…a little history…

  1. DSC01345

If you are new to my website, here’s a quick summary:

After 32 years as a classroom teacher,

 I QUIT in 2012 to be an artist.

(I’m sure people thought I was CRAZY!!)

I made stamped metal necklaces…


even in Braille!


And bracelets…


But my focus became decorated cookies…



purple and gray bridal

along the way I decided to teach cookie art, and had HUNDREDS of students!


I even tried my hand at artistically decorated cakes…)

and sometimes combined cookies and cake!

Bergens cake1

But the time came to paint on a more permanent material!

I started with watercolor on paper...

Gold painting commission2

You may remember last fall I painted

30 paintings of Huntington in 30 days!

Cabell County Courthouse paintingI

I had my first official art show in December

where I sold my original 30/30 paintings, prints, and 2016 calendars.

It was a BLAST!!

This summer I’m painting with acrylic paint

(which is similar to oil paint but dries faster

and is easier to clean up!!)

I’m painting on 1″ deep canvases…



Version 2

and old wood…




I’m having my second official art show in July…

I’m soooo excited!!!

  1. Linda, thank you for the history of your art career. I have always loved your work from the dangly earrings you designed back when we were teaching together to your beautiful artwork of the hometown I grew up in, Huntington. I am enjoying watching the barn wood paintings appear daily as you post them on FB. I cannot decide which flower painting is my favorite. It may possibly be the daisy painting, but you have not painted a barn wood daffodil painting yet…so…..I will wait…to decide. Continue the inspirational work, Linda. I love the way you shine through your creative art. 🙂
