Excerpt, pp. 433-434:
“Linda Vallejo (1951— ), of Los Angeles, studied lithography in Madrid and earned an M.A. from California State University at Long Beach. She has received grants from the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for her experimental prints, which combine lithography, silk screen, and monotype with stop-outs and dyes.
Vallejo started out as a surrealist, but now says: ‘All of my pieces contain archetypal, mythological, or dream world imagery. I use archetypal subject matter found in ancient cultures, combined with the modern idea of self knowledge through the interpretation of dreams.’ She works with Self-Help Graphics, a studio and gallery serving the East Los Angeles community.”Purchase publication
