Linda Summers Posey - Artist's Statement  

While I have experienced a lot of joy as a writer, I became an artist to play with my self-expression more freely. Painting and designing jewelry give me opportunities to create nonverbally - in a new language, as it were, that feels fresh and personal.

I love the creative process of experimenting with color, line, shape and texture. Each piece is an adventure for me, taking me out of space-time and into an unknown world.

My artistic goal is to freely express all that is possible for me as a human being. I hope my work generates in viewers a sense of their own possibilities. If I inspire one person to reach for their own creativity, then I’ve succeeded as an artist.

I live in the Houston area with my husband of 40 years and our 3 cats.

About Linda's "Galactic Art"

Years ago, I caught my husband’s love of astronomy. But stargazing isn’t an easy hobby to pursue in Houston, so I set my imagination loose on the cosmos. The result is a series of paintings that, for me at least, evoke the grandeur of the galaxy but in a fanciful way.

I’m having fun designing constellations my way. Why not? Most real constellations bear little resemblance to the animals or people they represent. So why shouldn't I make up my own starscapes?

I didn’t want to reproduce real galaxies and constellations. The Hubble Telescope handles that so well. I’d much rather make up something you might find in a galaxy far, far away. So I invented the “Heart of the Universe,” “Love Galaxy” and “Red Sky at Night” – to name just a few of my star-studded creations.

I'm also a former chemist and a big science fiction fan. Painting galaxies satisfies my need to keep in touch with those left-brain pursuits that still call to me.

About Linda's "Ike Art"

The day after Hurricane Ike, I looked out at the branches, leaves, even whole trees filling the streets of our neighborhood. Many huge trees had been uprooted, and several had landed on my neighbors' homes. I'd never seen so much destruction caused by Mother Nature.

I felt the horror of the moment, knowing that many communities were far worse off than ours. And I instantly realized that I had a choice - I could see destruction or I could see some positive possibility.

The first thought that came to my mind was: Art materials! I went out into the neighborhood to gather the bounty Ike had given me - a whole new set of tools. The resulting “Ike Art” paintings are created using pine needles, oak leaves, lichens, moss, etc. as my brushes and patterns. It’s very satisfying to create something so colorful and beautiful from bits of that destruction.

"What an awesome organization! It's great to hear about people (especially artists!) taking a 'what CAN we do' attitude instead of focusing on how horrible the economy is etc. etc. Linda is such a positive, talented and creative person, it doesn't surprise me that she would start an organization like this." -- Stephanie Troutner
