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!:)

I'm having a Contest!!!

Please read my instructions carefully. I love that yall want one of my pieces, but in order to win, I need yall to follow the steps to have a chance! I may even have 3 winners if I get enough people to participate!
Yes, I've decided to have a contest and yall can have your choice of one of 3 of my pieces! All you have to do is:
1) Tell me which one you want & why.
2) Post my contest on your blog, facebook and twitter with my shop http://LindaGJ.Etsy.com. & let me know about it, so I can see it.
3)Tell me what item you like best in my shop and leave me a comment about why!
I will pick out your name with the best comments and published posts you make. You may comment more than once as well! I will have to have at least 10 people enter for anyone to win. I'll pick the winner on the 25th of February, which is an extended date!So far I am getting the favorite as Peanut Love on canvas as a fave. I can only give one as a prize but if you don't win, I will be willing to give those of you that have followed all the rules a Peanut like that at half the very low cost, because I can make more, yet none of them will be exactly alike as they are originals. I just had to add that because I am terrible at picking one winner if all of yall pick the same piece as a fave. I may have to put yall's names in a hat or have my kitty Kenzie pick the winner!
Good Luck!!!
Here are my choices:


  1. Oooo, we LOVE contests! We like the Love Tuxie Kittie. We think it looks alot like Pandora! Thanx...

  2. The love kittie is adorable. My close friend has a sick Persian and I know this will cheer her.

  3. I love the Love kitty! I was looking at your shop last night and like all your Love paintings with Peanut and also the dogs. Cute, cute, cute!

  4. Oh Linda, where do I start? I've been admiring your work for quite some time!

    If I were lucky enough to win, it would be the Kitty LOVE painting. You know your Peanut reminds me of my Yingy...so cute!

    My favorite item in your shop, where do I start? My thought is that I would love to own your book. What a talented woman and a wonderful friend!


  5. Replying to your comment, we'd LOVE the Tuxie Love plaque. It is adorable and is a look alike to our Pandora. We posted your link today!
