Meet the Artist
My name is Linda Sperruzzi and I have been an artist since I was a child. When I was a very young, I began drawing & creating. Honestly, I have always known that art was the path I would follow.
I majored in Illustration at Rhode Island School of Design and Art Education at Dowling College. Since then, and for the last 25 years, I have been a commissioned artist and muralist. In 2010 I was a finalist in Artist Magazine's Annual Portrait contest!
In 2011 I opened The Painted Canvas Art Studio in Wading River, NY. It was there, while working with my students and seeing their love of art, I was inspired to create the Artzi Kids brand of books and dolls for young creatives. My first children's book Allie the Artist, together with collectable dolls, are for sale on Amazon, as well as on my website and in fine-toy stores for purchase!
Unfortunately, in 2020, my beloved studio was forced to close due to the pandemic. One door closes and another opens! My family and I decided to move to St. Augustine. I am in love with the city and have based much of my current collection on its stunning architecture, wildlife and shadows. My current focus is watercolor and acrylic with a concentration on contemporary landscape and animal design. Having had extensive training in these mediums my entire life, I enjoy both the vibrant colors of acrylics, as well as the softer, more translucent, beauty of watercolor.
My work changes often and I paint according to my inner inspirations and mood; so new pieces will be displayed often. I am thrilled to be a part of the art community in St Augustine and excited to exhibit at the P.A.St.A Fine Art Gallery!
