About the Artist Linda Jane Smith
Linda Jane Smith studied Graphic Design at Bournville College of Art in Birmingham, and her time there gave her the discipline to work very precisely and enabled her to combine the two great loves of her life, cats and painting.
Linda Jane Smith is an avid collector of old objects; hat pins, china and fabrics are treasures to her and they often turn up in her own paintings. Humour is also a big part of Linda’s work.
She works with designer gouache, in a Pointillist style, making a detailed drawing first, then meticulously putting on dots of paint to slowly build up the colour so that it has form and texture.
Find Your Zen with Mindful Slow Entertainment
Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to unwind. They demand attention which makes doing them, both absorbing and meditative at the same time. When concentrating on creative pursuits like art, craft or indeed jigsaw puzzles, you subconsciously tune out other distracting thoughts. In essence, your mind goes blank. Furthermore this quieting of the mind is highly therapeutic and forms the basis of meditation practice in eastern religions and philosophies. In Zen Buddhism, every action can become a source of meditation. From simply walking to making things, to doing jigsaws. The art of Zen is to dedicate your mind and thoughts only to the action that you are doing now.
