LIN-LIN STUDIO GALLERY

    Linwood Pettaway, an established professional artist of many styles & techniques; explores all venues. Lately Linwood has been endured with Murals for clients inside spaces and outside walls of buildings.They have all been Colorful, Whimsical, Fun, and yet Descriptive & Advisable which has made all of his clients very pleased with their outcomes. Murals are a way of catching one's eye when passing by - all to describe what is behind those walls to yearn someone to come in. There they learn more about what is behind that wall in regards to that particular business & all of their wares & goods to be shared & sold.  It works!

    Linwood is well known for his abilities to procure a Portrait for a client in any style they may like. Again he knows how to work with his client to find out if they are traditional, on the edge or abstract in their thinking of just how they want their Portrait rendered with it's end result. Oil,Acrylic,Graphite, or Colored Pencil along with a good photo and idea between him & his client works out to be a great end result. His clients have all been very surprised & extremely happy with the end results.

    In between these two loves Linwood creates conceptual abstracts for clients homes or business walls. The colors determined are a beginning foundation to what ever they want to have projected on a canvas.  Any size and any idea can be tranformed into a delightful and inviting work of art.
