Lynne is an international artist currently working and living between New York City and Berlin, Germany and Venice, Italy. Raised in Queens, New York she attended the NYC public school system. As a magnet program for dance the experience at Benjamin Cardozo High School had a great impact on the future direction of her work. Lynne received a Bachelor degree in fine arts from Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts, a Master degree in art and art education from Teachers College Columbia University, and a Master degree in studio art through New York University, which took place in New York City, Venice, Italy and commenced in Berlin, Germany. Post-graduation she obtained a summer certificate through the MFA Program at the Transart Institute, Plymouth University, UK in Berlin, Germany. Lynne is in her final year of a PhD program in the philosophy of aesthetics and art theory at the Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts based in Portland, Maine, with program locations and topological studies taking place in Tuscany, Italy, Berlin, Germany, Paris, France, Istanbul, Turkey and New York City.
She has won fellowships in the arts in New York for drawing through the National Gallery Art and Museum School, in Venice, Italy for printmaking and most recently for a film project based in Berlin through the Berlin Collective and kulturspace.
Lynne has held positions as a fine artist, art educator, professor as well as administrator and community worker. At the NYCTS Lynne creates arts based curriculum as well as video and film projects. Lynne covers all events as a photographer and videographer as well as program participant. She has taught art and art education in public schools in New York City as well as Kean College and William Paterson University located in New Jersey.
Her artwork, drawings, mixed media, sculpture, film and video has been exhibited in New York, NY, Venice, Italy, Berlin, Germany and L’Isle D’Abeau France.
After receiving her BFA, Lynne began working as the personal archivist for the New Realist artist Arman at his home and studio in Tribeca, Manhattan. Following this she became the personal assistant to the CEO for Activision games. A year later Lynne returned to school to receive permanent licensing and certification as an art teacher in New York and New Jersey. Lynne has worked as a full time art teacher in the New York City public school system and then as full time and adjunct lecturer and professor of art and art education at both Kean and William Paterson University in New Jersey.
Aside from solely focusing on creating and exhibiting her own art, she is currently employed with a small non-profit organization, NYCTS, involved in community programming within underserved and high risk areas of Brooklyn and Queens, New York. NYCTS focuses upon child/senior pedestrian and community safety programming, empowering and improving lives through the incorporation of projects in the visual arts. Lynne has completed various arts education and community art programs and projects in New York, USA, Berlin, Germany as well as Lyon/L Isle D Abeau, France (please see community projects section for videos and more information).
Observations and interactions upon space, society and politics factor into the formation of my artistic concepts. Object/subject, movement and energy, form and content relationships are of particular interest, how each informs the other to create a conversation and a meaningful salient experience.
My current art practice varies in materials and dimensions based upon concepts and ideas. Large-scale drawings, collage, sculpture, digital drawings, traditional printmaking, film and video. A mixture of techniques and materials are part of the process of creation to realize a concept. Materials span from fine art mediums to photography and video, to the use of found objects and building materials.
