The artist's subject matter is as diverse and eclectic as her background and travels. She studied Art History, Cultural Geography, Chinese languages and History at Cal State University at Northridge and has traveled to the less often seen countries of Russia, Scandinavia and Poland, as well as the Philippines with the Peace Corps.
It is her love for the many different places and cultures that she has seen and studied and the history she has absorbed that have given her a bountiful reservoir into which she dips her pen and brush. Although many subjects inspire Linnea, cityscapes are most often seen throughout her work. She embraces their distinctive atmosphere and lifestyles, architecture, lighting and the high energy of the cities that ignite her imagination. The viewer enthralled, is transported to different cities'foreign lands'and times.
