Find some time in your schedule to enjoy Linda's work.

Linda paints in a variety of media, including oil, watercolor and pastel;Linda Derrick's Paintings and her paintings have won awards at the state and local levels.  Her subject matter is often that of nature and landscapes she has experienced firsthand. A number of her paintings reflect scenes from well-known local landmarks, including Holy Hill and the Richfield Historical Park.

Although Linda holds a degree in Human Resources, her passion to paint has led her to pursue dual interests.  After a successful career in HR management, she continues to study painting and exhibit her work.

Linda Derrick's Paintings“My love of painting began in grade school when I first won a scholarship to attend classes at the Milwaukee Art Museum. Over the years, I’ve continued my art studies at Cardinal Stritch and UW-Milwaukee, as well as privately under the guidance of other accomplished artists.  For me, painting has been a life-long journey of enjoyment and continuous growth.”


Linda’s paintings can be seen on display at various locations such as Hartford Library, the Schauer Art Center, Germantown Library, Kingshead Studio (Milwaukee), the Hodgepodge Shop (Hustisford) and Derrick Family Chiropractic Clinic (West Allis). Linda has been the juror for area art exhibits, including  “Art at the Mill,” a fine arts annual event at Richfield Historical Park, and Alverno College Alumnae Art Exhibition.
