Linda Miele has been a professional working artist for thirty-five plus years. With experience in multiple medias, she is primarily a fabrication artist and metalsmith. She has worked extensively with children over the years, focusing on self confidence and self esteem, enabling them to come out of their artistic experience with a feeling of success. She creates a positive working environment in which children learn how to work together and maintain a friendly and collaborative workspace. Before working in the public school system as a substitute teacher, Linda studied at the Museum Of Fine Arts School in Boston. Here, she learned metalsmithing, stone cutting, and body sculpting. After finishing her studies, Linda began working in the jewelry industry. She opened her jewelry store Phoenix Rising which became a successful business for many years until she permanently closed it to take care of her newborn son. In Linda’s art classes, she teaches children not only social skills such as group participation, but also helps each child become their own individual artist, allowing them to express themselves in their own, unique, way. As she often says “The overall point of art is not the finished product, but the journey you have along the way.”
