Artist and Author Statement

Artist Statement – Linda H. Feinberg

I began the study of art later in life while running my own home-based business (Z-Best Bookkeeping) in Manchester, NH. I had been writing for many years by that time (many poems and articles published), my children were grown, and I was looking for another creative challenge. My husband encouraged me to take art classes and try something new.

As a poet I create visual images and emotions with words. As an artist, I try to connect with the essence of the image aesthetically and spiritually. I work in acrylics, water mixable oils, pen and ink, colored pencil, watercolor and oil pastel. Locally I have taken classes with wonderful teachers. I am inspired by hiking and cycling in our beautiful state of New Hampshire as well as by the verses and images from our Ta’nach (Old Testament - Torah, Prophets, Writings) and liturgy.

I sold my bookkeeping business in April of 2011 and I am continuing my art studies. I am actively working with acrylic paints now. I focus on landscapes, flowers and occasionally animals. I am thoroughly enjoying my retirement. I spent 8 weeks in Israel during the winter of 2012, traveling and volunteering. In 2013 I traveled to Costa Rica and also took a trip to Utah and its magnificent national parks. You can see my artwork from these places in the galleries on my website.

I've continued with my writing as well. Since my poetry books are currently out of print, I decided to make them available as e-books instead.
