Lynda Kusuma has spent most of her life exploring and studying the natural environment. The incredible patterns, lines, shapes, and textures defining our environment have become the primary basis for her work, drawing attention to the parallels between natural and manmade objects.
Her intaglio prints highlight less obvious relationships into a seamless composition to force a visual comparison. Kusuma received a BFA in Design from Carnegie-Mellon University in 1986 and worked as a design consultant for several years before returning to school to become certified to teach young children.
After several years of teaching she once again returned to school to follow her interest in horticultural science and the arts, which led to a MFA 2018 in printmaking from the Academy of Art.
Her work has been exhibited at the Academy of Arts Annual Spring Show in 2016, 2017, and 2018; The Orlando Museum of Art First Thursdays; SOBO Gallery, Winter Garden, FL; Hyatt Regency, Orlando, FL; and The Printed Image 7 at the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery, Topeka, KS. She currently runs a printmaking studio in Florida.
