Reflections of Louisiana ....................................Reflet de Louisiane

 Joyce Linde

Welcome To My Professional
Photography and Painting Web Site!

  • You will find that my poetic images evoke the mysterious quality that lies just below the surface of Louisiana's rich landscapes and unique waterways.  My photography portrays a "southern" feeling that reflects the sultry and romantic mood that is unique to Louisiana.  The enchantment, mystique and beauty of Louisiana has created within me the desire to explore, experience and to photograph as much of her as I possibly can, and my work flows gently from one area to another area.
  • Louisiana is like a pulsating body, being fed by the waterways flowing in and round her in much the same way the sight, sound and smell flow in and around me.  It is in the bayous, swamps, marshes, and culture that my heart lies...right along with hers.

Joyce B. Linde Biography

I was born in Madera, California and traveled my way to Louisiana through Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Nebraska. When my parents settled in Lake Arthur, Louisiana, I soon became fascinated and entranced with the culture and the landscape of Louisiana. My education in the art of photography goes far beyond my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Southwestern Louisiana. My master study has continued at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, the Maine Photographic Workshops, and the Art New England Center in Vermont. My advance studies have been with Roger Heinen, Joyce Neimanas, Tom Carabashi, Shelby Adams, Maggie Stebber, Elizabeth Opalenik, and Jane Tuckerman.
