Artist Linda Kukuk
I am a life-time resident of the Oklahoma City area, and a self-taught artist. Since the early 1960’s I have participated in numerous art shows, specializing in scratchboard art.

My retirement as Chief of the Commander’s Protocol Office at Tinker AFB in March 2002, has given me more time to pursue my artistic endeavors. Since then, I have been painting mainly in watercolor and have discovered this is definitely my favorite medium. I still continue with scratchwork, but I now use clayboard, which allows me to add watercolor to this traditionally “black and white” medium. I enjoy painting a very wide variety of subjects and consider anything to be fair game for my paper and clayboard.
Being a native Oklahoman of Choctaw ancestry, and having grown up in rural Oklahoma, right next door to rodeo performers, I especially enjoy painting rodeo, cowboy life, and Native American themes.
I am a member of the Oklahoma Art Guild, Edmond Art Association, and Oklahoma Watermedia Association. I've participated in the Festival of Arts in Oklahoma City, as well as the OCCC Arts Festival Oklahoma, Downtown Edmond Art Festivals, Red Earth Art Shows, and Oklahoma Art Guild National Shows – all juried shows.
I am represented by three galleries: The Howell Gallery in Oklahoma City, Simply Oklahoma Gallery, Guthrie, and Indian River Gallery, Desert Passage Shops, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
