Wish You Were Here - by Linda Moskalyk

Linda Moskalyk

Linda Moskalyk was born in 1958 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She has been drawing and painting her entire life and has taken numerous classes and workshops, including with Graham Flatt, Degan Lindner, Catherine Perehudoff, Cecelia Elizabeth, Kevin Quinlan, David Langevin, Sharon Williams, and Rolf Krohn. In 2006, she attended the Canadian Watercolour Symposium in Calgary, Alberta. Moskalyk has taught drawing, painting, and mixed media to children and adults in numerous venues.

Environmental themes are a focus of Moskalyk's work, which is unsurprising given her work as an arborist. She also credits her upbringing in rural Saskatchewan for giving her and understanding of landscape and plant life. Her landscape paintings and images of trees and other plant life speak to Moskalyk's concern for environmental sustainability and combine art with advocacy. As she writes, “Art can be a catalyst for the appreciation of nature. It is about the beauty and the benefits that trees and other plants provide. It speaks of the landscapes and encourages moments of stillness to take in the colors and patterns of nature. Paintings are not only meant to adorn walls but also to provoke thought and emotion.”

Moskalyk's work has been shown in Saskatchewan and Alberta, including at Saskatoon's Mendel Art Gallery (2008). In 2012, her work will be exhibited in the National Gallery of Costa Rica. In addition to private collections in Canada, the United States, and Costa Rica, Moskalyk's work is represented in the collection of Saskatchewan Government Insurance.

Moskalyk is a member of CARFAC and Prairie River Artists' Group.

Moskalyk lives and paints in both Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and in Costa Rica. Her recent work combines acrylic painting with paper collage.
