Linden’s series “Shared Discoveries” tells a story of a journey; an artist’s journey, the light and the dark, the playful and the sublime.

Viewing the work one begins to see this journey unfold, following the thread of the vision as it weaves day by day into a net, gathering the subject matter of her journey. Where the threads intersect are the pivotal points of discovery, the universal meeting place where we convene. This process becomes a place where Linden finds a sense of peace and fulfillment.

We invite the viewer on this journey with Linden. Perhaps a reflection of the viewer’s own journey can begin to resonate within the series.

-J.M. Porter


Each day I enter my studio with the intent of playing, as a child would approach art making. As I work, the lyrics of Lennon’s song echo in my psyche. A process-oriented approach to creating art, employing intuition, chance and spontaneity building on what was done the day before seems to work best for me.
As a native Oregonian, my formal training began at Clatsop Community College in Astoria. I later earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from Pacific Northwest College of Art. Moving to the Bay Area soon after graduation, I started a school for children, teens and adults from my studio in Benicia, I learned as much from the children as they did from me. The spontaneity and purity of their work led me to revisit the medium of paint; I have been there ever since. I am proud to say The Linden Tree Art School is in its 10th year in Benicia, CA
In paint, Nature’s shapes and colors fuel my creative process; in an inventory of private symbols, biomorphic and geometric shapes, in air and water forms connected by the common thread of netting, which I see as a metaphor for the life force that connects all living things.
