Hi! I'm Lina (Pronounced Lee-nuh, Short for Allina, Quotes by Lina Lamont welcome)

I was born in 1987 on an American Air Force base in Torrejón de Ardoz, Spain. For the first three years of my life, my family traveled to various places in both the US and Spain before we finally settled in Missouri. Growing up, I dabbled in all forms of art, from writing to music to painting to drawing to photography. I attended Columbia College in Missouri, where I earned a BA in Psychology. Despite my many aspirations, and my full-time job as a preschool teacher, I still found time to paint and take pictures, two things that have always brought me comfort. I had always shared my photography, but it wasn't until my late 20s, early 30s, that I began to share my paintings with the world. After that, I had no problem jumping whole-heartedly into an art career. I took online classes, taught myself watercolors before studying further into inks, gouache, and digital painting. And during that time, I began to immerse myself in the local art community, appearing in shows and entering that whole gallery scene, which I love.

I currently live in Jefferson City, Missouri with my husband, daughter, two cats, a canary, and an ornery husky named Howl.

    Working with a variety of mediums, from watercolors to pastels, I love to explore natural patterns, artistic experiments, and playful methods. About 90% of my work is improvised.
