Linda Henning is a Pennsylvania born artist living in the amazing Rogue Valley of Oregon. She majored in Fine Art in California and Oregon colleges and spent most of her career in print production printing other artist works.
She was encouraged to get back to her roots in drawing and painting in 2005 and has been working to refine her craft since then. She has attended workshops in Alaska and Oregon studying with working professionals, and most recently, working in classic portraiture.
The purpose of a portrait is to memorialize an image of a loved one for the future. “When I paint a portrait, it is as if I get to know the subject. . My painting of my great Aunt Grace is from a studio photo from the early 1920s. I don’t remember if I had the chance to meet her. Painting it gave me an opportunity to imagine her life." ~ Linda Henning
