Few artists can excel at many mediums. They may do well at one or two, but to excel at four five, well that is close to being a phenom. Linda Roberts is one of those rare artists. Her journey to such an eclectic and diverse work of art is fascinating and fun.
Monotype Prints: I am fascinated by the world of cultural symbols and icons and the many meanings they possess over the ages. I like to transfer this imagery into a narrative story or a dream-like state.
Symbols give ordinary things a larger dimension and express concepts such as love, fertility, immortality, bebirth, power, hope, joy, courage, and protection. I use animal symbols frequently in my work such as the lion and dragon. Fairytales and folklore have a strong influence on my visual language. My desire is to tell a story or take a journey into a land of fantasy.
