Welcome!  My name is Linda David and here you can get more information on me and the presentation of art where wood is the medium of choice.  This site includes just a few examples from my portfolio, and the types of services that I offer.  As a freelance artist I am always looking to be part of a new and exciting project, and finding the appreciative recipient for pieces I have crafted.
 
I create artistic renderings from patterns, sketches, and photographs. Each piece takes on unique characteristics dependent on the colors and grain patterns of the woods chosen.  No two pieces, even from the same design, are ever identical.  Nature provides a surprisingly vast rainbow of wood colors to enhance art.  Pieces may depict animals or scenes from nature, spiritual or seasonal items, historic events, a loved one's pet, school mascots, useful yet decorative items (like clocks and letter openers), and even corporate logos...just some of my various projects.
 
I utilize several techniques for scroll cutting and the shaping of wood, depending on the desired work of art or sculpture being developed. INTARSIA (multi-dimensional), INLAY (combining different woods together),  FRET (silhouette), and SEGMENTATION (like a puzzle) are my primary focus for structure.  All are done using a SCROLLSAW for cutting the wood, frequently using a blade not much thicker than a needle.  Most of my pieces are finished with a clear protective coating to "show off" nature's colors, without altering the beauty of the wood.  Some pieces do call for color staining or painting when more dramatic effects are desired. Beauty is all in what the beholder desires to see.  But, domestic and/or exotic hardwoods the basis of every piece.
 
Please explore my website to see examples of my distinctive style.  If you are interested in commissioning me to do a custom piece,  purchasing an available work of art, or simply inquiring, please contact me for more information.  
 
I look forward to providing you with a one of a kind gift for yourself, or someone else.  Thank you for coming, enjoy your visit!
