Linda Richichi : It all started…
Since 1999, the globally collected Artist Linda Richichi has earned many Best of Show Awards at national and international Plein Air paint outs and exhibitions. One of her paintings that received a Best of Show was at the International Plein Air Painters World Wide Paint Out in Ontario, Canada. Notably, in 2012 Richichi was voted as National Best Intuitive Artist from About.com (then a NY Times company).
Soon after graduating in 1994 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art from SUNY, Richichi received a scholarship from the Pastel Society of America to attend the Art Students League in New York City.
Linda quickly found national acclaim as a portrait painter, but in 2001 she felt a calling for the wild. She turned to Plein Air painting, as she found that Mother Nature was the healing energy she need to recover from deeply resonating personal loss. This began her realization that art can help to heal us, too. Through her paintings, like in her workshops in Sarasota, Fl, you begin to “Experience the Energy” through the harmonized color vibrations in her art. She has been conducting Color and Energy workshops since 2011 in the US and abroad.
Linda’s work has exhibited extensively around North America including the prestigious National Arts Club in New York City with the Pastel Society of America. internal link
