Linda Hutchins is a visual artist whose work tests the limits of body, mind, and self in a reappraisal of the meaning and experience of drawing. Beyond works on paper, her investigations have taken form as site-specific installations, wall drawings, cross-disciplinary collaborations, performances and custom drawing tools. Hutchins has been honored with two Individual Artist Fellowships from the Oregon Arts Commission, the Jurors' Award in the Tacoma Art Museum's 2009 Northwest Biennial and a solo exhibition in Oregon’s Governor's Office. Hutchins holds a BFA in Drawing from Pacific Northwest College of Art and a BSE in Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan. Before attending art school, she wrote operating system software for Intel Corporation. She lives and works in the Bowstring Truss House, a renovated warehouse in Portland, Oregon.
