Linda Rubietta

Linda Rubietta was born and raised in Clearwater, Florida. This colorful tourist town was the perfect catalyst for sparking her creativity and imagination. She graduated with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design and Advertising from the University of South Florida and a M.F.A. in Fine Arts & Art History from Syracuse University.

Linda moved to the Midwest with her husband, Rick and daughter, Tracy, to pursue a career in advertising. Linda spent the next 30 years as an award-winning graphic designer, art director, and creative director in several major ad agencies. Her artwork varied from traditional to abstract, following her creative spirit where ever it took her.

Linda’s battle with cancer and chemotherapy inspired her to help others through their journey by creating The Chemo Survival Guide (2009), and laid the foundation for The Chemo Zone (2011). The Chemo Zone is an easy-to-use resource that provides patients with the tools to gain control through this stressful, challenging journey.
