Artist Tribute -  February 2015



Linda Davis



Linda David grew  up in Indiana; married her sweetheart and lived in Stuttgart,  Germany  for three years where  her daughter  was  born.  In 1987 the family moved to Phoenix and helped start a manufacturing  company making aerospace type metal parts.

 Linda did  the accounting, taxes. computer   programming  and   Learned  to run  all the equipment. She  also  obtained her college  education.. with a degree in Manufacturing Technology.   As an adult, when empty nest syndrome hit, Linda felt she needed a hobby. Appreciating the possibilities of Scroll saw an made  from wood. started with her parents. Her mother  was into crafts, and her father built gorgeous  bedroom furniture. Linda inherited the love of wood, and with the focus and discipline learned in thirty years of working in precision metal  parts, started  on  her career  in artistic  wood­ working. 

Wood challenges an artist  to show  off its beauty. "I  utilize several  techniques for scroll cutting  and shaping of  wood  for  the art  being developed, INTARSIA  (multidimensional),  INLAY  (combining different  woods  together),  FIRFT (silhouette) and SEGMENTATION (like a puzzle) are my primary focus for structure.  All are done  using a SCROLL­ SAW for  cutting, frequently using  a  blade  not much  thicker  than  a  needle.    Most  pieces  are  finished  with a clear protective coating  to "show off' natures  colors.  without  altering   the  beauty  of  the wood. 

Nature provides a  surprisingly vast  rainbow  of wood colors to enhance ar1.It is a constantly evolving process.

Linda's work may depict  animals  or scenes  from nature. spiritual. or seasonal  items,  historic  events. a loved one's pet. school mascots,  useful yet deco­ rative  items  (like  clocks  and  letter openers) and even corporate logos.  One project may use as many as three  hundred  pieces of wood. Earth is one-of ­ a- kind artistic treasure magazines  in 2013  and  2014.   Every  year Linda  demonstrates   for  the  county and  state   fairs  and   PAG shows. She  has  been  honored   with  several  first Place  ribbon  entries. 

"I  enjoy  my eight  year  old grandson. exhibiting and demonstrating my work. and producing  beautiful,  creative  pieces  that are as unique as the wood in my hands at the time. I especially enjoy  teaching  the kids that 'not  a11  wood  is brown.  and  don't judge  a  tree  by its  bark!'  As  a freelance artist  I  am always  looking  to  be part of a new and exciting project.  And finding the appreciative recipient for the pieces I have created.''
