Linda Ness – “The Art of Healing”
“This gallery of paintings serves as a witness to a personal journey of healing from childhood sexual abuse. These richly colored figurative images are seeds of hope and understanding. By stopping the eye, waking the emotions and offering insights into an emotional subject that has been governed by taboo and secrecy for too long, my hope is that survivors become inspired and encouraged to work through their own issues, thus breaking the cycle of abuse.”
Here is Linda’s bio from the book, “She Who Was Lost Is Remembered: Healing from Incest Through Creativity,” which features her works: “Linda Ness is a self-taught artist who has lived and worked in Seattle for over twenty years. Her early work in the printing and graphics industry contributed to her own successful graphic arts career. In addition, her hundreds of paintings over the last sixteen years are evidence of her own committment to healing from the horrors of a childhood filled with physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Her paintings have been recognized and included in numerous exhibits in the Pacific Northwest.”
