Linda Lyke, a Los Angles artist and professor of art at Occidental College, is known for her printmaking, multicolored abstract monotypes, and mixed media work.

She has had 19 one-person shows, and her prints have been juried into 90 national print and drawing exhibitions. She is represented in many private and public collections, including the Ian Potter Museum in Melbourne, Australia, Belfast Print Workshop, Ireland, Texas Tech University, Security Pacific, California, James Jones Collection, Pomona, Brand Library, Glendale, De Cordova Museum, Ma. Her work explores two distinct artistic directions: one that investigates the intuitive process of abstraction, and the other that references a cultural history that reflects on a specific place over time. She received a recent MacArthur Grant to research Megafauna in Kenya. She is President of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society 2017-8.
