Linda Erfle, NWS, WW, AWS

WASH is excited to announce the juror for our 2018 Annual Open Show, Linda Erfle. Linda Erfle

Linda Erfle explores the essence of her subjects through the unifying elements of value, shape, edges and color; striving to convey how truly extraordinary the ordinary is which surrounds us. Possessing a long-time interest in art, Linda has had the opportunity to seriously focus on painting since the early 90’s, applying watercolor or oil to render paintings in a representational style.

Linda is continually amazed at the vast variety of techniques to be explored with water-based mediums and knows she will be a student, always.

Linda Erfle

She has completed numerous college Art classes at San Jose State University and Cosumnes River College and gone on to study with Anita Wolff, Jill Figler, Ken Potter, Dale Laitinen, Jan Kunz, Judi Betts, Cheng-Khee Chee, Jane Hofstetter, Alvaro Castagnet, Jeannie McGuire and Qiang Huang.
