Linda DuPuis-Rosen
Wildlife in Watercolor


Linda Dupuis-Rosen has been creating art for over 20 years. Although skilled in many media, she has focused her efforts in the unique area of wildlife art in watercolor. Over the last 8 years, she has sold art and donated her time and artwork to a number of wildlife conservation efforts around the world. These organizations include (1) Wildlife Conservation Network, an organization that supports independent, community-based wildlife conservation efforts around the world; (2) Cheetah Conservation Botswana in Africa; (3) Snow Leopard Conservancy, led by Rod and Darla Hilliard; (4) Small Cat Conservation Alliance, led by Dr. Jim Sanderson;

(5) Wild Cat Education and Conservation Fund, located in the Bay area of California that provides educational programs to schools regarding wild cats; (6) EARS, Elephants of Africa Rescue Society; (7) Ethiopian Wolf Conservation Program and many other organizations. More information on these organizations can be found in the "Contacts" section.

Linda has traveled extensively worldwide to visit the natural habitats of the wildlife that she paints. The feeling and emotion that are evoked from her paintings come from her experiencing first hand the sights, sounds, and smells of the local terrain. Many of her paintings are based on original photographs taken by her husband, David Rosen. Her travels have included multiple trips to southern Africa including the rich wildlife preserves and parks in and around the Okavango Delta in Botswana, Kruger Park in South Africa, Etosha Park in Namibia, and regions along the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe and Zambia. She has also spent time in South and Central America including the Pantanal region of Brazil and the rain forests of Peru, Bolivia, Costa Rica, and Belize.

Her most recent project is in collaboration with artist Rochelle Mason. Together, we are showcasing, in an international traveling exhibit, all the 36 wild cats of the world. Dr. Jim Sanderson, of The Small Cat Conservation Alliance, has helped provide references of several new reclassifications of wildcat subspecies so that our wild cats are properly identified and fully represented.

Linda’s goal is to share her interpretation of the beauty in nature and to help bring an awareness to the public of what our role, as human beings, is towards our environment and wildlife. We need to realize our responsibilities towards maintaining our connection to the environment and to help prevent the extinction of any species. Everyone can make a difference in the world, big or small. If we each choose just one animal, one plant, one neighborhood, one animal shelter, or whatever moves you and commit whatever possible in time or financial support, we WILL make a positive difference.
