Linda Slasberg, Cottonwood Member Since June 2009 Artist Statement I was born and raised and spent most of my life in a suburb of London, England until 1996 when my late husband and I emigrated to the United States.
After overcoming a series of unpleasant events, culminating in January 1998 when my husband passed away from Cancer. Soon after his death I moved down to Rimrock, N. Arizona onto the property we bought together.
Most of my time was spent in reflection seeking Spiritual guidance. It was then that art entered my life; I have always loved art but never imagined I could produce it. I began to design and make beaded jewelery which I took to art shows around Arizona. Then life got in the way again and I changed direction; I started painting in acrylics. Self taught and unorthodox in execution, so much so that sometimes I look at a piece of work and just laugh out loud, but I love it. I paint for me, nobody else. Then I moved into mixed media.
Now I am running my own home based business editing and proofreading for writers and authors. When writers and authors write their manuscripts, they are too close to it emotionally to see errors. Be they grammatical, spelling or simple typos it makes more sense for someone other than the author to read it through and correct/edit their work. That is where I come in.
