Lynn is an award winning contemporary abstract painter who lives and works in Austin, TX.
She fell in love with the freedom of painting with watercolors on Yupo many years ago.
Yupo is a unique alternative to traditional art papers. It's a synthetic paper made of polypropylene plastic that is tree-free and recyclable. The plastic is a slippery surface that makes it difficult to control the painting process. The looseness of the watercolors as they flow over the paper seems to give them a mind of their own.
Lynn relies upon her intuition to guide her through the many surprises she encounters while painting on Yupo. Sometimes she is able to create what she intended to paint. Many other times, she just paints with the “flow”.
Painting in this loose and flowing style suits her personality. She lets the imperfections become a part of the process.
The more you look at her paintings, the more you see.
Lynn uses her background in Art Therapy to enrich the lives of those who are overlooked.
"I bring the gift of art to those seeking a new means of self expression and self esteem."
Giving back is important to Lynn.
She shares her love of art as she teaches classes for the homeless, seniors, Alzheimer patients, and adults with special needs. Her students learn to paint what they feel and to paint from the heart. This is how Lynn paints.
Lynn received her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis, Mo.
