Linda Israel’s first memories are centered around her passion and love for animals. Feeling spiritually connected to the animals that come into her life, she has come to realize that being in nature and peacefully observing animals is what makes her feel most connected to herself and the planet. Inspired to bring their souls alive on canvas, Linda paints animals up close with bold strokes and bright colors from a soulful place within herself. As a reminder to honor her free spirit and wild sense of color, she often recalls one of her favorite quotes,
“Art is not a photo of life, but a feeling of life!”
