Capturing a moment in time and preserving it for “always” is my goal. I have chosen photography and painting as a way of doing this. My hopes are that others, too, will see the value, beauty, and appreciation of this moment.

Linda DiRosa grew up in New England where she has always admired the rich colorful landscapes. She represents this influence in many of her paintings. She moved to CA where she pursued her interest in art and achieved a Fine Arts Degree. She began additional studies at MiraCosta College, where she completed classes in ceramics, stained glass, calligraphy, photography, and life drawing, and attended many workshops with notable instructors. Always with a pen, pencil, or brush in hand, she has turned to various media throughout the years to fulfill her artistic nature. She was commissioned on Camp Pendleton to redesign and paint wall motifs for several base clubs, and even a swimming pool bottom! Linda continued her art pursuit and has been continuously enrolled in art classes ever since. She likes to paint landscapes and ocean scenes. She has also been commissioned to paint portraits of animals and people. Today Linda continues to paint in watercolor but has been known to occasionally switch back to oil painting-her first love. Linda enjoys traveling and focusing on local scenery and subjects, capturing what she sees in photographs and paintings. She is an active board member at the COAL (Carlsbad/Oceanside Art League) where she exhibits and sells her paintings. She also enjoys creative gardening and as a Rosarian has won many ribbons and trophies in Nationwide competitions. Linda has two daughters –who also have an interest in the creative art field. Linda visits them often and has many photos and paintings of the areas in which they live. She also has three entertaining grandchildren who are often subjects in her paintings. Originals and prints are available for purchase; please email Linda for more information and prices.
