Linda Yurgensen (b. 1958) is a self-taught artist living on Vancouver Island who paints primarily in acrylics and oil.
Having grown up in Nova Scotia in an artistic family, she learned very early on that she had a love for art. Always drawing as a child she advanced to painting as a young adult but with the responsibilities of a growing family put art aside until just a few short years ago.
Since that time Linda has been growing as an artist and painting has been part of her daily routine.
In her home studio Linda creates works that are full of saturated color and light and heavy with texture that has become her trademark.
Light, color and composition are all vital elements in her work.
Linda's work has been included in many private collections throughout the United States and Canada and her work and painting process has been included in a book published by Walter Foster entitled "The Art of Painting in Acrylic" in 2013.
Linda is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
