    January 2019: Linda Glover Gooch

    Linda Glover Gooch

    Growing up in Southern California, Linda Glover Gooch developed a love of the desert and canyons. Having painted since her early teens, Linda became the first full-time professional painter in her family, although both her parents as well as her grandmother were amateur artists.

    Linda often works outdoors, on location, plein air. Many trips and hours spent outdoors bring new inspiration as each day reveals different light and weather conditions. The grandeur and ever-changing moods of the Southwest are a constant source of study and an important part of her continued growth as an artist.

    In her artist statement, Linda expresses the purpose of her art: "I want to bring a quiet peace to people. I hope viewers will receive something more than the visual.”
