Linda and Opie O'Brien are full-time mixed media artists who enjoy pushing the envelope through their imaginative use of metal, organic, recycled, and found materials. Their work, which includes jewelry, books, assemblage, collage, dolls, masks, and more, has been featured in numerous books, magazines, galleries, group and solo shows, museum gift shops and private collections.
Opie, an artist and musician, attended the School of Visual Arts and also studied at Pratt Institute in New York City. On the musical side of the coin, he played Carnegie Hall and Madison Square Garden with the Raspberries and Tommy James. His approach to art is disciplined, structured, and meticulous.
Linda, on the other hand, is self-taught. Her philosophy is "no rules, no restrictions." Her raw, free-spirited style and nontraditional techniques define her as a true "outsider" artist. She has written feature articles for several publications, including Belle Armoire and Art Doll Quarterly magazines.
