An accomplished listee, Ms. Zeldin Kahn celebrates many years' experience in her professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes she has accrued in her field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value.

Teaching studio arts classes to adults and children in Sharon, MA for more than 30 years, Ms. Zeldin Kahn is a talented artist who paints oil and water media and teaches drawing and painting. She is known for her portraits in oil and watercolor. She encourages her students not to let fear stifle their creativity. She noticed that a lack of confidence keeps many students from being innovative and experimental in their work therefore copying what they see instead of allowing their most creative work come forward. Outside of teaching in her studio, she has demonstrated painting to Art Associations, and has been known to serve as a juror for various events such as the Mansfield Art Festival and the Easton Art Festival, as well as for the Stoughton Art Association Show and the Franklin Art Association.

Ms. Zeldin Kahn enjoys painting what the spirit encourages her to do. This brings her to paint portraits, flowers and landscapes, as well as religious scenes from her reading of the Old Testament. Included in several one-woman shows at the Audobon Gallery at Moosehill Sanctuary in Sharon and at Stonehill College in Easton, MA, she has also been featured in many group shows over the years, including at the Attleboro Arts Museum in Attleboro, MA, Lakeside Gallery in Sharon, The Gallery in the Square in Sharon, the Artistic Appetites Gallery in Hyannis, MA, the Wenninger's Gallery in Rockport, MA, the Perkin's Gallery in Stoughton, MA.

The author of “Enhance Your Creativity and Break Artists Block” in 2014, Ms. Zeldin Kahn includes 139 full-color illustrations where she demonstrates how she works with students to encourage their creative style. Revealing to them and to readers those negative thoughts will often hold an artist back and recognizing how an artist can sometime sabotage their own creativity, the book helps to explore, innovate and find a painting style all their own. The book can be found on BarnesandNoble.com, Amazon.com, and many other booksellers.
