Linda is formally trained as a traditional, contemporary artist. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in printmaking in 1993. Upon graduating, she worked for several years as a Digital Painter at Industrial Light + Magic, a special effects division of LucasFilm. It was there that she developed her expertise in digital art working on such films as Men in Black, Starship Troopers and on commercials for corporations such as Canada Dry and Saturn Cars. Her digital painting helped to earn ILM a Clio award for animation for the Saturn Electric Car commercial in 1997. Prior to getting her B.F.A. degree, Linda worked as a professional photographer and at one of the top Design Firms in San Francisco, Primo Angeli.
Today, Linda works out of her studio in Boulder, Colorado creating rich, colorful oil pastel and acrylic still lifes, digital art and acrylic dog portraits. Last year, one of her oil pastels was selected in a National Competition at Artisans Gallery in Mill Valley, California. Her digital illustration work in 2003 earned her a merit award from the National Headache Foundation in Chicago for an illustration depicting a migraine headache sufferer.
