“As a native New Yorker I loved the lush rolling hills and mountains, the tall vibrant green trees and foliage, the riot of color during the fall, and of course the winter snow. This background of nature, color, and seasonal weather from the Finger Lakes region in New York inspires and influences my painting today as a landscape artist. Moving to North Central Texas in the early 90’s ago was a drastic change in environment. Since moving I have come to love painting the flat plains and plateaus of North Central Texas and that of the American Southwest just as I am still drawn the magnificent landscape of the northeast.”
Linda Bein likes to experiment with various media and techniques, however, transparent water color is her primary media. Linda’s love of the earth and Mother Nature are reflected in her works, even abstracts turn into trees and countryside. Although Linda is predominately a landscape artist she enjoys painting different subject matter using a wide variety of materials. Recently she has been experimenting with equine subjects. Linda’s belief that we as people are forever changing and growing is carried through her art with different media and subjects. To stay the same would be… to be left behind.
Linda reserves a portion of her day to share her love of art with children and adults at The Bein Gallery and Art School and in her Southlake studio. Students experiment with pencil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, paper mache, clay, carving, and just about any form of art we can touch, feel and work with.
Linda Bein was born and raised in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. She relocated to Southlake, Texas with her husband and family in the early 90’s when she began her career in art.
