluid elements of sand, water and sky in my images. Making sure there is always enough negative space for the grain to play an integral part of the composition."

Linda creates work that straddles the lines between photography, painting, and mixed media. An evolution of years of experimenting and showing her images on different substrates has led her to a style and body of work that is uniquely her own.

Linda creates gel release (pulled) transfers of hand-altered and painted images on wood panels and veneers, treated with translucent oils, pigments and a UV varnish. Each piece is sealed with a heat press that cures the image, pigment, and varnish to the wood.

Linda is a self taught artist and musician who has won numerous art show awards and travels from the Keys to the Hamptons doing fine art shows throughout the year.
