Linda Chen, SCA

Linda Chen is a visual artist based in Toronto. She was born in Taiwan, graduated with a BA in English Literature, and moved to Canada in 1996. 

Linda has loved making art since she was a child, but never had the opportunity to pursue art as a discipline until she journeyed into a new life in a new country. 

While painting murals on her bathroom walls for fun, she thought, "If I can paint on walls, maybe I can paint on canvases!" So far, she is very happy about where it has taken her. 

After years of practicing art on her own and taking art classes in local art galleries, Linda became a student at the Toronto School of Art in 2006 and graduated with a Fine Arts Diploma in 2010. 

This new learning experience opened her eyes to the art world, which inspired her to write a series of short articles in Chinese sharing these experiences with, and encouraging other immigrants to, reach out to their communities.
