In this week’s session, we meet Virginia artist Linda Wren. Linda received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University with a foundation in graphic and industrial design and spent most of her career working in 2 dimensions. She designed ads for such companies as Nike, Seiko, and Mercedes. She climbed the ranks of various Ad agencies in her hometown of Richmond and worked as Vice President, Senior Art Director of The Martin Agency. Longing to work in 3 dimensions, Linda took classes at The Visual Arts Center of Richmond. There she renewed her interest in clay, which she had kindled in High School. When Covid19 denied her access to the studio and the potter’s wheel, her style had to change. Only then did she explore doing ceramic busts. Lo and behold, her passion was found, and these little characters were born. Each of them has its own charm, personality, and magic.
Watch the recording to learn more about Linda’s work.
