| In a recent Southwest Art magazine article, Rose Glaser writes: "Born in Japan, [Linda] Raynolds spent her
early years living in foreign lands such as France and El Salvador, where her father was an economist in the US foreign service. Living
in so many cultures led Raynolds to develop an early interest in anthropology, in which she holds an undergraduate degree from the University
of New Hampshire." Also influenced by her father's interest in primitive and tribal folk art and her mother's liking fondness for 'refined
things,' Raynolds eventually found herself at New York's Art Students League. Currently living in Cody, Wyoming, Raynolds considers Wyoming
her spiritual home. Glaser adds, "The strength of her work lies in its simplicity of form." Raynolds is a member of the Society of Animal
Artists and has two sculptures in the permanent collection of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center.
