Linda Nykolaychuk grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan and studied at the University of Saskatchewan, where she received a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Art. Her art education has also included various courses and workshops, including pottery and sculpture workshops with Randy Woolsey and Vic Cicansky.

Nykolaychuk's work has been exhibited and is included in collections across Canada and in the United States. She has worked in media including drawing, oils, and watercolours.

In 2003, the Barr Colony Heritage Cultural Centre Board and the City of Lloydminster dedicated the Linday Nykolaychuk Art Studio and Workshop in her honour. Nykolaychuk has also been recognized for her contributions to art education; just two of her many awards include
the 1996 Canadian Society of Art Affiliate Education Award for Excellent in Art Education and the 1999 Saskatchewan Society for Education Through Art Provincial Award for Excellent Achievement in Visual Art Education in Saskatchewan.
