Bio

My paintings are a synthesis of the histories, sensations, dreams and direct response to the magical soup of life as it happens around me. I draw on the phenomenal examples left behind by some of the greatest artists of the early and mid century, Motherwell, Rothko, Arp, Miro, Kline and Richter to name a few. Having studied at the academies, they created a great foundation of art making, then stepped into the unknown world of creative expressionism with gale wind force. My paintings begin with a shape, then another and another and I allow my intuition, inner promptings to guide my hand. It is a true dance and I keep working until the paint has a voice of it's own. I am playing with concepts that are ephemeral and real at the same time, with shapes and colors colloding, sliding, shifting and telling a story of their own. I fill the canvas with colors that vibrate and glow with their own special beauty and urge the canvas into a harmonious whole.

I began my studies with the academician Theodore Lukits, who had a private studio in Los Angeles. I then went on to Otis Parsons under James Doolin, then on to the local art schools in the Los Angeles area. The primary focus was the figure, which I painted and sculpted for 2 decades. With numerous shows and work in private collections here and abroad, I am now turning to deepen my artistic experience with abstract expressionism.

During this time of study, I worked as a set designer in film and television. My first job was in 1977 as a young set designer, working at Universal studios on 'Baretta', 'Bionic Woman', 'Million Dollar Man', 'Quincy' to name a few. I went on to work at the major film studios over a 33 year period. Some of my favorite projects were "Back to the Future", "Who Framed Roger Rabbit", "The Matrix", "Batman", "Six Feet Under", "True Blood" and "House". I retired in 2009 and began to focus full time as a fine artist.

Letter of thanks from collector

Dear Lynn,


Kraig, Sophia, and The Player arrived yesterday.  We love them.  Thank you for taking such care in shipping them.

More importantly, we wish to thank you for your help in the entire process.  Working with you was a delight.  Buying art for our new home was challenging.  Being able to expand the pool thru the internet was great.  Finding you was wonderful.  The sculptures looked good on the computer but we still had qualms.  When they arrived we found that they are even better than we anticipated.

Thank you so very much,

Susan and Coyn Richardson
Sarasota, FL
