Linda Kunick is an artist, an advocate, and an activist. She works primarily on paper, creating bright, colorful images with crayon and colored pencil. Kunick returns to similar themes in her work, including nature, religion, and colorful abstractions. One image that appears throughout her work is the butterfly. Butterflies are Kunick’s personal motif, symbolizing change, growth, and freedom. Kunick is a 2017 graduate of the Teaching Artist Program and has annually visited Nicaragua for the last 21 years to do mission work.
