Artist LINDA LOESCHEN, having just graduated from Parsons School of Design in New York City, was just starting a career as an interior designer and renderer when her husband was killed in a skiing accident. Seeking to pursue all her interests, indoor and out, she decided on a move to Aspen with her small daughter. For about 10 years she taught dance and finally entered an art show and became known as an accomplished artist.
She and her husband, Lee, have a small ranch in Emma, Colorado, where their love of horses and western life led her to paint the cowboy hats, boots, and horse themes which she loves and for which she has become best known. “I love the old west fence lines, horses kicking up dust and splashing through water and just about anything weathered and worn. Even more so as this lifestyle is quickly disappearing,” says Linda.
Bears and aspen trees have gained “favorite subject” status in her recent work, usually done in her favorite medium of watercolor. But she has begun to experiment in acrylics and mixed media to the delight of her fans and supporters. She continues to exhibit in prominent shows and has won numerous awards and accolades for her work.
