Artist / Author / Fine art photographer
Eccentric and quirky are words often used to describe Linda Finstad and her unique style of art. She not only portrays the outside of her subjects but also gives each one a personality. Sometimes they are sweet sometimes they are sassy. It doesn’t matter if it is an animal or an angel Linda gives them a voice and they always have something to say.
Linda uses a variety of mediums to create her art including acrylic paint, watercolour and some less conventional mediums such as coffee.
Everyday coffee Angels are Linda’s latest body of work, In her attempt to use art as therapy and relieve the stress of Covid-19 Linda committed to paint an angel a day using coffee as her medium. The angels use humour to overcome the turmoil of emotions triggered by the pandemic. Linda has created over 365 original coffee angel paintings and coupled each one with a national day. She has been sharing her art on Facebook every day. Her goal was to give people something to giggle about and also a reason to celebrate every day despite our current circumstances. She has also published all her angels in a book “Everyday Angels” . Linda is currently working on a new collection of Angels “in training” this series will be aimed at a younger audience and will depict the issues her kiddo angels experience as they grow into their wings.
