About Linda Olsen
There are no upcoming events
“As an artist, I strive to continually grow and experiment with
different techniques and mediums. Originally from California,
I studied fine art at San Diego State University and was influenced
by my father who was an industrial designer, inventor and avid sailor...
Sailing and exploring the ocean was a big part of my early years.
In the last decade I have been fortunate to have a freestanding
art studio in my back yard where I can escape to paint. I listen to
music, read and work on my paintings without technology interferring.
I strive to create on canvas, some romance/poetry in whatever I paint
--whether it be mermaids, marsh scenes, beach landscapes, underwater
life or still life paintings."
