Linda Kuhlmann

While working on a degree at Morehead State University, I took an art class as an elective, and it sparked my love of art. After working in the field of vocational rehabilitation for several years, I returned to college to pursue my interest in art, and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design and ceramics at Eastern Kentucky University. I worked for a number of years as a graphic designer at Berea College; and now work as a fine artist and graphic designer from my own studio.
