One of the featured artists at this years Laguna Beach Festival of Arts is wildlife artist Linda Karagozian.
Linda was born in Wiesbaden, Germany and moved to California as a child where she began a life long passion for all animals and wildlife.
Motivated by her love of animals and her commitment to preservation Linda’s art at this years festival will focus on the preservation of all wildlife, from the thousands of elephants being killed each year for their ivory tusks, to the eroding of our environment.
With oil and canvas Linda hopes to bring attention to the plight of animals worldwide, from wild animals exploited for profit, to entire species going extinct. According to Linda, “After viewing one of my paintings if one person becomes an advocate for animal rights, I know I will have made a difference.”
Many thousands of species are at risk of disappearing forever in the coming decade.
“Humanity can no longer stand by in silence while our wildlife are being used, abused and exploited. It is time we all stand together, to be the voice of the voiceless before it is to late.”
– Paul Oxton
