Linda Israel

Capturing the essence of life through the colorful innocence of animals is what brings Linda Israel such joy.  .  “Animals are so in the moment, simple and direct.  They are pure consciousness”.  Linda paints the peaceful, unconditional and simple souls of animals in heart.  Linda has been inspired since she was just 3 years old, when she first started drawing animals.

Using a pallet of vibrant colors, Linda approaches her portraits like the subjects themselves —playfully uninhibited.    Linda studied painting at the University of Colorado-.   Linda has painted for more than 20 years and is enjoying  life in Grand Lake Colorado, painting what she loves, and loving what she paints.
