My main approach to art making is nearly always the same: to rely heavily on spontaneity and intuition. First, I give free rein to my visual and emotional memory. Second, I trust that I have something to say even if I can’t imagine what that something is, and finally, I translate that into images via technical skills of painting drawing etc. which have sharpened over many years of making bad work to get to the good work. To see even more of the good work go to my website - http://www.lindalabellastudio.com
