My name is Linda Manne and I reside in Southern California.
For 20+ years, my portfolio has expanded from many art projects, both free-lance and commercially. It's simple; art is my passion - and it's my goal to be able to touch imaginations, by blending detailed art with vibrant colors; creating a mood or emotion, without explanation.
My artistic journey began at a very young age from having a Father who was a very accomplished commercial artist.Thus many years later, combining my Dad expert guidance, mentoring and my own self-studies; my ensuing art career became a natural evolution for me. I pursue each new art project with a professional commitment and work hard so as to achieve the desired outcome and deadline set by my client.
Besides realism and painting life-like portraits, I also, can easily provide a wide range of works, from simple line illustrations to detailed, colorful children's book illustrationsI I use various mediums such as watercolors, acrylics, pastels, charcoals, as well as graphite pencils and ink.
