Artist Information
Teacher and practicing artist for over 35 years, Haynes is an artist in residence at Union Street Gallery, an artists’ cooperative and not-for-profit organization in Chicago Heights, Il.  Acceptance in the organization allows studio space rental and opportunities to promote the Arts with community service.  Linda is a resident of Dyer, Indiana.

Artist Statement
My paintings are narratives, small stories about life.  As metaphor, my paintings are life and the impressions left as evidence of our passage.  Recent works are abstractions influenced by music, more specifically, blues and jazz.  Layers of marks and color act as musical interpretation.
