Linda Ruth Dickinson

Linda Ruth Dickinson is a self-taught artist born and raised on the island of Taiwan to Midwestern American parents. Drawing on this transcultural heritage she seeks to bridge seemingly disparate worldviews by expressing the intangible through universal iconography in a synthesis of Eastern and Western thoughts, traditions and values.

Translating her vision primarily through paint on canvas or panel, Dickinson’s explorations result in abstracted imagery that is both familiar and otherworldly.

The recipient of many awards, including Sotheby's for Outstanding Work, her art has been exhibited in museums, art centers and galleries throughout the United States and can be seen in numerous private, public and institutional collections.  Her work has been published, in print and online, and was a subject of a PBS Television Documentar
