This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A wildlife painter living in Bemidji, Minnesota, Linda Walker does realistic depictions of animals in landscape---deer, bison, wolves.   In order to get close to wolves, she worked on a ranch in Montana where the owners left her in a five-acre enclosure that a wolf inhabited.

She was born in Ogden, Utah and as a child moved with her family to Washington state and California.  Her interest in painting began in childhood, and continued through school which included earning a science and art degree from San Diego State College, now San Diego State University.

To earn money to attend college, she worked for Western Airlines as a stewardess for several years and then extended that employment for a total of 21 years.  On a flight in 1970 from California to Mexico, she met her future husband, Greg Walker, who became a stunt coordinator in Hollywood.  They married 18 months later in 1971.

During her years with the airline, she continued painting, ever having in mind her love of the outdoors and the many times she rode horses and hiked in the California Sierras.  She also did volunteer work with the Exotic Feline Breeding Compound in Rosamond, California.

In 1990, she and Greg moved to Minnesota where she focused on her painting career.  However, she was sidelined for two years by treatments for breast cancer.   As public service, she donated  paintings to victims of Hurricane Katrina of any subject of their choice, which included the image of a family's pet bull name "Rock and Roll".  Because her husband had been a bull rider, she had many photos from which to work.

A very happy part of Linda Walker's life occurred in June, 2005, when she was reunited with a daughter she had put up for infant adoption in 1961 and the daughter's children and grandchildren.  Of receiving the phone call that made the connection, Walker said: "I cried.  I cried froma depth I never knew I had."
