Linda Shaffer is the owner of Red Pearl Art.  She is an award winning Southern Nevada artist.  Her sense of humor and passion for the abstract can be seen in her sculpture, mixed media, paintings, prints, jewelry, and designs using recycled materials. She finds the artistic experience tremendously satisfying and takes inspiration from nature, travel and the joy of living.  She always works in a variety of mediums at one time, which satisfies her intense desire to create.  The butterfly is often seen in her work and represents the eternal journey of beauty, beauty often unseen but always present.  She is a graduate of the Gemological Institute of America's Graduate Jeweler program, a founding member and corporate officer of the Fabulous Las Vegas Scribes Calligraphy Society.  A list of recent shows and awards can be found at
