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 educator from Maine to California, Linda now focuses on her own art. She has enjoyed the challenge
of teaching and the perspective that it has brought to her work.
A native of Cohasset, Massachusetts, Linda received a BA from Wilson College,
PA and MS in Art Ed at Central Connecticut State University. She has studied with numerous national artists such
as pastelists Doug Dawson, Terri Ford, Clark Mitchell, Kim Lordier, and Teresa Saia. 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. She maintains a home studio in Yarmouth Port, MA.
She is a member of the Pastel Painters Society of Cape Cod. Her award-winning work has been exhibited in
group and juried shows in the SF Bay Area, Cape Cod, at Wilson College, and Addison Art Gallery. Her work is found in
numerous private collections from California to Cape Cod.
