Living an Artful Life – the first of a series of Artisan profiles Linzy Art & Design

My intention is to profile the very talented artisans that will be participating in the Langley Artisan Christmas Fair on December 11.

The first artist is Linzy Art & Design. Linzy was born on Vancouver Island British Columbia in 1987.  At 15 her work was displayed in the Canadian Children’s Museum in Quebec after she placed first for British Columbia in a nation wide art competition.
Linzy is a well accomplished artist who is a graduate of Graphic Design from the Art Institute of Vancouver.  She also studied painting at Emily Carr Institute of Design & Art.  Linzy experimented in many forms of art and discovered her true love was with acrylics and textural mediums.  As an accomplished painter  her inspiration comes from places she explores and the beauty that surrounds her, which is depicted in her amazing art pieces of birds and landscapes which are conveyed with emotion and feeling.  She enjoys incorporating  mediums including liquid leaf, metallics, gold leaf and varnishes into her beautiful creations. 

Linzy is now living her childhood dream with her artwork represented in galleries in Vancouver, Alberta and New York City.  She has also displayed her work at:

“Birds of a Feather”, Sept 11- Oct 11 2010 Wallflower Gallery, Poco. www.wallflowersandbeyond.com
