Linda Benenati was a technical writer and graphic designer and has worked in diverse artistic media. She ventured into encaustic painting several years ago. The vibrancy and versatility of encaustic wax quickly won her heart. She now works almost exclusively in encaustic and mixed media. Her inspiration might come from a song lyric, a simple idea, a favorite phrase, or a single word. These images evolve into more complex themes or stories, which she expresses through a menagerie of creatures, costumes, and characters. Her work has been shown in private galleries and retail stores in San Jose, Los Gatos, Aptos, Watsonville, San Francisco, and Oakland. She lives in Saratoga and teaches private encaustic lessons in her home studio.
