Little, Linda
Discipline: Sculpture

Linda Little began sculpting as a result of a brain trauma received during an automobile accident. With her short-term 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, Colorado and the Agnisiuh Gallery in Sedona, Arizona.

During the months of January, February, March 2004, Little was one of the featured artists in the offices of North Dakota Governor John Hoeven and First Lady Mikey Hoeven.
