Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) 2021
Learn About Grants for Artist Projects (GAP)


The “touch and texture” sensation of Fiber/Mixed Media Art allows people to connect with art, and allows them to explore their own creative imaginations, feelings and emotions. Linda uses color, texture and symbolism to give the viewer “permission” to connect to the feeling and emotions of all art. Linda was born and raised in Great Falls, Montana. Her mother’s family is one of the first African American families to have settled in Montana while it was still part of the Nebraska Territory. She attended college at the University of Montana (formerly Eastern Montana College), Billings, MT. and received degrees in Speech Communication/Theatre Arts and Psychology. In addition, she received an MBA and MLO from City University, Seattle, WA and graduate certificate in Fiber Arts from the University of Washington. Linda’s photography and Art work has been featured on album covers, Facebook, juried art shows and galleries. Her art work has been featured at the UW School of Social Work Gallery, C-Gallery-Seattle, Northwest Folklife Fiber Arts Booth and the Art and Social Change juried show at Meydenbauer Center, Bellevue, WA. Linda owns and operates White Carnations Voices, dedicated to Voice Acting and By Request Designs for Fiber Art and Photography work. Linda continues to explore touch, texture, symbolism, and color through African textiles and their develpment and history and meanings in the African Diaspora.
