For artist and teacher, Linda Sargent Beach, it was a natural progression from using chalk as a teacher to painting
landscapes in pastel. After a career as an art teacher from Maine to California, Linda is now an art instructor in
Livermore, CA. She enjoys the challenge of teaching and the perspective that it brings to her own art.
A native of Cohasset, MA, Linda received a
BA from Wilson College, PA and MS in Art Ed at Central Connecticut State University. Linda has studied a variety
of media at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and workshops in Santa Fe. She has studied
with numerous national artists such as pastelists Doug Dawson, Terri Ford, Clark Mitchell, and Kim Lordier. Linda
continues to seek new methods for her own expression in landscape. Her work in natural color often depicts
a sense of distance and serenity.
Linda Beach is an active member of art organizations on both the East and West
Coasts where she maintains home studios in Yarmouth Port, MA and Livermore, CA. Membership includes the Pastel Society
of the West Coast and the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. Her award-winning work has been exhibited in group
