Artist Statement and Biography

The paintings are primarily concerned with geometric abstraction, textural expression and atmospheric phenomena evocative of natural occurrences where internal illumination or decomposition is exhibited.  The titles of the paintings are the first lines of  accompanying four-line poems.

Originally from New York City, Lynne settled in the Bay Area and received her BFA from Academy of Art College.  A series of her watercolors was exhibited in art galleries in Mill Valley, and published as note cards by Pomegranate Press.  After a successful career as an illustrator, graphic artist and textile designer, she returned to her foremost passions, painting and writing poetry, in 2005.
