Linus Woods is a Dakota/Ojibway artist from the Long Plain First Nation in Southern Manitoba, where he was born. While he has taken a few art and Native studies courses at Brandon University, and has studied with artists such as Jane Ash Poitras, he is largely self-taught. Woods sees his paintings as expressions and extensions of his spiritual journey. His art; acrylic, oil and collage on canvas; are subtle works featuring pastel pallets and geometric shapes and often include collaged images. Linus Woods is a winner of the Peace Hills Trust Company Art Competition and his work is in the Peace Hills Trust Collection and in a number of other collections including Winnipeg Children's Hospital, Long Plain First Nation, Curtis Joony Productions, Brandon University and Mae Moore.
