Linda Holt

Linda Audrey Holt

Philadelphia was my home long enough to be born, and years later, attend Penn for an MFA. In between, I lived in England, Alabama, Virginia and France. After finishing Paris American high school, it was on to Skidmore for a BS in fine arts. It took a few years in business — at Lord & Taylor and Management Recruiters — before my return to the studio. Some twenty-five years later, I’m still happily pushing around paint.
