Contemporary artist Linda Hellfritsch grew up free-spirited and independent, skateboarding and riding her bicycle in the rural suburban hills of Tustin, CA. She later spent additionally formative years wreaking havoc in the coastal town of San Clemente. In 1989 she moved to Santa Cruz, where she raised her children and lived until 2017. Recently moved to Nebraska, Linda now paints in a beautifully restored studio in a historic building near downtown Omaha.
