Artist Linda Couse was born in Greenwich Village, grew up in Pittsburgh and has lived in Florida since 1964. Right from the start she was able to watch her father, magazine illustrator E.P. Couse, at work in his home studio, absorbing pen & ink and watercolor techniques, and job production routines. After motherhood she returned to art, working first as designer for SKD, a craft and art supplies wholesaler, where she found paper sculpture, one of her enduring favorite media.
