The one constant in Linda Lewis’ artwork is her desire to present a critique of, or a social commentary on, culture. She is particularly interested in the history of ideas and the development of ideological systems. This interest is largely the result of her university studies in sociology and anthropology. However, after achieving a graduate degree in sociology, Linda realized that she prefers to represent her ideas and opinions visually rather than academically.
She states: “I received a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1997 from Arizona State University in Tempe, AZ, USA. At the time, I worked in ‘fiber arts,’ which is a medium just like drawing, painting, or sculpture. I utilized fibrous materials, and many traditional techniques used by women in their homes. During my study, I received a Fulbright scholarship to study at the Danish Design School in Copenhagen, Denmark. Additionally, I received the graduate school's highest award, the Nathan Cummings Foundation Summer Travel Fellowship. After graduation, I developed an extensive exhibition record that includes national and international exhibitions. However, after moving to Texas in 2005, I gradually switched to creating digital artwork.”
