Linda Loeschen grew up in New Jersey and was trained at Parsons School of Design
in New York City. She pursued a short career in interior design before deciding
to move west for skiing and an outdoor life style. It was here that she met her
husband, who breeds American Quarter Horses on a small ranch outside of Aspen,
Colorado. Now they’re considered longtime locals!
Using the watercolor skills she acquired at Parson's, Linda began drawing and
painting the things that surround her - the ranching lifestyle gives her plenty
of subject matter. The house is full of saddles, tack, denim jackets, cowboy
boots and hats hanging from deer antler racks - much of the regalia that appears
in her work. And, of course, horses, cowboys, children and fabulous flowers and
landscapes are everywhere. Her fresh approach to these subjects is very popular
and she is represented in collections nationwide.
Although much of her inspiration comes from right outside her front door, she
also travels throughout the west to rodeos, roundups and other events
photographing the western lifestyle and gathering new ideas for her paintings.
Linda also gives lectures, demonstrations and workshops throughout the Rocky
Mountain Region. Her paintings, prints and cards are offered in several
galleries in Colorado, Arizona and Vermont.
Articles about her art have appeared in Art of the West, Southwest Art, Art
Talk, Art Trends, Western Horseman, U.S. Art
Linda Loeschen is also a signature member of the Western Academy of Women
Artists (Arizona) and Women Artists of the West (California). She received her
latest honor at the prestigious American Academy of Women Artists, Signature
Show, at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, Wickenburg, Arizona where her
piece was awarded BEST WATERCOLOR and BEST OF SHOW(1997).
“Life is so short I wish I could paint faster to capture all those special
moments like the splash of light on the snow, the lengthening shadows at the end
of the day or the cocky tilt of a cowboy’s hat. Every day there is something
new, something fresh, something to paint.”
