In 1996, she completed her Master’s Degree in Art History, specializing in Mexican Art History. Linda is currently a full-time art instructor at the Tohono O'odham Community College.

"My work often combines images from the lexicon of art history with direct observations of nature. These combinations of subjects create visual allegories that focus on our current cultural relationship to nature. Thus, the primary concern is an examination of the relationship between humans, animals, and the landscape."
