BIOGRAPHY

I was born in 1984 in Mexico City in a Jewish family, I am the second of four children. I have lived in Mexico City my entire life and have had the opportunity to travel the world.

Since I was a little girl I loved the arts such as dance, music, painting and photography.

Additionally, my family and I have always been into sports. As a child, I loved going abroad to summer camps where I could engage in arts and sports. Later on, I became a dance teacher and taught for several years. I consider myself a friendly person and a perfectionist. I am curious and love to learn new things, I am adventurous and love adrenaline.

I had the opportunity to live a few months in Tel Aviv, Paris, New York and Buenos Aires. These experiences helped me to know myself and to grow into the person I am today, full of creativity, ideas, love and joy. I majored in graphic design and worked as a freelance designer for different companies until I opened my own photography art business where I worked for 8 Years. After that I decided to paint full time, making art my way of living.

I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 3 lovely children.

I always try to do my best in life, looking for ways to improve and be better in everything I do, from being a mother and wife to being an artist, but mostly I make sure to stay true to myself and spend my time doing what I love.

STATEMENT

My name is Linda Achar, I am an artist and graphic designer. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve dabbled in art, expressing my creativity through dance, music and currently, through my paintings. The arts seem to have always been a natural part of who I am. I love to paint, but specifically, I love that through my paintings I can express myself. Painting became a large part of my life after a career transition and has remained a significant part of my life since. Through this transition it felt like painting helped me to regain my freedom and expression.I aim for my artwork to be beautiful, aesthetic and decorative. But more importantly, I aim for my art to speak and send messages. As an artist I paint for people to not only see, but also to feel. There is more to art than the moment in which the work is created. There is a story within each art piece for all of us.My artwork shares the stories and messages of people across the world. Through portraiture I help people relate to one another and understand that despite our differences we are all related across boundaries.My portraits speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, and help people to hear their calls and become aware of their challenges. The first step in progress is awareness, and I urge us all to become aware and perhaps be led to feel some sense of compassion. I want to contribute in making the world a better place and to inspire society and humankind to have positive impacts. I do this with every single brush stroke. I consider myself lucky to be able to embrace and be immersed in art. I am grateful to have this gift.My goal is to share this gift with every single soul and to be an inspiration for artists and people to become better artists and better Human beings. I do what I love and I love what I do.
