Los Angeles Water Artist


About the artist....

Wisconsin native Linda Weber Queally graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and then moved to Los Angeles, where she studied Art and Design at the prestigious Otis Art Institute and Parsons School of Design.  She most recently received a Certificate and Associates Degree in Gemology from Santiago Canyon College in Orange.  

Linda is a Jewelry Designer, Painter and Photographer, with water being the key element in her work.  It manifests itself in the form of Mermaids and Swimmers, of Surfers and Pearls.  


Showing her work nationally, the artist has won numerous awards, while calling Los Angeles her home for over 30 years.

Her extensive travels in Mexico are also reflected in her work, along with her love for the Surf Culture of Southern California. 

She is also available to give group Gem Presentations, and currently offers three presentations:
1.  The Color Wheel of Gems
2.  Mexican Amber and her travels in Chiapas, Mexico
3.  Pearls, Gifts from the Sea


Artist Statement:

As my work continues to evolve over the years, it remains ever focused on water, and becomes more and more filled with imagination.  I love expressing the divine feminine energy and beauty of women through my paintings, who I allow to tell me their story as I paint them.  I often find myself including fauna, as I feel the animals are as excited to know these beautiful Goddesses of the sea as I am.

In my original jewelry designs, I strive to give my Mermaids an abstract, sculptural quality, resembling an ancient relic that was locked away in a treasure chest deep in the ocean.  And lately I've been challenging myself to include a line of Mermen in both my paintings and my jewelry design as well, although they've been there all along in my surf photography.

Lastly I fascinated with Pearls, gifts from the sea, and they show up in just about everything I do.

So it's through all three of these forms of personal expression, painting, photography, and jewelry design, around a central theme, water, that I have joyfully found my life's work.
