Linda Fitzgerald [Certified Visual Artist – Fort Collins, CO]
Linda Fitzgerald is a Side Arts Certified Visual Artist from Fort Collins, CO.
Linda Fitzgerald was born in the Hudson Valley area of New York State and has been a Fort Collins resident since 1988. Before settling in Colorado, Linda’s path took her to San Francisco and Santa Fe where her passion for both visual and culinary art began to blossom.
In San Francisco, Linda befriended nationally acclaimed sculptress Ruth Cravath Wakefield and fine art painter Charles Farr. Both inspired and influenced Linda on her creative journey. In 1978, Linda moved to New Mexico where she had the honor of working as a Companion/Chef for Georgia O’Keeffe at Ms. O’Keeffe’s Abiquiu home. There were many conversations on the subject of creativity. Linda took to heart the advice Ms. O’Keeffe gave her, “Paint the way you paint! Don’t allow others to tell you how your painting should look. Instructors want you to paint like them, but then it’s not your work, it’s theirs’.”
