Linda Lillegraven received her BA in art from San Diego State University in 1970, and a BS in zoology in 1972. She earned a master’s degree in biology from the University of Utah in 1975. A summer doing research in an isolated corner of Utah convinced her that she wanted more than anything to paint the great open landscapes of the West. Living in Laramie, Wyoming provides infinite opportunities to see and paint the high, open country she loves.
Her work is in numerous public and private collections around the West and beyond. She is represented by Ann Korologos Gallery in Basalt, Colorado, Deselms Fine Art in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. She also participates in the Buffalo Bill Art Show and the Coors Western Art Show.
