About Me

My photo
I've been an artist my whole life and have had so many exciting art related jobs, which makes me kinda of a jack of a bunch of trades. I'm also college grad with a BFA and went to the High School of Performing & Visual Arts here in Houston. Visit my shop at Etsy and I promise you'll most likely receive a Smile to take with you! I decided to mention that about 10 years ago I was on chemo for 2 years. The chemo worked, but left me with other Heath issues, such as a case of Fibro which left me with having to get disability.Sad news, since I had a great career, that I can not work anymore. With my Faith and determination, I am determined to still do my art. My art gives me inspiration and thank you God! Oh, and please follow my blog! I'd love to have yall join me in my show and tells and also would love to hear what yall have to show and tell!:)

Visual Smiles Gallery

This being my first entry, I must say that I stay really busy with my Flickr page (http://Flickr.com/photos/VisualSmilesGallery) and especially my shop on Etsy (http://lindagj.etsy.com/) . I am an artist of mixed media & when you enter my etsy shop you will find whimsical fun art with dogs, angels, fish, sculptures & prints of my featured feline, Miss Peanut Jones, cards and magnets, as well as illustrations of differerent subjects! On my Flickr, I just have fun showing other people's art work, my own, and pets I love, along with some "show off myself" things about my art featured elsewhere. I do a lot of Treasuries for Etsy featuring Houston artists and post them in my Flickr! I also enjoy doing art festivals, my favorite being the First Saturday's Market in the Heights. I don't take pictures of myself much on those but have done quite a few fests. I will say, I don't visit here often as my art production keeps me very busy! So you can keep up with me mainly through Flickr and Etsy. I joined a Texas Team on Etsy and also a mini team here in Houston called the Artisans of Houston. I met these talented people through Etsy & through festivals! I hope yall will visit my sites often to see what I'm up to as I keep producing. The next fairs I'm doing is one in Katy on March 28, 2009 at The Village at Old Katy 1512 Ave. C. You may call them at 281-391-4480 to find out more details and the next one will be the Bellaire Artisan Festival & Spring Market on April 18, 2009. Their location is 4800 - 5000 blocks of Bellaire Blvd. on the esplanade of Paseo Park!
I am new to doing blogs, but you have to start somewhere! Right? :)
