LINDA TERNOIR | ARTIST PORTFOLIO
LINDA TERNOIR: STATEMENT
My early drawings and paintings were inspired by stories, dreams, and imagination. My knowledge of mediums and techniques expanded when I attended classes at the Art Institute of Chicago and majored in art at the University of Illinois. I paint with acrylics and I draw with ink. I have participated in numerous exhibitions; winning awards and prizes. I’ve worked on commission and I’ve conducted art workshops. Working from my imagination allows me to access a depth of expression with minimum distraction. I become the choreographer, enticing the viewer into the story.
