Zelda (1910-2000) was a master of water color, oil, pencil, and pen and ink. She enjoyed painting the floral still life, landscapes, ocean and city scenes, and abstract designs. She liked to experiment with different styles and media. Even in her 60's, she was still trying new things, such as using colored felt-tip pens to create geometric designs. She had such a broad range that a viewer would find it remarkable that the same person could paint in such different ways.

Zelda's parents were Polish and Russian immigrants. The family lived in Dorchester, Massachusetts on Columbia Road. In her day job, she was clerical staff for the State of Massachusetts. She studied drawing and painting in the evenings. Her spare time was filled with art. From the 1940's through the 1960's, Zelda showed her work. She showed at the Rockport Artists group, and was inspired by watercolor artist Ted Kautzky. In 1962 and 1964, she won the still life category at the Rockport Amateur Artists' Association shows. Her still life with peaches was the 1964 winner. Since the 1960's, Zelda's work was hidden from public view until an exhibit of eight of her still life and floral watercolors at the Daniels Gallery in Boston, MA. in August, 2005.
