“Making art is a multifaceted activity for me. Sometimes I know exactly what must be done, sometimes I haven’t a clue. I enjoy this play between the intuitive and the analytical, between the known and the unknown. I like being surprised. I like making decisions to problems I can’t define. Picasso said that painting is just another way of keeping a diary. As a diary it’s not easily read, but for me it is always worth the effort.” -Linda Atkinson My work includes some large scale commissioned sculpture. I was commissioned to carve a set of Ark Doors for Temple Emanuel in Roanoke, Virginia. The Doors measured 96"x48"x3", and are carved mahogany and pierced with stained glass. Recently I was commissioned to create an additional work for the Temple, a carved mahogany relief sculpture. This Tree of Life donor tree is also carved mahogany, and measures 66"x79"x3". In addition to working in wood, I created a 60"x144"x4" steel sculpture for Virginia Western Community College, an outdoor piece entitled "Inside/Out". The sculpture is displayed outside of the President's Office, in the Court of Four Seasons.
