Lynn was recently asked how long she had been an artist and had she always loved to paint and do mixed media? She laughed and said she wished she hadn’t had to wait until she was 60 years old and her daughter and grandchildren moved to Vietnam. No longer needed as a weekend grandmother, she decided to find a new passion. Fortunately she lived across the street from the Los Angeles Museum of Art and decided to take a class. It worked!
After her first drawing class, she studied at art studios and participated in shows in Los Angeles: working with oils, painting colorful landscapes, cityscapes, farms, and sunsets. But a recent move to San Francisco presented her with some new challenges. Her art soon changed into acrylic abstract, encaustic, monoprinting and multimedia, using recycled packing materials, newspaper covers, old National Geographic photos and scraps wherever she can find them.
