Featured Artist Works Displayed in the Offices of the Governor

January, February, and March 2004 - Lili Stewart & Linda Little (Dickinson)

Lili Stewart, a native North Dakotan, Lili has spent decades drawing and painting the landscapes and wildlife of the northern plains. Her award-winning work has been featured in numerous solo exhibitions, and she has done extensive work as an illustrator. Her art appears in limited edition prints, posters, book illustrations, logo designs, caricatures, cartoons, and portraits for such organizations as the Theodore Roosevelt Nature and History Association, the Great Plains Chautauqua Society, and the North Dakota Humanities Council.

In the 1980s, Stewart was chosen to redraw the Great Seal of the State of North Dakota. Her most recent illustrating effort is a series of more than 50 collector’s cards depicting historic scenes from the journey of Lewis and Clark.

Stewart works in many media including pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, and etching on clayboard. Her favorite subjects have always been scenes depicting animals and birds native to western North Dakota. She has taught students of all ages - from elementary to adult - and currently works as Adjunct Lecturer of Art in the Department of Fine Arts at Dickinson State University.

Linda Little began sculpting as a result of a brain trauma received during an automobile accident. With her shortterm memory and cognitive skills impaired, she was forced to begin life anew as daily tasks and events posed new challenges. To help her rise to these challenges, Little developed in interest in sculpture, which she first makes in poly-based clay and later reproduces in bronze.

Her subject matter ranges from portraits of mothers and infants, angels, women of the prairie, cowboys, dogs, and the most recently commissioned, limited edition North Dakota pheasant entitled “Opening Day,” one of which she plans to eventually donate to the state.

Little has studied sculpture under master Valantin Okorokov for the past five years. Her work is part of both private and public art collections, including in the Gallery of the Masters in Loveland, CO and the Agnisiuh Gallery in Sedona, AZ.
