A Southern California native, Linda grew up with equal passions for nature and art. Becoming a professional landscape artist was inevitable. Essentially self-taught in the basics of oil painting, she has been painting most of her life. She has worked relentlessly in the field and studio, as well as study with contemporary masters Ralph Oberg, Matt Smith, and Kathleen Dunphy, to perfect her craft.
Linda’s style of painterly realism captures the special feeling of a place and celebrates all the colors, textures, and moods of nature. In particular, the way sunlight plays on a surface, be it a mountain range or a single stone, will capture her heart and demand to be painted. She finds much of her inspiration in the yet unspoiled landscapes of the Western U.S., especially the mountains, deserts, and coast of California.
An award-winning artist, Linda’s work has been included in many national juried exhibitions, invitational museum shows, and cherished private art collections throughout the Western United States. Her home and studio are in Claremont CA.
