Linda Paulsen




Linda Paulsen is a crop artist from Hackensack, Minnesota. The fine craftsmanship of her work may be hereditary -- her mother is Lillian Colton -- but the realism of Linda's portraits set the competitive bar even higher. Linda has been entering the State Fair Crop Art competition since 1967.
