Linda Oszajca has been creating art all her life. She possesses an innate urge to make marks or create "things" from her imagination. Throughout her life, Linda has pursued an artistic career as a Painter, Sculptor, Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Commercial Textile Designer and College Art Teacher. She has a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and an MaEd in Educational Leadership. There have been many influences that have affected Linda's art through the years, but her 35 year residence in Hawai'i has made a lasting impression on her images and the way she expresses herself. The influence of the bright colors, Hawaiian culture and exotic surroundings has had an immense impact on what and how Linda creates. Her art is in many public and private collections in Hawaii, New Zealand and the mainland USA. You can find several of her exotic floral paintings gracing the walls of several hotels and public buildings in Hawaii. Recently, relocating to Las Vegas, Nevada, Ms Oszajca has added desert images to her art expression and continues her life long focus creating portraits for individuals. Always the eclectic, Linda continues to experiment and express herself in a variety of mediums.
