LINDA ROSE LAROCHELLE graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a B.F.A. in Printmaking and has done graduate work at the University of Maryland, VCU and the Art League. While at the Art Institute her focus was on fine line etching. Later she branched out to explore color with pastels and watercolors.
Her interest has shifted again to relief prints as a vehicle for pattern, color and texture in composition. Many of her prints are "unique variations", meaning that they are one of a kind because the ink has been applied by hand in non- identical ways. Thus, each print will be unique, making them similar to mono prints.
A life long art educator she has retired from the Arlington County Virginia Public Schools to devote full time to art. She has had three one woman shows in the Washington area and her work is in private collections in California and on the East Coast. She is an active member of Falls Church Arts. As an art educator she has taught in a variety of settings and grade levels including public and private schools. Linda lives with her husband Richard in Falls Church City and has two grown sons.
"I'm pursuing a visual impact and meaning through exploring shape, color, texture and pattern." Linda Rose Larochelle
