Lynn was awarded second place for her drawing Tamura
pencil on paper
Lynn became interested in art as early as her memory allows, creating intricate pointilist drawings with the brightly colored markers given to her by her mom. In the 2nd grade, a collage she created in art class was submitted by her teacher to a local community art show and won 1st place. It was so exciting. She was so young.
Lynn went on to pursue her own drawing through her teens, and at 20 became the youngest set designer at the Universal Studios art department. She worked designing sets and art directing for film and television for 33 years, taking classes at the local Los Angeles art schools during weekends and hiatus. Art is the core of her life. Her entire family has a deep creative spirit that creates a bond of loving support.
Important shows that Lynn was juried into:
2013 - American Women Artists - annual juried exhibit - K. Newby Gallery, Tubac Arizona.
2012 - 2019 - California Art Club Gold Medal Show. Winner of the Gold Medal for best sculpture in years 2012 and 2014.
2017 - National Sculpture Society of Southern California - Sparks Gallery, San Diego, California.
2019 - Poets and Artists - Adorn Me - curated by Carol Hodes.
Lynn’s drawing of Tamura was inspired by the wonderful model and actress. She has such an animated presence, and even in the moments between regaling us with her stories, her face is revealing some thought as it crosses her mind. This drawing captured one of those moments, and Lynn wanted to be sure to put in that remarkable lip gloss the model was wearing.
