Bio
20171017202641-lynn_bio_pic

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.
