Linda Kratz's Profile
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an animal illustrator. I went to Parsons in New York and got side tracked into contemporary fine art. No regrets but here I am back to my original ambition. I share my life with a fine menagerie of pets and surround myself with others who do the same. When I do a portrait from a photograph, I aim to capture the spirit, warmth and beauty of the subject beyond the photo. From my pastel drawings, I can make unique jewelry pieces that my clients adore. Also I have made tiles, cards and conformation and performance (my own venue is sheep herding trials) trophies for dog show events. Although I mostly have dogs for subjects, I've captured horses and cats as well.
