I combine my love of music, dance, movement, nature and color when I paint. Many times I am guided by a predominating theme of either a song or a combination of images in nature that give me happiness. I have a slightly scientific bent which I use to explore different implements to use when creating paintings.
With "Spring Dance" I was inspired by the simple beauty of evergreen ferns and used the ferns as a painting implement.
My name is Linda K. Jaekel. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio I .grew up in San Francisco, California and Northern New Jersey. I learned to paint and draw from my mother who took her children out to the cow pastures to paint. I won my first art contest at the age of five from the San Francisco Chnonicle. I was educated at Syracuse University and the University of Chicago. I won the Constance Saltonstall Foundation of the Arts residency award.
