Linda Lillegraven received her BA in art from San Diego State University in 1970, and a BS in zoology in 1972. She earned an MS 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 paint the high, open country that she loves. Her work is in numerous public and private collections around the West. She is represented by Big Horn Galleries, Cody, Wyoming and Tubac, Arizona, and Wild Horse Gallery in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
