As an art student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, she majored in theater, later switching to fine art. Linda's specialty at UW-M School of Fine Arts was figurative drawing. Her early portraits were figure studies in acrylic on canvas.

In the past, through her association with White Thunder Wolf Trading Company Inc. of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she accepted the challenge of commissioned work on a diverse array of objects, such as buffalo skulls, painted animal portraits on rawhide rattles, buckskin shields and numerous commissioned paintings on rawhide drums.

While living in Sedona, Arizona, she painted traditional yeso retablos, altarpieces and designs in acrylic on rustic furniture for Wolf and Swan Company.

Moving back to Wisconsin in 2004, she continued working with rustic furniture, painting life size portraits of Guadalupe on rustic plank tables, assisting with folk art designs, painting numerous floral/country/ animal thematic elements on shelves, tables and utilitarian objects.

Now, thirty years later, she has returned to her roots. Her most recent works are acrylic figure studies on canvas or board. She is a member of the Wisconsin Alliance of Artists and Craftspeople and exhibits her work with Seven Roads Gallery.
