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 are created in an intensive process with multiple paint layers that are then distressed to create texture, and varied colors. “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. 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 arts and community advocate – a Director and Chair of the Board at Central Minnesota Arts Board (CMAB), and Grant Panelist at CMAB. Linda was appointed by Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton, and reappointed by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, to the Perpich Center for Arts Education, where she serves as Chair of the Board. She also serves on the Minnesota Department of Human Services Deaf & Hard of Hearing Services Division, on a Regional Service Center Advisory Committee, and with Allina Health, as a Patient & Family Advisor.

I acknowledge the State of Minnesota as the traditional territory of the Dakota, Anishinaabe, and other Indigenous peoples who were forcibly removed from and are still connected to this land. I offer my gratitude for the opportunity to live, work, and to be in community with them.
