Linda Jaekel is an abstract artist living near me in Ithaca, New York. Her work has a lot of texture, which she achieves by using various tools other than brushes to paint with.
Linda grew up in the San Francisco and New York City areas and has been making art since she was a young child. She won her first art contest at the age of five from the San Francisco Chronicle.
Linda says, "I explore the ways of creating a peaceful beauty out of chaos, but I leave a portion of chaos for the viewer to use to create their own story. "
