I have a B.A. and M.A. in Art / Education with a concentration in Painting and Photography, which I earned from Brooklyn College. I discovered my passion for art during my childhood, and involved myself with painting, drawing and other crafts at an early age. I pursued a career as an Elementary School Art teacher and taught in Brooklyn and Staten Island Public Schools for thirty years. In addition to teaching art classes, I instructed in the Studio in the Schools program for students and the Guided Reading through Art program for School Staff. I also created all of the scenery for musical productions, and painted murals for the display at one of my schools.

Following my retirement, I returned to my true passion of creating inspired paintings, many of which are featured on this website.

Additionally, I am currently teaching an Acrylic Painting class at the United Federation of Teachers in Manalapan, NJ. I also recently created an Art program for residents of the Renaissance at Cranbury Crossing, NJ where I instructed Painting. I am the recipient of the Edith Potter Achievement Award for service.

Paintings By Linda Collections

Painting is a passion for communicating your emotions and thoughts. I communicate my inner self by painting landscapes, seascapes, people, animals, interesting architecture and fantasy. The paintings in my collections reflect my imaginative and experiential view of photographs that I've taken. I aim to tell a story of my mind through my artwork by altering reality to create a whimsical world.
