Linda Fitzgerald born in the Hudson Valley area of New York State, has been a Fort Collins resident since 1988. Before settling in Colorado, Linda’s path took her to the San Francisco Bay area and to Santa Fe NM where her passion for both Visual Art and Culinary Art began to blossom.
In San Francisco, Linda befriended nationally acclaimed sculptress, Ruth Cravath Wakefield and Fine Art Painter, Charles Farr, both of whom inspired and influenced Linda on her creative journey.
In 1978, Linda moved to New Mexico. Where she had the honor of working as a ‘’Companion/Chef” for Georgia O’Keeffe, at Ms. O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu home. There where many conversations on the subject of creativity. Linda took to heart the advise Ms. O’Keeffe gave her…‘paint the way you paint! Don’t allow others to tell
you how your painting should look. Instructors want you to paint like them, but then it’s not Your work….it’s theirs’…
