Linnea Pergola is an experimented painter and textile artist based in the United States whose works have been exhibited nationally, as well as in Switzerland, Germany, Puerto Rico, and Qatar. Her love of nature is apparent in her diverse compositions, as she often portrays both animals and birds. As such, Pergola is an advocate for animal rights and the unjust treatment of animals. Her incredibly detailed pieces are created with pencils, charcoal, watercolors, and ink on paper or fabric.
Linnea and her partner, Michael, just volunteered at Thula Thula Private Game Preserve in KwaZulu-Natal,South Africa. Next April they are moving to South Africa permanently. A lot of her work will be going on sale because the cost of shipping from there to the United States will be too costly. So keep watching this space to see what's for sale!
I see the vibrancy of the world around me and feel the need to sketch, paint, or draw it. "
I have been painting and drawing my whole life. It's been an interesting and challenging path. I began my art career with Martin Lawrence Galleries located (at the time in Van Nuys, Ca). I have since had numerous art publishers and have many serigraphs and giclees printed and distributed over the world. I currently work with Liberty Puzzles and they use some of my images for a very high end puzzle line.
I also work with Galerie-F in Germany . They print my images and design 3D prints that are fun and unique. (www.galerie-f.de)
I now live in Cornwall, New York with my South African boyfriend, 2 dogs and 5 chickens. I horseback ride weekly and am looking forward to more travelling this year.
I will be moving next Spring 2024 to South Africa with my partner, Michael permanently. A lot of my work will be for sale so keep checking back. Drop me an email if you have any questions!
