Linda Erfle explores the essence of her subjects through the unifying elements of value, shape, edges and color; striving to convey how truly extraordinary the ordinary is which surrounds us. Possessing a long-time interest in art, Linda has had the opportunity to seriously focus on painting since the early 90’s, applying watercolor or oil to render paintings in a representational style.

Since completing numerous college Art classes at San Jose State University and Cosumnes River College, Linda has gone on to study with Anita Wolff, Jill Figler, Ken Potter, Dale Laitinen, Jan Kunz, Judi Betts, Cheng-Khee Chee, Jane Hofstetter, Alvaro Castagnet & Jeannie McGuire.
