Hello! Glad you stopped in to check my website out. I’m LLeeM. Well, I am Linda Lee Marletto, known to friends and family as simply “Linda.” Why LLeeM? I decided since my parents gave me a middle name, that I really should use it for something. I finally found a use for it as an artist.
I have always been creative, but not an artist. I have been a medical/surgical nurse for 40 years, working mainly in hospitals. I loved helping and encouraging people, but nursing is a very challenging profession, even in normal times. My faith in God has been a major part of my life since I was very young and it was faith that enabled me to carry on through some very challenging years. Many a day when I cried out to the Lord for help and comfort and His response to me is what became the basis for my book “Spirit and Heart Words to Encourage and Inspire.”
Then, after retiring early, my life took off in another direction. The Lord opened a door for me that turned my world around. Now, I have always been creative and loved crafting. I did bazaars for many years and enjoyed what I did. Then, suddenly it seemed, a door opened into the world of art. I had been creating digital collage art for years, but not going anywhere with it. I started looking for an artist group to share my art with and grow as an artist. I found a mentoring program called Created to Thrive to learn how to reach out as an artist. I can tell you that this is a whole different world than nursing! Even being in charge of a medical/surgical unit did not prepare me for this new world.
Well, enough for now. If you go to my Store page you will find a free download. It is a digital collage that I did called “Trust.” Trust is what I needed during my years as a nurse, when I retired and changed directions and today, in a world that is changing and challenging everyone.
