Linda Wells, Artist  
 
Linda Wells has been painting and drawing all her life. Born in  
Albuquerque, New Mexico, she attended the University of New Mexico and  
later moved to San Francisco, California, where she attended the San  
Francisco Art Institute and graduated from there with a Bachelor of Fine  
Arts degree. After moving to Boulder, Colorado, she earned an Associates  
degree in Advertising and Graphic Design from the Rocky Mountain College  
of Art and Design. She has worked as a freelance designer and  
illustrator for many years, all the while continuing to paint and enter  
juried shows. Linda's paintings have been exhibited in various juried  
exhibitions throughout the country, and she has won several awards for  
her work.  
 
"I like to create paintings with a sense of drama,  
brought out both by interesting shapes and  
intense colors".  
 
In past years, she has done pencil portraits of both people and  
animals, pen and ink drawings of various subjects, airbrush paintings in  
acrylic, realistic oil paintings, and colored pencil drawings. Her  
favorite medium, however, is transparent watercolor. She finds  
watercolors challenging and fun to work with. She uses her own slides  
and photographs as reference, and her favorite subjects are animals,  
flowers, and people.  
She is a Signature member of the Pikes Peak Watercolor Society, Kansas Watercolor Society,the Southern Colorado Watercolor Society, and the Taos National Society of Watercolorists. 
Linda is currently living in Colorado Springs, Colo. with her daughter Molly.
