Linda Jaekel

Born in San Francisco, CA

Lives & works in Ithaca, NY


 I  learned to paint from my mother who would take her children up to a nearby hill in the countryside to paint . I won my first art contest at age six from The San Francisco Examiner. I continued to paint on my own and consider myself a self-taught artist 


In 2000, I decided to move to Ithaca to pursue my art.  I started painting abstract paintings inspired by the expressionists and impressionists. I  showed paintings at shows and cafes and sold them locally and online. I also received  a Saltonstall award. The people who  bought my paintings found something nourishing in them perhaps like a song you want to hear over and over.   

In March 2023, i went back into the studio and have some new paintings to show in the New Works section.  

Thank you for visiting my site!.
