Linda Pieri is a skilled and masterful professional artist from Northern Indiana.
Linda developed a love for art at an early age and was mentored by an accomplished artist for many years. After studying studio art at North Texas State University and illustration at the Art Institute of Dallas, Linda became empowered to share her passion and unique talents with others by offering an outlet for creative expression.
Linda's artwork has been heavily influenced from her time living abroad in Northern Ireland and extensive travels through England, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, France and South Africa. Her most recent pieces of art are inspired by the maestros who spearheaded the Impressionism art movement such as Claude Monet. During her travels to France, Linda had the opportunity to study Monet's prolific practices and artistic techniques, which further cultivated her mastery as an Impressionist artist.
Over the last decade, Linda has instructed more than twelve hundred students from ages 5 to 87 in acrylic painting and graphite drawing. In addition to giving private lessons, Linda shares her profound expressive abilities by teaching at various home school groups and large gatherings. She also hosts numerous events at prominent locations across Northern Indiana.
Through her instruction, Linda aims to instill the love of art among her students while teaching them to "not just look at what you're drawing or painting, but to see what is really there."
