Linda DeLuca grew up in Welland, Ontario where she was born and raised. I am a multimedia artist who works often with printmaking and painting. My most recent work is a series involving the theme of animals. I am playing on a narrative with the idea of ” Canandiana”. The motifs I use are the Hudson Bay logo and local wildlife. My process involves linocutting and collage with Japanese paper. The work is mounted on wooden frames, I explore colour in various ways adding another interesting element to the work, The use of repetition from printmaking techniques adds a surreal quality to the pieces. To create a polished finish I have used a coating of resin on the work.
