Lynn’s passion for art started at an early age. This was primarily due to the close relationship she had with her uncle who was a painter. Even though he is no longer with us, Lynn shares his love for color, texture, and novelty.
“Early on, I fell in love with charcoal after taking several drawing classes in college. One of my first drawings was of an old woman with a shroud. That drawing actually made it through a tornado that took our family home down completely. She was untouched, the glass in the frame intact. She hangs in my home today.”
Some years would go by, before art reentered Lynn’s life. “It was the strangest experience. Suddenly, the thought occurred to me, I want to paint!” “I had never painted before, and didn’t have a clue as to how I was going to do it, but I knew without a doubt I would figure it out”.
This epiphany was the beginning of a deep and significant life change for her. “I discovered heavy mediums, metallic paints, palette knives and it was a match made in Heaven!” Lynn has created a very unique style of contemporary textured art. Each painting has color, depth, and movement. She is constantly thinking of new and unique ways to create “sculptures on canvas”.
Her thirst for new ideas led her to a new concept she calls “Wall Art”. “I wanted to create a way to fill up a large wall space." These pieces can be as large as 8’x8’, and are larger versions of her “smaller” textured paintings.
More recently, Lynn has returned to her “roots”, in charcoal drawings. Currently, she has an African focus and is fascinated by the customs, rituals, and lives of different tribes in Africa.
Lynn's textured art can be seen at Gallery J2 in Scottsdale, AZ.
