My name is Linda Manne. I've lived in Southern California most of my life, and have always had a passion to become an artist; being partly inspired by my Father; who was a very accomplished commercial artist. After many years of combining his expert mentoring, along with my own self-studies; pursuing an art career became a natural evolution for me.
Besides specializing in realism and portraits over the past 25+ years, my portfolio has expanded to include a wide range of works, from simple line art to detailed art illustrations. I especially enjoy illustrating children's books; allowing me to have fun, stirring up imaginations and bringing story characters to life!
I seize every new project with a desire to achieve my clients goals and deadlines. Always motivated to provide art that will touch others with a feel-good mood or emotion; that needs no explanation.
I use various mediums; such as watercolors, acrylics, pastels, charcoals, as well as graphite pencils and ink.
