Art Brokerage: Linda Kyser Smith American Artist: b. 1949. Linda Kyser-Smith has studied with many of the artists she most admires - among them four presidential portraitists and Milt Kobayashi, who taught her many of the color and composition techniques so evident in her style today. Linda's constant experimentation and exploration of various printing and painting mediums has added depth to her body of work. Over time these artistic skills have merged with her own personality, energy, compassion and sense of fun. Linda has worked and studied her craft in Spain, France, Italy, Japan, Indonesia and the American Southwest, which she now calls home. Linda Kyser-Smith is currently exhibited in distinguished galleries and private collections around the world and is included in the permanent displays at the Montgomery Museum of Fine Art in Alabama and the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame in Fort Worth, Texas. Her awards include the Gold Medal for Oil Painting in the Knickerbocker Artists 45th Grand International Classic, the prestigious West Coast Award from the American Pastel Society, and most recently a Special Recognition Award from the Portrait Society of America in the 2002 International Portrait Competition."
