Linda Brant is a visual artist and clinical psychologist based in Orlando, Florida. Through sculpture, photography, community-based and public art projects, Brant explores ways of honoring and memorializing animals that are not typically regarded as grievable. Brant’s work can be found in Margo DeMello’s text, Mourning Animals (2016), Antennae: The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture (Summer 2017) and the Journal of Public Space (2020). She has received two creativity grants from the Culture & Animals Foundation, partnering with Hartsdale Pet Cemetery in New York to build a permanent monument dedicated To Animals We Do Not Mourn.
