She worked as a secretary and administrative assistant during those years and in between having her three children. They divorced after 18 years of marriage.
In meeting her second husband, Joe Smiga, she found her soulmate and true life partner. They have both encouraged each other to grow and change. Joe coached Linda to start her own business which she ran for 23 years until she retired and to take art lessons. She started her art studies in her late 50’s and is inspired by hiking in beautiful New England as well as by Biblical verses and images. Her artwork can be seen on her website and blog. As a poet Linda creates visual images and emotions with words. As an artist, she tries to connect with the essence of the image aesthetically and spiritually.

Joe continues his writing and his books are available on his website as well as through the Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites. They have recently purchased mountain bikes and are enjoying cycling on the local hiking trails around Manchester, New Hampshire. They also hike in the White Mountains which inspire more of Linda’s paintings and poems.
