Artist of the Month December 2023


Linda Reymore

Stuart, Florida, USA

Linda Reymore earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from St. Mary's College, Notre Dame, Indiana. She obtained a Master of Science in Marketing Communications from Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois while working for an advertising firm there.  In the 1970s after moving to North Carolina with her husband, Linda exhibited in a solo exhibition in a Kinston gallery selling a selection of her works from that show to a corporate collection.

Linda's subsequent career outside of the art field was supplemented by volunteer activities in local arts agencies using her business, art, and graphic design abilities to market and grow the audiences of these organizations.  Upon retirement, Linda returned to creating art successfully pursuing exhibition opportunities in local, national, and international galleries, and online exhibits and publications.  She is a member of the International Society of Experimental Artists, MartinArts, the Martin Artisans Guild, and the St. Lucie Cultural Alliance.  Linda resides in Florida.

How and when did you start creating art?

As a young child, one of the “summer enrichment” programs my mother provided was an oil painting class taught by her friend, a local artist in St. Louis.  To this day, many of the instructor’s lessons on color and color mixing, composition, and observation, as well as her encouragement provided the stimulus for me to continue making art.

What media and genres do you work in?

I am an artist who works with paint and mixed media on canvas, using various materials to create different effects. My artistic style is diverse, ranging from non-objective and minimal to abstract and impressionistic. I also enjoy experimenting with three-dimensional work and photography from time to time.

Who or what are your influences?

I am inspired by various sources of artistic expression, especially the movements of the early and mid-20th century. I appreciate the works of Kandinsky and Rothko, among others. I also respect and learn from the incredible creativity of my colleagues who create amazing art that is often ignored and unnoticed by the public.

What was your inspiration for

Seconds to Zoomies


Cat lovers will know the obvious answer to my inspiration for “Seconds to Zoomies”…my cat, of course!  The artistic style is somewhat “Kandinsky-esque” but with shape, line, and color seemingly appearing and disappearing as a way to express the unexpected energy of my cat’s antics.

Describe your creative process?

My process employs an intellectual exercise in experimentation and puzzle solving…assembling and balancing pieces to find a “comfortable” or “comfortably uncomfortable” compositional pose.  Rotating elemental emphasis on shape, form, line, texture, color, and neutrality of color using varied materials on canvas provides a broad range of creative possibilities, continual challenges, and inspirational sources.

Upon completing a piece, I disengage from my work and, as an observer, often discover a familiar object or a latent abstract concept illustrated.  Likewise, through the spiritual aspect often attributed to non-objective art, viewers may become participants in my creative process by overlaying their own personal experiences in perception, beliefs, interpretation, and ultimate connection or indifference to a piece.

What are you working on currently?

I am working on two pieces that are inspired by “Seconds to Zoomies,” but are strictly non-objective.  In them, I am exploring the style of Zoomies but concentrating on shapes, overlapping color transparencies, and “pushing” compositional elements.

I am also excited to be working on a themed three-person exhibit scheduled in a little over a year at our cultural center gallery.  The exhibit requires quite a bit of new work but provides a significant creative challenge.

What are your near/long term goals as an artist?

I am passionate about creating art that reflects my inspiration and vision. My short-term and long-term goal is to pursue and seize opportunities to showcase my work in various venues.
