Intro
Linda Threadgill currently resides and maintains a studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She earned an MFA from Tyler Schoolof Art, Philadelphia and a BFA from the Lamar Dodd School of Art, University of Georgia, Athens. She is Professor Emerita from the University of Wisconsin and has presented more than 80 lectures and technical workshops in The United States, Korea, England and Canada.
 

Statement

My work is a search for indulgent visual pleasure arising from a romantic view of nature. I see ornament as a conduit for emotional response and memory. The human endeavor for symmetry and balanced arrangement of forms is a satisfying mental habit that defies natural representation of nature.  I delight in multi-layered fanciful natural forms, emphasized by texture, color and repetition.
