About the Artist

Linda Yoshizawa

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Linda attended Pomona College in Claremont, California where she received her BA in studio art. She studied printmaking at Santa Monica City College as well as the UCLA Extension. As a member of a serigraph workshop in Pacific Palisades she produced limited edition silkscreen prints for several years. After moving to the San Francisco Bay Area she joined the Lafayette Printmaking Workshop where she started experimenting with water-soluble inks to create monotype/collage prints. Linda now works on her own etching press in her studio in San Ramon. She is a member of the California Society of Printmakers and the Los Angeles Printmaking Society.

Linda exhibits her artwork at Valley Art Gallery in Walnut Creek and has artwork in several corporate collections including Kaiser Permanente and El Camino Hospital.

Fine art posters of her artwork have been produced by Image Conscious and Editions Limited.
