Nature and imagination focused Linda Page’s attention as she was free to wander on her family farm in rural South Carolina. Making art was a constant pastime. She continued to make art alongside a lengthy career teaching art at the Spartanburg Day School in the same locale where she had grown up and earned a degree in Fine Art.
Linda discovered New York City in 1967 and a new world opened to her. Following the challenge, she earned an MAE degree from the Rhode Island School of Design and later studied at a New York University Summer Atelier. In 1987 Linda Page Hudgins began summer artist travels to numerous European countries. Still yearning to know the world more intimately, she left with the US Peace Corps in 1992 to serve for three years teaching art in Botswana and subsequently traveled to China to teach art and English. Linda returned to Africa to visit Ghana and study textile art.
In 1999 Linda returned south and settled in Tryon, NC. where she set up a studio and devoted her attention to her own artistic development. During her entire career she has exhibited art frequently in regional venues and since the 1980’s has had work in galleries in Chicago, New York City and Richmond, Virginia as well as NC, SC and GA. She had work in the Botswana National Museum while there and sent an exhibition back to the Francistown and Maun Museums after her return to the USA. She has also taken an exhibition of work back to Guilin, PR China more recently.
"I paint the intangible-conveyed by the visual. A sentient being, I access records of this expansive, chaotic world and am excruciatingly content working with an open, yet focused, mind and heart to share them. Viewers perceive the changing and creative nature of existence; experience joy participating with the images and connect to their own creative natures."
