Personal Quote: "Be bold and mighty things will follow" - Anthony Hopkins
Dive into the fantasy world of Linda R. Herzog. Linda sees detail visions of her creations in color, movement, and sound in her dreams as she sleeps. With excitement of her visions she often wakes in the middle of the night to do thumbnail sketches of what she believes will be a great painting. She often returns in a half-sleep state and to finish out the details. Linda's childhood is her muse along with the simple things in life. You can see hints of inspiration from several artists that have moved her.

Linda grew up in Utah and always felt an ardent closeness to nature and animals. She was drawing animals in detail at an early age and has never stopped. Her first oil painting was at the age of 9 and knew that was what she always wanted to be doing. Encouraged by her parents in middle school she took adult night oil painting classes with her mother and grandmother. Linda took many art classes in high school. After that Linda is self-taught.

Moving to Southern California in 1986, Linda received inspiration from the ocean and started painting marine life. Then in 1998 found total joy in painting wildlife in a realm of unique unreal settings. Linda calls her paintings "Wildlife Fantasy".

Linda's paintings have been displayed throughout Southern California, New York City, Tokyo Japan, Maui Hawaii and Chicago. Her paintings were in the Universal feature film "Dragonfly" staring Kevin Costner, and are in the collection of Toyota Corporation. Art Business News showed Linda's work in their "Trendsetters" section of the magazine.
