Sherry Smith Bell creates innovative prints and mixed media drawings of houses, barns, doors, windows and nature.  Her art works use the tools of the artist: line, tone, color, ink, shape. Her art works are represented in many museum, university and private collections.

Born in Canton, Ohio; Lives and works in Los Angeles, CaliforniaLinda Lyke, a L.A. artist and Professor of Art at Occidental College, is known for her printmaking, multicolored abstract monotypes and mixed media work. Linda has shown in fifteen one-person exhibits and 80 national print and drawing exhibitions. Linda’s work explores two distinct artistic directions; one which investigates the intuitive process of abstraction and the other which references the destructive beauty in nature.
I grew up in Los Angeles and continue to work there as a studio artist, teacher, and illustrator. I exhibit locally and internationally. I’ve been active in the printmaking community since I began practicing print in 2011, during my undergraduate years at Cal State Northridge. I am currently head of the Valley Print Studio, which I founded in 2013. In my own work, I create visual poems about the connection between ideas, bodies, and characters. I do this by emphasizing and reimagining the represented contact point between these things. Whether in print, drawing, or painting, my sensibility as an artist is deeply influenced by the methods and aesthetics of printmaking. For me, composition is a process of drafting, layering, and varying.
