Linda Denmas was raised in Ohio and moved to California in her 20s. She graduated from Cuesta College with an AA in fine arts. It was her dream to continue in the fine arts, but she decided to raise her family first. Now she spends her time with her husband, Joe, and riding her horse while pursuing her love of painting.
Her work is a balance of realism and abstraction. She finds great inspiration in the complex duality of horses – peaceful but full of energy and power. The western way of life has also contributed greatly to the look of her work; depictions of ranchers, rodeos, and cattle also define her work. The style she paints in is a balance of realism and stylism, bordering more heavily on the realistic aspect.
