The Other Half of the Team
You have met Shalini. Now meet Linda Dawson, the other half of the team. Linda lives in St Petersburg with her husband of 49 years, Pete. (Big whoopie coming soon-the BIG 50!) Linda graduated from the University of Kansas with a BS in Occupational Therapy and received further education at Missouri State University where she became certified in Mathematics Education, grades K through 12. She did not enter the art world until later in life, approximately 12 years ago when she became involved with the Surface Design Guild of Tampa Bay. She does some art quilts and copper and silver wire jewelry, but her love is art cloth. She founded the Art Cloth Alliance (www.artclothalliance.com ) and will be a member of the Art Cloth Network (http://www.artclothnetwork.com/ ) after the meeting in September. Linda's work is influenced by mathematics, esspecially chaos theory and her love of Florida and its delicate ecological balance. Enjoy her works shown below.
