Linda Luisi acquired Old Master painting techniques at the School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (BFA Degree Tufts University). Her work is known for depth and dimension. “My goal is to involve the viewer with the historic building, plus, the era itself. I see the vintage characters as time-travelers who venture from the Inn into present-day Ramona. My children, Ian and Alexi Foster, were models for the two vintage characters.” There are 7 hearts hidden in the mural in honor of the 7 members of the H.E.A.R.T. Mural Project Board. Linda is a muralist and fine art instructor from Carlsbad.
