Connect with Dr. Linda Carson

“In grad school I learned to cause trouble, which has been more use to me than calculus, French grammar and linear perspective all combined.” Linda Carson has undergraduate degrees in mathematics and in studio art, master’s degrees in fine art and in kinesiology, and a PhD in behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, conducting research in drawing cognition. She is passionate about interdisciplinarity, loves to teach creative thinking, and is seldom seen without her three essential creative tools: her sketchbook, her Blackberry and a cold bottle of Diet Coke. You can reach her at linda@overlapassociates.com.
