Born in Los Angeles California, Linda Lamore began painting at the age of eleven. Her early influences were her mother, an artist, and her father, an architect, whose passion for the Bauhaus style and Modern Art inspired her love of abstraction. “Painting has always been something I just had to do, a need, a compulsion.” She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from San Diego State University in 1995, where she majored in painting and minored in sculpture. She went on to receive her teaching credential and taught art, 3-D design and ceramics for six years. Her longing to produce art full time, and a desire to slow down and feel connected to a community, led her to Ashland, OR.
Taking a break from her color fields and using a palette knife, Linda Lamore is exploring the world of curves. Inspired by her love of botanical gardens, Linda hints at foliage as she paints swooping curves and blended colors, giving each painting an organic feel that is ready to come to life.
