About Linda Simon

Art played a big role for Ms. Simon very early on in her life. Linda made use to all that was offered in High School, she took Mechanical drawing, a two year trade school commercial art program, and almost triple majored in Art. Her artist influences include Norman Rockwell, Edgar Degas, Renoir and Nicolas Poussin's 'Adoration of the Shepherds'. Linda has quality, Contemporary Fine Art based on the enduring aesthetic principles of the old masters, using faces of her family, pets, and dear friends holding hints of Linda's life. Ms. Simon works predominately in non-traditional oils(non-toxic), incorporating pure pigments in her glazing, she also is accomplished in paper maché, clay, charcoal, color pencil, scratch board, pastels, ceramics, watercolors, gouache, airbrush, acrylics, graphite and pen and ink. Her other endeavors include textile and furniture design, refurbishing her 1883 home and the antiques that reside there, cake decorating, painting murals (home & auto), and set designs. She has lived in Central New York all her life. Linda attended Mohawk Valley Community College where she honed her illustration and design skills to gain an AAS degree in Advertising, Design, and Production. The curriculum was a concentrated version (four years into 2) of the Pratt Institute of Design program. After college she was as a Graphic Artist/Technician, where she created everything pre-press and additionally, taught seminars and apprenticeships on photography/prepress. Unfortunately early in her career she was overexposed on the job to many high cancer causing carcinogens, becoming very sick with Environmental Illness. Linda's illness has severely affected her immune system forcing her to stop working. Her true passion is painting in the comfort of her 3rd floor studio, creating joyful scenes that make all admirers happy, and even laugh. Linda lives with her daughter Hillary, two chocolate labs and two blue bengal cats. She has a beautifully decorated Victorian home, displaying her wonderful antiques and paintings for visitors to enjoy.
