Casalinda Studio draws inspiration from the mountains, deserts, and ocean of Southern California. The California native flowers pieces are influenced by the works of A.R. Valentien, who was commissioned by philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps to paint these endangered flowers. Linda is drawn to the dichotomy between rough, imperfect elements in nature and beautifully fashioned metal art.
