The winter I was 5 found me on an army base in tropical Panama with my family. Buddhist monks, coy ponds, the ocean and wild animals still show up in my paintings.
The next year my principal had an artist come to Brown Academy in Washington DC, to give she and I private watercolor lessons. This is also when I became a museum hound, as Mother took us to the Smithsonian every weekend. So at 6, using the family Brownie camera, I started creating stories with paintings and photographs on the back of long rolls of teletype paper from the National Airport weather machine while writing narrative in crayon.
Nothing has changed- comparative culture and history, land and wildlife conservation. I'm doing what I've done all my life. Painting and exploring the world never let me go. More, better, faster--Linda Rorer, Artist
