About Linda Israel

Just a little About Linda Israel. My name is Linda Israel if you haven’t already guessed since this is the name of my web domain. This web site was a Christmas gift from my wonderful husband Christmas 2004.

I am a native of Oklahoma. I have lived here all of my life except for the very long year I spent in New Jersey. My husband Henry and I have talked about moving away, but I don’t think we could be happy any where else.  We don’t have any children, but as you will find on the photo page we do have 3 critters… These are our babies…

I am very active in Toastmasters and my home club is the Governor’s Club #3031. Being a member of Toastmasters since 1994 I have learned so much! I have become a much better communicator and leader because of Toastmasters. In December 2007 I completed the educational track to earn the title DTM (Distinguished Toastmaster). If you would like to know more about Toastmasters please feel free to email me.

I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. When I was a little girl I made my own doll clothes out of old clothes.  Later my grandmother showed me how to use a sewing machine and I made my first outfit.  I made my prom dress for my SR. Prom, it was a wedding dress pattern but I made it with mint green under ivory lace.  Several years later I found rubber stamping and found something that I really loved that I could share with others..

I also have a love for hot glas. I took a lampwork class several years ago and fell in love with how I could work with glass in the tourch. My very supportive husband helped me get everything I needed to start making my own hot glass. I wish that I had more time to create with hot glass, this is one of my art goals. To have more hot glass creating time.

I hope you will enjoy my web site. I’m sure you will notice changes here and there as I grow as an artist and as I learn more about how to maintain a web site!
