Artist Statement

"My life, spirit and art are intertwined. For me, art is all about connection - to God, myself, others and creation. Painting is much more a response to Divine Love and Grace rather than a mere rendition of a subject onto a canvas. The artwork begins to beat with its own heart. Painting is a mystery. I am always inspired. Every painting reveals its own experience not just to the beholder but to me. I hope that the truth of the art will resonate with all who seek truth. My signature, "Fidelis", is both a prayer of gratitude and a reminder to be faithful in giving glory to God, the Creator and Lover of Life, Who lets me." -Linda Ledet
