About the Artist

Linda Swanson’s work engages the enigmatic properties of matter at an elemental level and the capacity of wonder to question how and what we know. Her raw and kiln fired ceramic works have been exhibited across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Swanson studied ceramics at the Tekisui Workshop in Ashiya, Japan, following a BA in Art History from UC Santa Barbara, then a BFA in Ceramics from Cal State Long Beach and an MFA from Alfred University. Since graduating in 2005, she has taught at Alfred University, the Kansas City Art Institute, and currently teaches at Concordia University in Montreal.
