Linda Benenati studied art at San Jose State in the late 60’s, but ended up with a degree in English. After college, she pursued a career in graphics and writing in the tech industry. Consequently, she loves the interplay of images, words, and titles.
Over the years, she has worked in many different media: oil and acrylic painting, found object and papier mâché sculpture, and mixed media collage. A few years ago, she ventured into encaustic painting which just might be her all-time favorite medium with its vibrancy and versatility. She now considers herself almost exclusively an encaustic artist.
Linda’s art can be seen and purchased at a number of Bay Area locations including: Frank Interiors (Los Gatos), Vine Life (Saratoga), Triton Art Museum gift shop (Santa Clara), and Iron Dog (Fremont).
She continues to be featured during the year at Studio Gallery (San Francisco), Collector Art Gallery (Berkeley) and Paharo Valley Arts Council (Watsonville). Past and upcoming shows are listed on her site.
