Linda L Brobeck is a visual artist who utilizes dramatic coloration, as well as occasional figurative elements, as a reflection of her own energy and emotion. The paintings-with their layers, texture, and color – symbolize life with both its drama and subtlety. “I am interested in internal dialogue – in emotion made visible.  In some instances, I paint until the emotion emerges. Occasionally, images emerge from the abstract – somehow caught in the space between conscious and unconscious thought.” Linda’s works are an expression of her inner life,  but she invites viewers to create their own narrative based on personal experience.

Linda’s work has been exhibited and collected locally, nationally, and internationally.  Her work is also in the permanent collections of several  hospitals and health clinics,  helping to transform spaces into calming environments for patients and visitors.  

Linda is a curious person who explores a variety of mediums and especially  loves to work in clay and to write. She is the owner of Crow River North, a studio located along the Crow River in Minnesota. The studio is open to visitors at designated times or by appointment. She holds a Master’s Degree in Visual Art/Studio Art from The University of Wisconsin. She is an International Association of Art Professional Artist and member of IAA USA. 

Brobeck is an advocate – a Director and Chair of the Central Minnesota Arts Board (CMAB), and Grant Panelist at CMAB.  Linda was appointed by the Minnesota Governor to the Perpich Center for Arts Education, where she serves on the Executive Committee, and is Chair of the Human Resources  and Nominating Committees.  Linda is a volunteer with mnArtists.org, a project of Walker Art Center,  and a Team Leader for Arts Advocacy Day,  at Minnesota Citizens for the Arts – MCA.
