From a hilltop studio just north of Hermann, Linda Heck captures the rich colors and textures of Missouri Wine Country in oils and watercolors. After a 26-year teaching career, during which she launched many students into successful careers in art and graphic design, she now focuses her creative energies on paper and canvas. Her numerous commissions include the Gasconade County Courthouse mural project, a 25-foot mural at Hermann Hill, and First Bank calendars and greeting cards, which received nationwide attention.
