Linda Barretta is a Sonoma County based artist living and working in her native town of Healdsburg California, where she creates vibrant oil paintings that pay homage to the picturesque landscapes that are brought to life with lively colors and textured compositions.
Barretta's long professional carrier was inspired by the many teachers and mentors that have guided her through the early years of work. Alongside of these influential groups of artists and workshops, her art education has been self directed. Her paintings today are the result of many hours in the field painting from life, after being introduced to the plein air colorist tradition. 
Barretta's paintings are  on display at Upstairs Gallery in Healdsburg, California and and also shown at Linda Barretta Studio and Gallery.
