LINDA RUIZ LOZITO
My favorite mediums to work with are oil paints and soft pastels. I like the feel and quick interaction of the pastels on the paper and the color and textures of the oil paint on the painting surface. My style has been influenced by the Impressionists and California colorists. I’ve exhibited my work in numerous gallery shows in California.
The primary element of color has been my focus. Color on it's own has energy, emotion and can create a mood. I look for vitality and life in my subject and try to show a feeling of playful enthusiasm in my artwork.
I use texture and shape in the composition help to create movement in a painting.
The primal urge to create art has been a constant thread in my life. I have continued to create art throughout my life, even with other demands, such as my children and family.
For over 20 years I have worked as an Art Director, Illustrator, and Graphic Artist, owner of Wildcat Grrraphics. I've had illustrations / artwork published in numerous publications. I've created illustrative art, textbook illustrations, anatomy & medical illustrations, product drawings, etcetera

I have been a professional graphic artist and an artist for over 30 years. I live with my family in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area near Wildcat Canyon regional park.
I have enjoyed drawing since I was a very young child and have found creating art as a grounding force throughout my life. Art can always provide new challenges and is something that always has endless paths to take you on.
I hope you enjoy the art I've uploaded and I will update this website regularly with my latest drawings and paintings.
Thank you for visiting!
