Hi! Thanks for your interest in my work! My name is Linda Shantz, and I've been drawing animals (mostly horses) since I could hold a crayon.
I have a soft spot for Border Collies and off-track Thoroughbreds, with a barn full of the latter (not all mine!) and a silly new black and white puppy who keeps me smiling.
My art education isn't a formal one. instead, I've spent hours drawing and painting. Hours in the barn, interacting and watching.
I love to study anatomy, but more than that, I love studying quirks and mannerisms, conversations and personalities. I don't want to just paint beautiful creatures; I want to capture the part of them that touches our souls.
If you'd like to read about my more formal credentials (awards and accomplishments) please check out my CV on my website. https://www.lindashantz.com/cv
